Celebs like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner have popularized pillow slides, and they’ve become just as beloved for their cool, exaggerated silhouette as their deliciously comfortable feel. From iconic waterproof slides to fluffy slippers that pair that cloud-like feel with cozy warmth, any of the best pillow slides from this list will be a welcome addition to your loungewear collection.

Pillow slides are usually made from ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), a type of flexible rubber known for being lightweight and waterproof, as well as for its shock absorption. That, plus the style’s chunky platform, has earned the shoe its association with pillows (or clouds, depending on whom you ask). Most of the shoes on this list fit that description, but you’ll also find some options with a similar silhouette in fluffy textures that allow you to wear the trend in colder climates.

And these stylish slippers come with some serious outfit opportunities. Sure, they’re a natural pairing with leggings for an athleisure look, or with your bathing suit as a trendy pool shoe, but don’t sleep on folding these shoes into your everyday wardrobe. Imagine them with loose linen pants, or some straight-leg denim and a cashmere cardigan, as an on-trend yet unexpected alternative to your basic sandals or sneakers.

The most comfortable slippers ever are just a click away. Scroll on to shop eight of the best pillow slides.
