These Comfortable And Stylish Slide Sandals Will Get You Excited For Summer

These Comfortable And Stylish Slide Sandals Will Get You Excited For Summer

We’re nearly halfway through spring, which means a couple of things. One: your winter wardrobe is taking its last seasonal bow. Those turtleneck sweaters, puffer coats, and wool pants are being washed, folded, and stored away where they'll get a few months of rest before the inevitable return of their time in the spotlight. Two: you are looking enthusiastically toward the future, as in planning summer vacations, reviving not-so-socially-distanced get-togethers, and most importantly, dreaming of all the summer outfits you’ll soon wear. As we inch closer to June, so does your closet. Sundresses, swimsuits, and sandals are probably top of mind, and rightfully so. These are the quintessential keys to a warm-weather wardrobe, and thankfully, they're not too difficult to find. 

As far as sandals are concerned, there are many ways to check off that box, but few things beat a style that can flourish in all kinds of settings. This is where the slide sandal comes into play. Like its winter equivalent—the ankle boot—the slide sandal is multifunctional. Pair them with a maxi dress for formal occasions, or put them in your beach bag to wear on the sand. For lack of a better word, the slide sandal is just an easy option that has a certain elevated aesthetic you won’t find in flip-flops or sneakers, yet it’s just as comfortable. We’d be surprised if you weren’t already on the hunt for a perfect pair, which is why we went a few steps ahead to track down the very best options. And because we know budget matters, we were sure to include options that cover a wide range of prices.
