Best Foot Forward | Superior Slide Sandals for the Summer

This summer season calls for some necessary upgrades to your poolside attire.

Since you probably had a pair of these back in high school, you will no doubt remember just how comfortable the slide sandal is. Not much has changed in the design since back then. These comfy shoes are still made from rubber, and have limited accessories on them, with maybe the Moto by Suicoke being the one exception.

What these simple shoes lack in sole they make up for in simplicity and style. Whether you go for a camo pair from Valentino, an athletic iteration by Adidas, or light cream by Aldo, a pair of slide sandals are a necessary summer accessory.

When you pick up a pair, it’s only natural to get another necessary summer staple: new boardshorts. We paired our favorite slides with some of our favorite new boardies. Included in the mix are pop-culture, desert designed ones from Ambsn, classic stripes from Banks and Captain Fin, pops of color from The Critical Slide Society, and retro-modern Volcom Stonies with faded black uppers and tie-dye lowers.
