There’s a particularly satisfying ease about simply slipping in and out of shoes without even having to wiggle your toes. The most comfortable slides can take you to and from the beach or in and out of temples without cramping your toes or your style.
Since the slide style is more on the casual and beachy side, we looked for top picks that could be equally at home on the shore or seated at the dinner table, with qualities like arch support, a solid build, and adjustability. Do note that we said “most comfortable” and not “most attractive.” There are tons of extremely cute slides out there, but many of them won’t pass the arch support flex test, so we prioritized support and sturdiness over aesthetics. That being said, we think you’ll still find something to suit your style.
