Another Friday arrives, another working week is done and we’re one step closer to our favourite season – summer. One look at this new pool slide from Nike and we were transported to somewhere warm, dreaming of a chilled pool party. The appearance of a favourite summer sandal of ours practically had us getting the paddling pool out in the office and stripping off there and then.

Don’t worry – we didn’t. We managed to contain ourselves for the moment. We can’t deny though, when the Nike Benassi Pool Slide arrived and landed on our desks, we were instantly transported to an exotic, warm location where the footwear was as cool as the drinks.

Imagining ourselves dancing around a crystal clear aquamarine pool listening to some amazing music, with a fruity cocktail in hand and all our favourite people around us was quite the pick-me-up for a Friday (even if it was an exciting almost-total Eclipse day).

Last summer, the humble pool slide was the must have silhouette, and that looks set to continue this year. Whether you’re wearing them with socks (channelling your inner grandpa has never been hotter) or pristinely manicured toes with perfect nail polish, you’re sure to see plenty of this style kicking about this summer. They’re not just for those pool parties in far off destinations.

The last time we had these in stock they were gone within a matter of weeks – so make sure you don’t miss out. If we’ve set you off imagining yourself in warmer climes, check out our winter sun page here and plan your escape. The rest of the Nike Benassi Pool slides are here too – just in case the printed one wasn’t for you.
