the 25 coolest slides of the summer

the ‘it’ shoe of the moment

It's officially sandal season, and there's no time like now to try something new. Forget your strappy, difficult sandals and go for the new shower-slide trend, instead. We think these are the most comfortable, (ath-lesiure anyone?) chicest sandals of the moment. Now, you don't have to style them with Nike socks like a true high-school soccer girl, but we won't judge you if you do. Go for it.
