Mules, box-fresh Stan Smiths and Gucci-inspired loafers may be racking up the Instagram mileage, but pool slides are another trend that is heating up for summer. Sturdier than flip flops but just as easy to slide on feet, pool slides are the effortless summer shoe that offers a bit of height, ample comfort and a mega dose of athleisure cool. Not to mention that they show off a pretty pedicure.
Pool slides began making a comeback a few seasons ago, thanks to chunky styles spotted on the runways during the rise of the “ugly shoe” trend. For 2017, slides have been given a fancy makeover complete with furry trim, statement beading, bright colors and sometimes a combination of all of the above. This new breed of pool slide is definitely not just for lounging by the water.
Thankfully, we can get in on the trend without breaking the bank. Look-at-me pool slides have trickled down from the runways to the shops without losing any of their cool. Click through the gallery to see the sliders you will want to slip your feet into ASAP.
