7 slides your athleisure outfit is missing

No longer reserved for NBA players, slides are the new comfort shoe that your feet can't get enough of. Update your outfit with these seven styles.

If you’re a yoga regular you’ll understand that one of the perks of the workout is the fact that it doesn’t require shoes. As welcoming as this essential detail may be, you still need something to get to and from the studio, or maybe just to slip on and off on the days when you “just can’t even“.

Slides are the new it shoe and no longer reserved for NBA basketballers (in case you didn’t hear, it’s the workout right now). Since Rihanna’s furry style in collaboration with PUMA had the fashion world in panic mode and sold out almost immediately, we’ve selected a few stylish and, dare we say, comfortable slides that’ll also give you happy feet. Throw away those stolen Sheraton slippers, these on-trend slides should be the newest addition to your wardrobe, and (just like this athleisure attire) they’re totally acceptable in the office.
