Style is out of control nowadays and the athletic input of the slide opened up an infinite numbers of possibilities when you ask yourself: "how should I dress today?". The slide defines a laid back attitude but, as it's easy to think, being one of the latest trends it also defines that you want to play it sharp style wise.
Slides and socks together? Absolutely. This is the starting point of a cultural revolution that happened right in front of out eyes. Even Nike Jordan designed its versions and in Nike Jordan Super. Fly Team Slides you have a technical feature to let water leak easily so you should use them to take a shower or to walk from the pool to your towel. Not feeling the Swoosh? The Trefoil can give you a valid alternative with adidas Originals Adilette, even women's sherpa fur ones. As it's easy to imagine, this trend spread like the plague up to a point that these PU items are part of the range of most footwear brands. Fila made Palm Beach Slippers with velour straps when it didn't play following the 90s rule with its big logo. A special mention here has to go to Puma that, among other styles, had the intuition to develop a feminine style that was borrowing the thick midsole from platform shoes. In this way it created the monochrome Platform Slide Women that elevate a bit the standard of this category. Other options not to underestimate are The North Face BC Slides whose finesse of the velour strap will conquer you rather than Ellesse Fillipo Slides that follow an essential design for those that are looking for comfort without frills.
