17 slides cute enough to pull a fashion faux pas and wear them with socks

The summer season means saying buh-bye to heavy layers, outerwear, and chunky boots. Instead, it’s time to whip out those off-the-shoulder tops, pack up your weekender tote for a getaway, and slip into some fly footwear. While heels are fun for a night out, sometimes you just want something a bit more comfortable. And it doesn’t get comfier than a pair of slides.

What’s not to love about these shoes? You don’t have to worry about any laces, buckles, or zippers. You just…slide right in to them. They’re ideal for pretty much anything, from a day lounging by the pool, to an outdoor festival, to brunching on a lazy Sunday.

Check out 17 stylish slides for any and every occasion.

Maybe you can’t jet set to an exotic location (just yet), but these slides will give you all the tropical vibes.

While some slides have a more chill vibe, these are the opposite. Step into this pair for a night when you want to look fly but still be super comfortable.

This is another hot pair of white slides that are full of glamour.

Denim is probably a staple in your closet, so why not extend that to your shoe game? The dark wash and frayed edges are so chic.

7Sugar Xenonc Slides


Is it really summer if you don’t have at least one gingham item? This checkered print even has the addition of stars.

8Eloquii Layla Satin Embellished Slide


What’s better than a blush satin slide with a beaded pineapple embellishment? This shoe is also specifically designed to accommodate wider feet.

13Gap Espadrille Slide


It’s a slide. It’s an espadrille. No — it’s an espadrille slide! Best of both worlds.

14Target A New Day Raffia Tassel Slide


Yet another reason to pay a visit to the Target. In addition to the tiered tassels, these babies are suitable for hours of walking.

15Mari A Marlee Two Strap Sandal


Mixing prints is cool, but we also love a little texture play thanks to the smooth vegan leather and pebbled pewter straps.

16Fenty Puma by Rihanna Jelly Slides


These aren’t the jelly sandals you wore as a kid. They’re super cute and won’t actually feel like they’re melting on your feet.
