With every season comes a trend and S/S ’16 belongs to the pool slide. A style divider for sure but these so-called ‘ugly’ shoes really aren’t going anywhere fast. So if you like them, wear them. There’s no judging here. We love a pool slide here at schuh and we’ve got plenty to choose from, so go on, have a gander at what’s on offer.

The pool slide definitely causes mixed emotions. Y’know that kind of love/hate relationship? Or the feelings you have with a lot of the trends that are dominating the high street of late. But, we reckon sometimes you’ve just got to roll with it and the pool slide is pretty much a summer must-have. So lets slide on into the summer in style.

It might have once been known as the ‘shower shoe’ where you only wore them between sporting events and soaping up in the changing rooms but they’re now taken the fashion world by storm.

The pool slide has been seen on many high fashion celebs to runway models. The S/S ’16 trend can be linked back to the S/S ’13 campaign from Céline wearing the fur-lined Birkenstock inspired sandal, to models like Stella Tennant donning a pair while attending Paris Fashion Week and Karlie Kloss for convincing us it’s ok to wear them with socks. Yes, really, socks. A fashion statement or what? Will you be brave enough?

Fancy something ultra-chic, and a little more affordable? Choose a metallic number and you’ll be flying high this season; show the runway how it’s done.
