You’ve scanned the summer trends. Ordered your super-comfy (but still cute) post-quarantine pants. And you are wearing your favorite pieces in new ways. But have you fallen in love with a pair of slide sandals yet? Say goodbye to shoeback straps for the whole season, and shop these 17 styles which run the gamut from casual to dressy.
1. Anthropologie Kimbra Slide Sandals

2. Gucci Slide Sandal
This status print will be summer’s neutral shoe, pairing well with everything from shorts to your new breezy sundress.
3. Steve Madden Brionna Embellished Slide Sandal

4. Marc Fisher LTD. Nahea Slide Sandal
The woven leather strap is comfy while the cream color looks sexy against bare skin.

6. Jenni Kayne Pony Crossover Sandal
Italian-made, these cheetah-print pony hair sandals are so chic with white jeans and a breezy silk blouse.
7. Dolve Vita Izabel Stud Slide Sandal
We’re seeing this studded snakeskin strappy shoe with your basic black work pants or shorts suit (and the snake-print footbed looks expensive when you kick your shoes off).

The pink lip gloss of summer slide sandals, these white shoes are perky, pretty and reflect well on everything you wear with them.

See-through straps and a two-and-a-half-inch heel—this shoe is going to get tons of compliments.
12. BP Tenley Flat Form Slide Sandal
Natural woven tan straw is as classic as the lines of this dual-strapped shoe, which is as easy to walk in as a flat, except it’s a tad fancier due to the raised hemp-and-cork footbed.
13. Tory Burch Patmos Slide Sandal
The big gold medallion is the only ornament your otherwise pared-down white-on-white jeans and t-shirt will need.
14. Sam Edelman Garson Slide Sandal
A cushioned footbed and soft green knotted leather straps keep you comfy, and the seaglass green colorway is a shot of retro ‘90s cool.
