One shoe that I absolutely can’t enough of is a backless slide. As much as I love wearing heels, I appreciate a comfortable pair of slides to get me through my busiest days. I’ve been having to do so much running around lately and wearing this shoe style keeps everything hassle-free without putting a strain on my feet. It also doesn’t hurt that slides come in a variety of different styles and can be either dressy or casual. Below are some of the reasons I can’t get enough of this shoe trend for spring as well as some of my favorite styles to shop from!
Slides are obviously very comfortable and make it easy to get around. I never have to worry about my feet hurting after a few hours of wearing them, and they’re also appropriate to wear to several places. You can be both comfortable and professional at the office in a pair of sleek slides, or you can be entirely relaxed with a casual pair on vacation or at the beach. Comfort is key!
If you haven’t had enough time to freshen up your pedicure, don’t worry because there are slides for those days too. Thankfully we can shop from both close-toed and open-toed options, depending on our style and preference. There’s also a lot of shoes that have incorporated cute detailing such as striped patterns, polka dots, jewel accents and more into their flat designs. A pair of stylish slides aren’t hard to find, and there’s so many that work for each of us.
Another huge plus is that there are so many budget-friendly styles of cute slides as well. Sure, if you’d like to splurge on a designer pair such as the classic Gucci loafers, that’s an option, but if it’s not, you still won’t miss out on the trend. I’ve come across some great affordable options that are just as trend-forward as the more expensive ones.
I’ve already mentioned the comfort level of these shoes, but they also make it easier to pack for a trip. So when I say travel-friendly, I mean both physically and concerning your luggage space. Slides are small enough to stack on top of each other in your bag if you’re looking to travel with several pairs of shoes. As we all know, heels and boots can take up the most space, and this saves us the trouble of even having to worry about that.
