Slides have been around since the beginning of time — ever since you can remember, at least. But we’re sure you’re stuck on the idea that pool slides are for athletes instead of the fashion world of show-stopping trends. While you’re 50 percent correct, we are here to prove the other half. There are dozens of fabulous ways to wear our women’s Italian slip-on shoes, whether you love the sporty look or want to branch out and be more chic and classy.
Women’s Italian flat sandals from Shoe-Inn have the most similar design to flip-flops, but they are open-toed as well as backless. They can be flat, have high heels or even have in-between styles. Accompanied by a single strap across the lower toes and part of the upper foot, slides can also have a sequence of straps that are twisted, knotted, braided, Velcro, woven, thin or thick.
The straps on a slide often cover the top portion of your foot, yet some can cover your skin from the ankle to toe. While slides are a type of sandal, not all sandals are slides because the latter can’t have toe or ankle straps. Slides are easy to slide on and off, hence their name.
How You Can Wear Slides on a Daily Basis
As mentioned before, slides are famous for their incredible popularity among athletes. When it comes to the world of sports, you can slip on a pair of slides before a game then switch into your gear. They are also simple to wear after a game if you’re walking around the locker room or outside. Slides are more comfortable compared to cleats or sneakers, and you can wear them barefoot or with high socks.
But slides don’t always have to be sporty. They are fashionable footwear to style with athleisure or more casual and chic looks. Throughout several decades, designers have begun to create high-fashion slide collections. Similar to a dressed-down version of a mule, slides can even give you a more feminine look, helping you avoid the gym image when you pair them with more flirty outfits like dresses, skirts and cropped trousers. Women’s Italian dress sandals are effortless, super comfy and more on-trend than ever before.
It’s important to keep in mind there is a difference between effortless and sloppy. Wear your slides with other feminine and put-together looks, and you’ll have the perfect ensemble. Even our women’s designer sandals with heels can turn your whole outfit around for the better.
