STEP INTO COMFORT: THE RISE OF RUBBER SLIDES

Step into the epitome of laid-back chic with the rising trend of rubber slides. What once graced poolside lounges has now emerged as a must-have, effortlessly blending comfort with an undeniable cool factor. These slip-on wonders have transcended their humble beginnings, evolving into a fusion of functionality and flair. In recent years, more brands are adapting to the trend by offering their own take with modern aesthetics.

Join us as we dive into the unique narratives spun by our top selection of these warm-weather staples as they redefine what it means to stride in style.

1. adidas Adilette 22

If you are looking for some new slides to rock, you have to put the Adilette 22 into consideration! adidas is no stranger to sliders, and it is very likely you have got a pair of its latest three-striped slip-ons either in Cloud White or Core Black stowed on your shoe rack. From bodega runs to poolside chills, they are a staple of mammoth proportions. The Adilette 22 is a step up from the traditional adidas Adilette. Unlike the aforementioned models, the most recent ones took inspiration from Ye’s Yeezy slides that have seen on the feet of many A-list celebrities.

Moreover, the adidas Adilette slides have a rich history dating back to the 1960s. Originally designed for athletes as a shower shoe, they quickly gained popularity beyond the sports world and became a casual and fashion staple. Over the years, they have evolved in terms of designs and materials. Inspired by human expeditions to Mars and 3D topography, the German sportwear giant had skillfully crafted the Adilette 22 slides with the planet in mind, defying gravity in a fresh new organic silhouette.

This eye-catching product by adidas comes in a mélange of colorways for both men and women to choose from and it can be paired with any look! Furthermore, it is fabricated with natural and renewable materials as part of their journey to consciously help end plastic waste. As a result, it delivers a soft warm feel thanks to its contoured footbed and its rubber outsole that ensures maximum comfort, whether you’re hitting the showers or the streets. Additionally, the distinctive slides feature EVA cushioning that seamlessly incorporates 25% plant-based material derived from sugarcane. Evoking the elegance of a fashionable topographic map and enriched with contemporary minimalistic branding, they also showcase a textured aesthetic that gracefully combines wavy patterns with distorted ripples and vertical groove designs.

2. Nike Calm Mules

In the vast expanse of Nike‘s innovative silhouettes, the brand consistently showcases its prowess by releasing forward-thinking designs that tap into contemporary trends. Fresh from the success of its Calm Slides, the Oregon-based sportswear giant follows that up with the Calm Mules.

This rendition of the Calm silhouette features the same material composition as its predecessor. These include the soft, quick drying EVA foam upper which attaches directly to the midsole, full-length ribbed rubber outsole, and textured footbed for grip support. Other than that, the Nike Calm Mule comes with a sleeker, closed toe design and a semi open heel. Around the back, you’ll find a canvas pull tab that is fastened with Velcro. The strap offers versatility from a functional standpoint. Best of all, it also easily lets you switch into using this footwear as sliders.

This design is then finished off with the iconic swoosh debossed on the side and labels are also on the footbed and the lugs. For breathability, the medial side has a large opening for ventilation. Available for men’s and women’s, the latest variation comes in four neutral colourways, including Oil Green, Black, Light Smoke Grey and Hemp.
