Slide ’em on and go! What’s not to love about slides? Especially black slides, which goes with everything. I love how these simple sandals dress down a skirt or dress or a polished office look, and add this cool nonchalance. A simple black slide channels a low-key sophistication that I personally aspire to — it’s very The Row MaryKate and Ashley Olsen. They’re also the type of sandals that make it easy to get dressed because they go with everything and can work in fancy and casual settings.
Another perk: They don’t have a heel or laces, so you can just pop your feet in and go. As a mom who is always carrying a human or two and a bazillion other things, having shoes I can just slide into is key. There are days when I don’t have time to even look what I’m putting on my feet — I’m just trying to rush out the door and grab a kid or dog before they run into the street. So it’s nice to have a shoe that I know I won’t be embarrassed by when I look down.
When it comes to sandals, I am also a big believer in investing in versatile classics that will stand the test of time. While I like to explore trends more with my clothes and accessories, I want to be able to take my shoes out each season and be excited to wear them again. I prefer to invest in quality shoes that stand the test of time, and simple black slides will do just that. They never go out of style and they’ll work with almost anything in your closet. I rounded up some street style pics to showcase my favorite ways to wear black slides, and I also picked out tons of my favorites that you can shop now.
