Pool slides were arguably the most divisive shoe trend in 2016, as these rubbery, sporty sandals became the latest "ugly" shoe to go mainstream. While you might be certain that you will never ever wear a pair of sporty branded sliders (often paired with an obligatory white sports sock too), 2017's take on the idea might make you change your mind about them altogether.
This season, they've had a complete makeover, with the likes of Balenciaga, Topshop, No.21 and more creating satin sliders with bows on the toes. This sandal is no longer limited to ugly ridged rubber soles and sports brand logos; slides 2.0 are adorned with feathers, embellishments and pretty touches. Comfort + decoration = the dream footwear combination, right?

These are the perfect mix of sporty and luxe, with the white rubber ridged sole and dusty pink satin ruffles across the toe.
