There's no shoe I'm crushing on this season more than slides. They are pure CHICNESS. By slides I mean any shoe without backs you can slide into.
I'm in love with this pair from ASOS I've been sliding into my outfits du jour:
While hunting for pairs I realized it's a confusing definition between mules and slides as sites describe these shoes interchangeably - it was unclear. What you need to know is a mule is a shoe without a back and a slide is a shoe without a back and without the toe area (think Adidas black and white striped athletic slides). At dinner I had a stunning revelation: every slide is a mule but not every mule is a slide. It's Venn diagram level shit but what you need to know is slides are here for good.
Speaking of SLIDING, I need to give a shoutout to the 1998 Goo Goo Dolls hit Slide, one of my favorite songs from the 90s. This song runs so deep for me, I'll never get over it or the nostalgia. I love the rawness of the lyrics and the equally awesome music video, the vibes of longing for love, the girl running off the fire escape in a tulle dress, Johnny Rzeznik in guy liner...
Also the album Dizzy Up the Girl was one of my Top 3 CDs growing up and the album title is insanely brilliant. Rant over, but check it out.
And now... here's a few slides for your shopping pleasure:
