Move aside flip flops, a new trend has taken over for the summer and we are not going back. Slides have made their way to the forefront of fashion, even brands such as Givenchy and Gucci have made slides for their high end audiences. Of course, we can thank the Rihanna for the new popular of furry slides which started in her own Fenty Puma collection.
Although, we can not give Rihanna credit for the popularizing of slides. Athletes have long been wearing slides, as Nike and Adidas was dishing them out for those pre and post game footwear. Slides have been popular among guys but the new trend is getting girls to ditch their flip flops and into the new popular sandals. Like previously mentioned, Rihanna’s Fenty slides came in an iconic pink color with the signature fur look, making it an instant hit which sold out just as fast as it was released. Since then, more than a dozen other brands realized the female audience’s new interest in slides, and even reached retailers such as Urban Outfitters and Vans.
