What Will You Be Wearing on Your Feet This Summer?

The streetwear scene has brought us many new takes on style, but who would have thought that open toe sandals would become chic? Well, this spring and summer season, the growing enthusiasm for designer sliders is forecast to reach a crescendo and make sliders the hottest footwear on the streets this summer.

In case you haven’t heard of them before, and if you haven’t; where have you been? Sliders are flat soled sandals like the Givenchy Sliders with the red and black logo pictured above. They are comfortable to wear, they are easy to slip on and off, and they are smart enough to be worn with just about anything, whether you are on holiday, or just taking a stroll down your high street.

So, how come sandals that you might have previously only associated with Europeans lounging on sunbeds by the hotel pool become so cool? Well, that’s thanks to the many celebrities that have been seen wearing pool sliders over the past few years.

If anyone is going to give a fashion item the cool stamp of approval, then that would be Snoop Dogg. When he had his own fashion show, he had his models walking down the runway in bikinis and sweat-suits and they had socks and sliders on their feet.

If you were looking for someone a bit more old-school to give their seal of approval to designer sliders. How about Iggy Pop? He wore pool sliders to the Cannes Film Festival, when everyone around him was wearing a bow ties, dinner jackets and dress shoes.

Some of the street style superstars, such as Gigi and Bella Hadid have also been seen out wearing their cool looking slides, so there is no question that streetwear has adopted this style of sandal as its own, both for men and for women.

So, designer sliders are going to big this summer and you have plenty to choose from. There are Valentino Sliders, Gucci Sliders, D&G Sliders, and more, and pool sliders are coming in all types of colours and styles this season. In fact, just about all the big designer brands have new spring / summer season pool sliders in the stores right now.

Sliders are probably more versatile than you think. They can be worn with jeans, shorts, trousers, and they can be worn with or without socks. They are so comfortable and practical for the summer as well, and some celebrities have been seen sporting slider style sandals in the winter too.

So, if you want to look cool and feel cool this summer, check out the latest wolf print design sliders from Gucci, or the new season camouflage pool sliders from Valentino, because pool sliders are going to be the must-have footwear item for the summer season that everyone will be wearing.
