Slides are a universal no-fuss shoe. They’re favorites for their timeless style and everyday convenience, and we can’t get enough of them. Since the weather is warming up and stuffy shoes are quietly stepping to the back to the closet, it’s the best time to stock up on the breeziest sandals for daily wear and pool slides for upcoming vacations. We’ve also included a few investment slides for the quiet luxury shoppers.
We’ve got all your color and style preferences, from maximalist summer shades to minimalistic neutral hues. If you can’t let go of your Nike slides, we’ve got a $40 lightweight padded shoe for you to try, and if you’re looking for subtle Gucci slides without all the logos, there’s a gorgeous leather emerald green pair. Ultimately, prepare to relax to the fullest with the best slides for women ahead.
