As the world begins to open its doors again and the intrepid few creep out of their private spaces and into the light again, we can’t stop thinking about the next time we’ll be poolside. Unfortunately, while the pool may be a sanctuary for many, it’s not famed for its style.

Excluding the 1960s, this arena has mostly been uninspired and downright ugly sartorially speaking. Luckily, though, summer 2020 brings with it a whole host of poolside footwear options, allowing your shallow-end style to be better than ever.

Slides have long been the footwear of choice when treading the slippy perimeter of a swimming pool. This is down to their comfort, ease, and durability. Picking a pair of slides that actually looked good, however, has not been such an easy job. But with selections from Nike, adidas, and even luxury names like Loewe, and Maison Margiela, you’re sure to be stepping stylishly and securely on your next trip to the swimmer.
