Trust Us: "Slandals" Are Spring's Comfiest Shoe Trend
There are two kinds of people in the world right now: those who have eagerly reverted to wearing "real shoes" post-lockdown, and those still shamelessly living in house slippers. Fortunately for both camps, designers have latched onto a happy medium. Enter the slandal: chic, comfortable, transitional . . . and ideal for spring (and summer). Think of it as a cross between Gucci's fur-lined loafers and Adidas's signature sporty slides.
It's no wonder, then, that the trend is about to be everywhere, especially considering the fact that it was all over the spring/summer 2021 runways. Rosetta Getty debuted chunky crotchet slides, Balenciaga showcased fuzzy pairs along with a decidedly more minimal satin iteration, and Gabriela Hearst featured knitted slippers with trousers and maxi dresses. Each slandal was (and is) perfect in its simplicity, and cozy details like shearling and padded leather render the style suitable for the outdoors.
As we get back into the swing of getting dressed again, what more could you ask for in a shoe? Ahead, we rounded up the coziest and cutest slandals to get your hands on this season. Because this trend is just too good to pass up.
