Behold: Summer's Most Comfortable (and Stylish) Slides

Summer brings out the inner free spirit in us all—allowing us to be a lot more spontaneous, casual, and relaxed. For that reason, we love the ease and simplicity of flat slide sandals. The perfect shoes for long and lazy summer days, they pair perfectly with everything from shorts and tees to breezy dresses and swimsuits. And yes, you can even wear them to dinner—just choose a more elegant style featuring a lustrous satin fabric, a metallic finish, or embellishment. So whether you’re going to the beach or have meetings in the city, swap your time-consuming ankle-wrap sandals and heavy sneakers for a pair of comfortable, carefree, and cool slides.
