Slide Guide

Slide Guide

This summer we are bringing back the birkis and I am so glad I never gave in to my husband telling me to get rid of mine because I never wore them, slides are this summer's it shoe, forget your Havianas it is all about the slip on.

So what is a slide?  A slide is a term that refers to a shoe that is backless and open-toed, they can be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover nearly the entire foot from ankle to toe, or may have only one or two narrow straps. The term is descriptive in that this shoe is easy to 'slide' on and off the foot when the wearer wants to do so.

You just have to walk into any shoe store and you will find a pair of  slides these days, my personal favourite at the moment at the Seed double strap black slides and the rose gold Birkenstocks.  

My slide guide is a guide to the more expensive and longer lasting pairs on offer but to follow up this guide I will be doing a budget slide guide on where to get your lookalikes at a fraction of the price of these beauties. 

So did you hold on to your Birkenstocks and will you be wearing them again this summer?

  1. I couldn't live without my Birkis. I have them in Pearly Blush pink, metallic silver, patent orange, and multi-coloured. I adore them. Yes expensive, but they last for EVA. Mimi xxx
