The Best Slides Of The Season
In the words of DJ Calvin Harris, "Do you slide on all your nights like this? Do you try on all your nights like this? (I might) Put some spotlight on the slide, whatever comes, comes through clear..."
Alright, he may not be talking about footwear per se, but the slides that have pretty-fied our feet for the season really do deserve to be put in the spotlight!
Slides have easily become our favorite ultra-versatile and comfy shoe of the year. While they're a winning choice for lazy days when you want to look casual yet put together, a number of styles have also managed to make it to our professional wardrobes and dressy outfits. Regardless of the occasion, they afford your feet the comfort they deserve, while being a foolproof way for you to make a style statement.
From pointy to mule-inspired, velvet to embroidered, here are our top picks for the best slides of the season.
Described as the shoes that every Filipina fashionista wants, these slides by homegrown designer Zarah Juan reflect Filipino style so well: they're bright and cheerful at first glance, yet hold an air of stylishness upon closer investigation. They make you proud to be walking around in a proudly Filipino-made product.

Cole Haan has long mastered the art of comfortable leather shoes, and this pointy gold slide sure is one of them. It's a modern take on the mule's classic silhouette, while its metallic finish extends to the heel to make a truly festive addition to any holiday outfit.
The name of the game for this slide is attention to detail. Embroidered brocade florals offer a pop to an outfit of solid colors. Don't take attention away from it; this shoe is beautiful enough to be the star of an outfit.
Rock and roll is here to stay. This slide is a feminine translation of an otherwise edgy and tough design. With its self-assured combination of red and black patent leather and lots of round silver studs, this is the slide for the lady you really shouldn't — and don't want to — mess with.
Crocodile leather is a classic way to dress up an office outfit. This cream tone is a different take on the fabulous material that we usually see in darker tones, so it's truly a unique find! Partner this with trousers, and you're more than ready to face the day's meetings and presentations.
For the women in love with bold prints and patterns, this is the slide that was made for you. The collision of two prints topped off with large tassels makes us picture sitting rooms of old when European aristocrats lounged around with their velvet bathrobes, sipping on their choice of tea by the crackling fireplace as snow covered the world outside. You're sure to look as sophisticated as them in this with this pair of slides.
Art has long been making its way into fashion. See how embosed floral detailing set against a rich velvet background make this shoe look more like a painting than footwear. Then again, when it comes to fashion, who says you can't roll both things to create one beautiful piece?
Be a queen bee and not a wannabe with these gray velvet mules accessorized with a beaded bee. Suggested for the fashion-forward, it's a scene-stealer that'll get everyone around you buzzing.
Spring and summer can't come any sooner with this salmon slide. With its unusual color that's not quite pink nor orange, this slide will brighten up any outfit — and turn heads however and wherever you wear them.

Other designers took inspiration from this, so every time you slip your feet into this pair, know that you'll be walking around in one of fashion's unforgettable styles.
