Trend Alert: Platform Pool Slides
May 6, 2021

Spring is here, and naturally, the ‘ugly’ sandals came along with it. For a while now, the dominating shoes in that field were Birkenstocks. While it seems that is still the case and that no shoes will ever top them, a serious contender has recently risen – plush cushy slides are in. Supermodels love a controversial fashion find, and this time it appears that find is the pool slides. The ‘ugly’ fashion trend grew more and more strong in the past year, and the pool slides definitely fit into this trend. Take Kendall Jenner, for example, who has been wearing forest-green Yeezy slides for months now. They’re cooler than the average water-repellent pool slides because of their zigzag sole. They also have a slightly more trend-forward silhouette than whatever image the word “pool slides” may evoke in your mind. Jenner usually wears her slides with socks, but they would look just as good on their own.

Two other fashionistas who have been spotted wearing this up-and-coming trend further convinced us that the platform pool sandal is taking over this season. On one occasion, at the airport, Bella Hadid wore a pair of Yeezy slides, which she styled with socks, baggy blue jeans, and a cropped green windbreaker with a shearling collar. On another sighting, Hailey Bieber opted for a different pool slide, a satin upper/leather sole sandal from The Attico that she wore with black legging and a matching sports bra.
