The other summer trend you need on your feet this summer is the summer slide. Effortlessly stylish, they add to your wardrobe what your flip flops cannot. Don’t get us wrong, flip flops are a summer footwear staple-- great to throw on for errands, the pool, and pair well with most outfits. We are not calling for a break up with our beloved sandal, instead, consider the summer slide as a fashionable alternative that’s just as comfy.
Jean shorts, tee-shirt, and flip flops scream casual. Take the same outfit and pair with the summer slide for an instant pop of elevated style. The best part, the transformation is easy on the wallet. We’ve rounded up a dozen different styles of slides that are all under $35. Fashion and comfort have met their equal.
