Slides. The Shoe You’ll Be Wearing All Summer Long

Hey everyone, welcome back to SKLifestyle. So today I’m going to be talking about all things slides. We’re coming up to the summer now & we’ve had really nice sunny weather in London within the last few days, so I’ve put all of my boots away and the slides are out to play! Cue the white polish for the pedicure girls!


To me a summer staple for footwear is the slide sandal. There are so many different styles of slides that you can purchase at a variety of prices, from a huge selection of stores, so the slides are off limits to no one! Yessss, I’m always here for inclusivity. So here are a couple of different slides I own currently & will be rocking this summer (I’m also putting in an order for a couple of more pairs) and I will also list the prices & where you can buy them from as usual. So lets get into this slides haul!

  1. Pool/Beach Slides

Everyone needs a comfortable, waterproof slide that they can take with them to slip on and off by pool side or at the beach and these from SIMMI SHOES are my favorites. These slides are actually from the exclusive SIMMI ONE MILLION limited edition collection. I absolutely adored this whole collection and when I saw these slides in black I just knew they were for me.


They feature the SIMMI LONDON logo in white and they are soooooo comfortable. I have a couple of pairs of shoes from SIMMI London and they are the most comfortable shoes I own from their heels to their slides. The material on the insole is super soft, cushions the foot and are completely true to size. I am a UK size 4/ USA size 6 and the fit was fantastic. These slides also are available in white and a nude (more like a baby pink). I will definitely be purchasing these slides again, maybe this time in the white. You can find these Central White One Million Logo Slidersat and they retail for £22! Within the UK also offers the Buy Now Pay Later Scheme with Klarna UK.


  1. The White Slide

You can never ever go wrong with a white shoe. It doesn’t matter if it is a sneaker, a pair of heels or a slide. I love a white shoe and when I saw these slides in Primark a few years ago, I knew they were for me. I also managed to buy a black pair, both for £8 each, how affordable for such a great quality slide!


These sliders are up there with SIMMI LONDON shoes for comfort because the material also cushions your foot and are so soft. These slides are great if you’ve just moisturized your feet because your feet aren’t slipping all over the place. I also love the subtle detailing of the reptile print on the straps. Primark sandals always gets a shout out from me because of how inexpensive they are and how incredible the quality is. Like I mentioned earlier I’ve had these slides for at least 3 years now and they look and feel brand new! Unfortunately, these slides are no longer available in Primark, but they do have a wide range of sandals and slides that I’m itching to get my hands on (a white pair being one of them), so head down to your nearest Primark and check out their summer shoe collection!


  1. The Sleek Black Slide

Every woman should have an essentials wardrobe that includes a good pair of jeans, a biker jacket, a blazer and a great pair of black sandals. These sandals are an absolute must and come in handy for absolutely everything! These can be worn on vacation, a casual day at the office, running errands or even a night out! A simple pair of sleek black slides like this put the whole outfit together so effortlessly.



These slides are from Forever 21 and when they drop their summer stock girls it is straight fire! I desperately needed a new pair of black slides like this and was looking everywhere online and Forever 21 gave so many different options of this slide in so many different colours! I had to stop myself from going crazy and buying the whole stand! They feature a padded insole, which keep the foot cushioned at all times, a low heel so there’s no chance of your feet hurting or losing your balance. I always put these together with a pair of jeans and a simple tee and the outfit just works so well every single time. I also always keep a pair of these in my clutch bag if I ever go out to a club because you know when those heels start to hurt you just want some comfy shoes. These slides fit into your clutch perfectly, you won’t get in any trouble for having them in your purse, you can slip them straight on as soon as your feet start to hurt (just don’t forget about your heels!) or they come in handy for a friend who can’t handle her heels anymore. These slides come in different materials and colours on Forever 21 and right now these slides are on offer from £9 to £6.30, that’s 30% off! You can find those Faux Suede Sandals online at Forever 21 or in store, in all countries.


  1. The Print Slide

Who doesn’t love a print, especially on a shoe? I’m a huge fan of subtle reptile print and when I saw these slides on SIMMI LONDON I couldn’t resist.


These are the Zara Beige Snake Sliders and give the perfect edge to your look. I am debuting these this summer and I cannot contain my excitement! They’ll go perfectly with a light blue pair of mom jeans and a white tee. The material on the insole of these shoes are so cushioning on the foot just like the Pool Slides from SIMMI LONDON. These are easily my favorite pair of ‘dressy’ slides because of the comfort.  They mould to your feet the more you wear them, and are completely true to size. I am a UK size 4/ USA size 6 and the fit was perfect. These slides are also available in white, black, neon yellow, black & white and coral. I will definitely be purchasing these slides again, this time one pair in white and another pair in black. You can find these Zara Beige Snake Slidersat Simmi.comand they retail for £22! Within the UK Simmi.comalso offers the Buy Now Pay Later Scheme with Klarna UK. SIMMI LONDON are also currently offering a 10% discount for all students with the app UNIDAYS! Do you need any more reasons as to why you need these slides?!


  1. The Faux Fur Slide

These slides are more appropriate for the Spring or the Fall if you’re wearing them outside, purely because the faux fur can get a little hot on the feet. But these faux fur slides will always be in.


I have a couple of pairs, which I mainly wear while I’m at home around the house. They are sooooo comfortable and look really cute with leggings, jeans or a tracksuit. They come in a variety of colours at a wide range of prices. I bought these slides from Topshop and they retailed for £29.99. Unfortunately the ones pictured are not available on the Topshop website, however I did find the replica on Missguided for half the price! Missguided are offering these Black Faux Fur Fluffy Slidersin 4 different colours: Black, Grey, Mocha and Pink. I have currently got my eyes on the Mocha pair. Missguided are also offering 20% off everything right now, excluding sale items, using the code ‘grab 20’. They are also offering a 25% off student discount everything apart from sale items using Student Beans. Lastly Missguided offer the the Buy Now Pay Later Scheme with Klarna UK.

6. The Clear Slide

As you know Perspex has been one of the biggest trends since the Yeezy Season 2 collection, where Kanye introduced the most iconic shoe to date to the world. I am in love with the Perspex heel and have been since I was a young girl and I saw Kanye West ‘All Falls Down’ music video. All I could think to myself was the Cinderella shoes are real!

I recently saw these slides on the SIMMI LONDON website and as you know I am a huge fan of their shoes. These slides can be worn with any outfit you could possibly think of from edgy to a feminine look, that’s the beauty of Perspex! I can’t wait to get my hands on these slides and style them out. These slides seem to be extremely popular amongst the SIMMI LONDON customers and are currently sold out from sizes UK 3 to 6. They are also currently sold out in sizes UK 8 &9. However are currently in stock in a UK 7. The good news is you can select the size you would like to purchase and submit your email address to SIMMI LONDON to get an email for when the shoe comes back in stock! Much like the other slides I shared with you from SIMMI LONDON, these retail at £22. Within the UK Simmi.comalso offers the Buy Now Pay Later Scheme with Klarna UK. SIMMI LONDON are also currently offering a 10% discount for all students with the app UNIDAYS!

So, there you have it the shoes that you’ll be loving all summer… the slides. I hope this has helped you all and make sure to take advantage of the discounts these sites are offering to save you that coin! I look forward to seeing you all in the next post!
