15 Cute Slides To Wear This Summer Because Rihanna Says They're Super Cool

Athleisure ain't going anywhere soon, so if you haven't joined the bandwagon yet, I encourage you to do so. How amazing is it that dressing comfortable is actually super trendy right now? Which leads me to summer slides, which my feet are going to live in until September. Maybe October and November if I try to layer them with socks. The point is this: I'm totally taking advantage of the fact that I can dress pretty casually and comfortably and still look dope as hell.

In case you missed it: Literal badass angel Rihanna released her own slides with Puma, and they're pretty much the coolest thing since Rihanna herself. In black, pink, and white, these slides are the epitome of this summer's aesthetic: Laid back but cool. And I'm never going to complain about putting on a pair of ultra-comfy shoes. While I've dreamt of countless outfits to wear with said beauties, they're not exactly easy to cop. Like any cult-favorite (kind of like Ri's creepers with Puma, or the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, or Kylie's lip kits), I imagine they'll be running out. Quickly.

I'm totally in love with the fur on these, which give me major '90s and Cher Horowitz vibes. Faux fur seems to be making a major comeback, especially in fun colors like pink. Remember Maisie Williams' faux fur white heels at the 2015 Emmys? I certainly do. Click through ASOS' shoe selection, and you'll see endless pages of shoes with fur details. Needless to say, it's one of this season's biggest trends.

If you're lucky enough to cop a pair of RiRi's slides, bless you. If you're not so lucky, check out some of these alternative summer slides that are super comfy and cool, too.
