If you hadn’t noticed, of-the-moment trends are leaning toward effortlessness more than ever. As witnessed on off-duty models and street-style stars alike, pieces that exude ease and comfort are becoming hero items, styled with polished counterparts for a cool-girl result. From athletic-inspired cropped sweatshirts to lounge pants, we’re seeing a shift from put-together looks to ensembles that embody a more “throw it on and go” aesthetic—and footwear is following suit. While delicate heels and classic pumps forever have a place in our hearts, the recent crop of must-have shoes are uncomplicated slip-on silhouettes sans laces and fussy details. From low-heel mules to sporty pool slides, these shoes are cooler and chicer than ever. Ahead, 12 styles to shop now.
