This is the year of the pool slide.
There's something really badass about pool slides. And I'm talking about the shoe version, not an actual slide into a pool which needs no validation for being totally badass. I think the most badass thing about wearing pool slides is that you could actually be going to a pool. Pool slides are like the unofficial uniform of a pool party in the way a tux is actually a very official uniform for something fancy schmancy. They're comfortable. They're effortless. They can get wet af and it doesn't matter. Basically everything you want your summer to be. So if you're ever going to jump on this trend, this is the year to do it. Why this year? Cause the trend is still building enough that you look in-the-know and yet it's starting to get so big that your options are hella good. Peep our picks from the OG of pool slides, Adidas, below.
