And speaking of cool strappy slides, this extra-comfortable style from Birkenstocks is also near the top of our list.
7. Melissa BeachsNext Slip On Sandal, $75

8. Vans Range Slide Sandal, $34.99
Whether you’re shopping for sneakers or slides, you just can’t go wrong with Vans. There’s a classic black-and-white pattern out there too, but it’s the rainbow checkers that are stealing our hearts.
