First seen on Fashionisto.
Growing up on the Eastern seaboard of Australia, saw myself and the enormous extended family at the beach, waterhole or theme park most weekends. In those days jelly shoes were in trend as a means to protect the soft sole of the feet from debris in canals and beaches.
This understated foot adornment was ugly and necessary to avoid oyster shells and glass from ruining your Sunday bake.
So, it’s no surprise today that designers have ushered in a period of relaxed trending styles in pool/water footwear. Embracing a laid-back attitude for the season, and exploring the latest offering from brands such as Balmain and Givenchy, slide sandals are front and center.
The no-fuss essential receives an elevated makeover this time around. You can find sandals dressed in mink fur or even a flashy gold lace-up style. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, Adidas has even updated its slide with a fun French terry treatment.
