Up Your Street Cred With These Sliders

On one end of the footwear spectrum, we’ve got Adidas dropping NMDs in every colourway imaginable and on the other, the humble pool slider with little to no aesthetic. But that is where its appeal lies – this unpretentious slip-on is functional and versatile with a hint of casual chic.

Sliders resurged to cult status all over the high street when Rihanna rolled out her epic collaboration with Puma this season, and her statement fuzzies have since been styled by bloggers, models and fashion editors alike.


The Rihanna x Puma Fenty Fur Leadcat Slides took the sartorial world by storm and sold out within minutes worldwide. If you can’t get your hands on the superstar’s highly coveted Puma fuzzies, here are five other sliders worth ditching the sneakers for.

1. Adidas Adilette Sliders

If you’re already rocking a pair of NMDs, Stan Smiths or Superstar from the German sportswear giant, these rubber sliders will take your street cred to the next level. Black is the most versatile, and red makes a bold, sports luxe statement.

2. Loafer Sliders

If sports luxe is not your aesthetic, consider the backless loafer sliders from Robert Clergerie – essentially the more elegant version of its sporty counterpart. Smarten your look with these understated sliders and you’re good to go – they compliment shirt dresses and culottes best.

3. Birkenstock

Birks are undeniably a wardrobe staple; these comfy slip ons will make any casual outfit look more pulled together to nail that effortless, model-off-duty look.

4. Faux Fur Sliders

Rihanna is not the only one rolling out the fuzzies – jazz up your outfit with this high street alternative from Zara. The tricolour faux fur deets will work well with any neutral outfit, and the velvet-lined soles makes this pair equal parts comfy and stylish.
