Whether you have a resort getaway booked or plan to hit up your neighborhood haunts all season, you need some easy slip-on sandals for warm weather months. Here, discover 12 sporty pool slides with endless styling potential.
Major ‘60s-era flower power vibes are back, just in time for summer. These multicolored daisy slides from Larroudé’s collab with fellow shoe brand Melissa reference the carefree, joyful spirit that defined the retro decade.
This style is modeled after Birkenstock’s iconic, two-strap Arizona Sandal, only made of a rubber-like waterproof material, so you can lounge poolside without fear of slipping and sliding all over the place.
Balenciaga brings the athluxe trend poolside with its sporty Mold Slides. But despite the shoes' athletic details and design (like its foam-cushioned footbed and sculpted sole) remember: No running by the pool.
ICYMI: Jelly shoes (yes, like the glitter-specked, ultra-squishy pairs from your childhood) have undergone a fashion-forward rebrand. Franco Sarto’s thong-meets-slide option is a prime example of 2022’s more refined take on the style.
Leave it to the Alessandro Michele-helmed Gucci to offer an in-your-face maximalist option. And if you’re personally not a fan of hot pink, the luxury fashion house offers the Web Slide Sandal in its iconic black, dark green, and maroon colorway as well.
Considering terry cloth fashion is both Tracee Elliss Ross and Kendall Jenner-approved, you can expect pieces made of the towel material to be prevalent this summer. Tap into the soon-to-be-everywhere trend with Simon Miller’s Terry Slides.
An age-old hack for giving a traditionally forgettable style (like pool slides) a more purposeful and high fashion feel is to opt for an eclectic color-clash. Consider lime green and lavender or, as seen on Marni’s slip-ons, tangerine and fuchsia.
With Cougar’s padded sandals, you can effortlessly master the cloudcore trend, aka any and all things made of oh-so-soft puffy materials. And because their under-$100 price tag is certainly worth emphasizing — peep that they’re only $80.
These are a pair of luxurious slides you can wear for a myriad of vacation activities: relaxing in a cabana by the water, sight-seeing and exploring what your locale has to offer, or dining at the resort restaurant. (Post-trip, they’re also quite cute with baggy jeans and a T-shirt.)
