11 Suede Slide Sandals To Freshen Up Your Spring Shoe Game — PHOTOS
It may only be April, but my mind is already on warmer days, thanks to this beautiful weather we've been experiencing as of late. More sunlight means showing off more leg, shoulders, and most importantly: Toes. Enter suede slides, the one piece of eye candy footwear you'll be needing this spring. And while strappy, edgy sandals have been all the rage in the past, this spring, it's all about minimalism.
While I've had an affinity for shoes for quite some time now (just ask my closest friends about my terrible shoe shopping habit), I hadn't experienced love at first sight quite like when I saw the Mansur Gavriel sude mules in real life. Now, mules and clogs have been around for quite some time now, but not like this. The suede slip is a new silhouette of it's own: Block heel, simple strap, and a lovely, soft texture of it's own.
And with the trend of grandma heels sweeping the style world, it only seems appropriate that the suede slip is the shoe for spring and summer. They're super elegant and playful at the same time, meaning you can just as easily throw them on for a daytime picnic or pair them with your favorite trousers for a special dinner or date night out. Essentially, they're the most versatile shoe in your wardrobe for spring.
With colors ranging from pastel pink, to black, or bright red, there's so many choices out there. Including heel height and strap width. But they all have one thing in common: They're going to be your friends' envy. Take a look at some of my favorites to slip into (see what I did there?)
1. The Splurge

These are the aforementioned beauties. Yes, they are a splurge, so if it's within your budget, I'm jealous of you. For those of you (me) who can't quite make the splurge, consider these your ultimate inspo.
