Slide Into Summer

Erin Adamson

The simple slide, an open toe, open back shoe silhouette is shaping up to be a “Must Have” footwear wardrobe item this summer. There are versions for every occasion and lifestyle. Paris designer Erin Adamson’s high heel blue lizard slide is an example of elegant dress up simplicity.

Big chunky heels provide a little more “oomph” and appeal to a less formal lifestyle. Miu Miu’s kitty print high heel clog has a true carefree summer look, whereas Acne Studio’s sculptural block heel provides an aura of sophistication.

Plain and simply upper bands tap into the trend of clean, understated simplicity. Colours are neutral white, cognac or beige. Heels are always substantial regardless whether high or low.

5. Dolce & Gabbana 6. Louis Vuitton

Never mind the trend towards understatement! There will always be a need for a little glam! Dolce & Gabbana’s yellow lemon-printed slides fill the void with large floral stone ornaments on the vamp.  A chunky mid-heel summer dark black slide at Louis Vuitton also gets a glamorous stone embellishment treatment.

Big lugs go white! White bottoms have arrived, and the bigger, the better!

These high profile white tractor lug bottoms are an ideal summer footwear detail, and simple slides on these casual unit bottoms will be the perfect footnote for anything denim.
