Summer’s Here! Time to Slip on Slides!
If simple is your style, then slides are for you! The only real distinguishing feature of women’s slide shoes is that they lack a back. Other than that, slides can vary in both style and shape, from short to tall heel height or featuring an open- or closed-toe. Because of their great variety, women’s slides are a very versatile style of shoe; the slide style can range from casual and comfortable to spectacularly, dazzlingly formal. Check out this summer’s hottest styles of slides: mules, wedges, and flats!
The Mule, A Fancier Offspring of the Slide
Because of the diversity of slides, they can often be broken down and categorized. One sub-section of the slide family is the mule, which is a shoe with an open back and a closed toe. Mules, often called clogs, were popularized by Marilyn Monroe in the 1950’s, but don’t worry, mules have modernized with the times and today, models showcase mules such as Hale Bob’s Foxglove mule. The Foxglove slide shoe features a 4.5 inch seductive stiletto heel, as well as the flair of a velvet blossom, complete with glimmering black beads, on the vamp. Sexy and chic, wearing the Foxglove will definitely draw attention to your fashionable feet!
This Summer’s Sizzling Style: The Wedge Slide
One of the hottest trends this summer is the revival of the wedge, so prepare to see some sizzling wedge slides like the Anna by Charles David featured in shop windows and magazines! The Anna slide shoe, featuring a 4 inch wedge heel, an open toe, and stylish chocolate crossed elastic straps, is elegantly casual and will complement your summery outfit on a trip to the park for a picnic or a stroll around town on a hot summer’s day.
Slides Sans Heels
Though slides as shoes often provide ease and comfort to the wearer, on occasion, some women find slides with heels difficult to walk in because of a lack of support sans an ankle strap or a closed heel. For those who anticipate this being a problem, don’t give up on slides! There are certain slide styles sans heels that could be perfect for you: for example, flats. Jessica Simpson’s Jaysie heel is another trendy summer shoe perfect for lazy summer days by the beach or gnawing watermelon in the park. Featuring an extra toe strap and silver vintage metal hardware, the Jaysie flat combines trendy and comfortable into one affordable summer shoe!
Versatility Breeds Individuality
For the woman who loves simple, no-hassle shoes, women’s slides represent perfection. The only distinguishing characteristic of slides is an open back, but other than that, slides have no limitations on style, making slides versatile shoes that can range from the sophisticatedly fancy to the classically casual. From mules to wedges to flats, slide shoes cover all of the bases for each and every unique woman’s tastes.
