Best slides for 2023GOAT

Remember when socks and slides had their moment in 2020? The controversial combination first gained traction when people were adapting to the new work-from-home arrangements during the lockdown due to Covid. However, the look stayed on even as the world began to reopen. Celebrities like David Beckham and Justin Bieber were seen out and about pairing cozy slides with their fits, signifying that being cozy and casual was here to stay.

Even though there are significantly fewer people working from home, slides are still prevalent and have gone from a fashion taboo to becoming a versatile and, dare we say, acceptable footwear option. No matter what style you’re after, there’s a slide that fits the bill. If being cozy is the top priority, your best bets are the Adidas Adliette, Nike Benassi and Yeezy Slide. If you prefer a more elevated one that can even be paired with a suit, you can opt for the iconic Gucci Slide, leather-clad Palm Angel slides or minimalist Balenciaga slides.

Tips for styling slides in Singapore 

– Casual and relaxed: embrace the laid-back vibe of cozy slides and pair them with relaxed clothing such as shorts.

– Socks: when going for the iconic socks and slides combo, ensure that there is ample space between the lower calf and the top of the socks, otherwise, your leg might look out of shape.

– Length of pants: long pants should be hemmed or just below your ankle to maintain a balanced proportion.

– Loose fitted pants: when wearing loose-fitting or wide-legged pants, opt for those with a chunkier sole, such as the Y-3 ones, to balance the silhouette.
