Slides are to shoes what boy bands are to music. They have ups and downs, people can’t really say if they like them or not, and their comebacks are usually short-lived.

The casual footwear was one of last summer’s major staple and is still around today. The Adidas slides (a long time classic) may be a safe choice, but many non sports brands have come up with cool interpretations. Gucci, Miu Miu, Isabel Marant, Valentino, Chanel, they all fell for the oldie but goodie trend. If the shape is pretty much the same, each favors a particular material, pattern or ornament.
