You’ve probably heard the news: Squishy pool slides are the ugly sandal of the year. (Sorry, Birkenstocks.) Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid have been sporting the platform sandals over the last few months, so they’ve most likely made an appearance on your Instagram and TikTok feeds. There are tons of Amazon and designer options out there already, but Coach just launched its own pillow slides, and we have a feeling they’re going to be on everyone’s feet this summer.
Coach recently gave its Ulla slides a summer upgrade to match the Pillow Tabby bag that’s been making the rounds on TikTok. Instead of shearling, the slides now feature a soft, puffy band that’s embossed with Coach’s signature “C” logo. They’re available in the same colors as the Pillow Tabby: black, white, pink, and purple. They have contoured rubber soles and are available in sizes 5 to 11 (Coach recommends sizing up if you’re in between sizes).
Our take? Given the bag’s popularity and the fact that pool slides are the It shoe right now, the Ulla sandals will most likely sell out — especially since they’re only $85. That’s pretty affordable for a Coach shoe, people.
If you’re wondering if you can pull off pillow slides, we promise you can — they’re pretty versatile thanks to their sporty, slightly elevated look. Wear them with a simple tee and jeans during the day and a slinky slip dress on date night, or take a page out of the supermodel handbook and just throw ‘em on with leggings and a cardigan. The possibilities are endless.
