No one is happier than I that flip flops are out. No one ever looks good in flip-flops. If you think you do, you’re lying to yourself.  It is also super annoying to listen to people wear them, flopping around and dragging their feet. This summer, it’s all about the Men’s Summer Slides Sandals. By putting together this list, I am not endorsing sliders to walk around city streets (that is still gross). Also, do not wear sliders to the airport. No one and I mean no one wants to see you walk barefoot through the TSA check. And don’t even think about wearing them with socks. Even if Kanye and Big Sean and Virgil Abloh tell you to. They weren’t cool when everyone was wearing them with sliders in the 90s, and they indeed aren’t today.

With that said, here are our top picks for sliders to wear to THE BEACH:

[1]  Van’s Checkerboard Slide-On

Classic with a side of punk. These Van’s slides go for $30 and Blue and White, Black and White (with smaller checkers(, True Blue and White, and Checkerboard Black and White. You can find them here at vans.com.


[2] Puma x Big Sean Leadcat Sandal

These are currently sold out, but something tells us the should be restocked soon. Because we all need to look as cool as Big Sean at the beach (ignore Puma dressing these up with socks). These retail for $50. Keep checking Puma.com or find them on eBay.

[3] Adidas Originals Adilete Slides

The OG of slides. I remember having a new pair of these every summer my feet grew. The slide will set you back $45 but will last you for years to come. The come in Black/White, White/Core Black and Adi Blue/White and guess what, you can design your own starting at $50 where you can use of mixed material like fake cowhide. Find them at adidas.com.
