5 Pairs Of Pool Slides You Can Wear All Summer Long
Summer must have item
What was once only a look worn by dads on vacay and men above the age of 50, it’s safe to say the humble slide has come a long way from its poolside beginning. After a quick ascent to fame in 2015, the pool slide has proven its staying power too, with designers and brands all offering their own modern take on the slip-on sandal.
With a hint of 90s nostalgia and undeniably comfortable, it’s no wonder celebrities have taken to the look too. Just last summer we saw G-Dragon, the solo K-pop star and leader of K-pop group, Big Bang, pioneer the trend by pairing designer slides with thick ribbed-knit socks - Scrumbro style.
But celebrities aside, regardless of whether you’re headed on a beach vacation or simply staying put in the city, no wardrobe is complete without a pair of pool slides. Infinitely versatile and wearable – what other shoe can claim to pair with loose tailoring, complement well-worn jeans and add a cool edge to romantic mini dresses? Take it from us, this is the only shoe you’ll be wearing this summer.
Nike Benassi Sliders
The summer alternative to sneakers, Nike’s Benassi slides can be worn to toughen up floral dresses, feminine separates and billowing maxis. With an effortless athletic vibe, they’re embossed with the brand’s Swoosh logo and are made from lightweight rubber for all-day comfort. Add a pair of printed or striped ribbed-knit socks for extra streetwear points.
Givenchy Logo Slides
Though sporty in nature, top designers have taken the shape of the pool slide and run with it, creating elevated takes on the everyday style. This pair from Givenchy may be 10x the price of Nike’s but are still a worthwhile investment considering the cost per wear you’ll get out of them. Made in Italy from rubber, they have a logo-embossed strap, supportive contoured footbeds and gripped soles.
（３）Valentino Rubber Slides
We love that Valentino brings its inherently rock ‘n roll edge to these pool slides. Go classic by opting for a pair all in black or show your allegiance proud by choosing a colourful or gold logo style.
Burberry Vintage Check Slides
（５）Love Moschino Heart Patch Slides
Have you ever seen a pair of pool slides look this cute? We think not. In Moschino’s typical whimsical fashion, these rubber slides come in a vibrant red hue and are embellished with red hearts that sit atop cool transparent straps. Try them with embellished socks, as seen on the runway.
