There is nothing more awful than buying a fabulous new pair of shoes, only to discover that your feet are screaming in pain when you go to break them in. Are we right? It seems like many trends in footwear are stunning on the surface, but they aren’t always the most comfortable in real life. Luckily for us, though, slide sandals are at the top of the charts in trends right now, providing both style AND comfort to those of us who are looking for something cute to walk around in – minus the blisters!
Slide sandals, believe it or not, can be a year-round wardrobe staple, and pair well with just about any look. Hollywood’s hottest stars, Angelina Jolie and Hailey Baldwin, to name a few, rock the trend effortlessly in both streetwear and even for more dressed-up occasions. One of our favorite looks involving some gorgeous slide sandals is when Hailey Baldwin flaunted a gorgeous pair of white Amina Muaddi slide heels, paired with jeans and a green sweater. She added to her look with a yellow Prada cross body bag, Anita Ko hooped earrings, and a face mask by Evolvetogether. She held hands with her superstar husband, Justin Bieber, as they set out for a dinner date in Malibu, California in August. Her elegant slides brought the perfect amount of glam to an otherwise casual look!
But let’s be clear here, slide sandals are certainly not limited to just dinner dates or evenings out on the town. There are dozens of perfect slides that can be worn for running errands, shopping or just hanging around the house. Hollywood icon Angelina Jolie knows what she’s doing when it comes to fashion, and the actress has been spotted multiple times wearing cute slides while running casual errands. Angie rocked a stunning pair of tan Valentino Garavani slides, known to be a favorite of hers, along with clear aviator shades, a simple white t-shirt, and black trousers when heading out to a pet store with her daughter, Vivienne. Leave it to Angelina to always flaunt her beautiful self – even when just buying dog food!
From dressed up with a little heel, to downright flat and ultra-comfortable, we’ve gathered together a few of the most stylish slide sandals you need to have in your closet- no matter the season. Check these out!
1. Slide Sandal Mules With Heels
We found a pair of white slide mules similar to the pair Hailey is wearing above! We love the unique features on these shoes, even if they’re not a carbon-copy of the model’s footwear. The strap has a quilted pattern while the front is square-toed, which is very in style right now — just look at Kylie Jenner‘s shoe closet as proof. Like Hailey’s, these mule shoes come with a heel if you’re looking for dressier slides. $36, amazon.com
2. Foam Slide Sandals With Buckles
For streetwear meets Birkenstocks, meet FUNKYMONKEY’s double buckle sandals. The monochrome white foam material is playful and the perfect compliment to a graphic tee or a pastel ensemble (both of which we imagine you’ll be wearing as the weather warms up). Rising temperatures also mean that you’ll be outside more often, so you’ll want slides that can handle some wear and tear (and wash off any accumulated dirt from outside easily). Well, you’re in luck, because these sandals are both waterproof and washable. They’re also comfortable enough to wear for your walking outing since Amazon says it has a “padded and contoured footbed” that will “mold to the shape of your foot.” $19, amazon.com
3. Neon Slide Sandal Mules
Okay, we couldn’t resist adding another mule slide heel to this list. Mules have been one of the hottest footwear trends and Hailey loves rocking neon shoes! Here’s an extra vibrant pair for our rainbow-loving shoppers! The combination of neon green and plastic will add a stylish edge to an otherwise plainer outfit (think high-waisted jeans and a crop top), while also complementing an outfit that’s already vibrant (if you want to step out in head-to-toe neon to pull off a cyberpunk look). $40, amazon.com
4. Fur Slides
These sandals remind us of SKIMS’ famous slides, but for nearly half the price! These will make for the perfect house slippers thanks to their thick memory foam cushion, arch support, and extra-cozy fur. The soles even have an anti-skid footbed to ensure that your slides will stay firmly put, so that you don’t actually go sliding while doing chores inside the house. Plus, Hailey has been spotted on multiple occasions in fuzzy slides. More than 2,600 shoppers left reviews for these affordable slide sandals on Amazon! $24, amazon.com
5. Crochet Knit Slide Sandals
We wanted to introduce another comfortable pair of flat slides that are still dressy enough to pair with a blouse and skinny jeans, just like Angelina does. And since crochet is having a big moment as spring arrives, we couldn’t help but include these knit slide sandals on the list! They’ll coordinate perfectly with that knit skirt coverup you’ll be wearing over your bikini bottoms as it becomes warm enough to hit the pool or beach. These sandals are also available with a black knit strap. $12, target.com
6. Sporty Slide Sandals
Look like a cool cat in Puma’s Cool Cat slides. These athletic slides are the perfect finishing touch for an athleisure outfit (think a trendy tracksuit). The baby blue is also a fun touch to a sporty outfit ensemble! But the slides aren’t just all for show. The textured and cushioned footbed is a relief for your feet after a long day of walking in heels and stiff shoes. Even better, stars like Rihanna and Selena Gomez love the brand! $15, amazon.com
7. Braided Slide Sandals
Not all slide sandals need to feature the same mono-strap. Take for instance this funky pair from Dolce Vita, which looks like it could be part of an art installation! You’ll look fashion-forward in these eclectic slides and even receive a little boost, too, thanks to the chunky soles on these cushiony shoes. Even better, Hailey loves rocking athleisure wear with chic outfits, and these look like a pair she would rock. $60, dsw.com
