* Everyone should have a great pair of slip-ons
* Slip-ons aren’t just for summer anymore
* 10 of our favorites from brands such as Vans, SeaVees, and Steve Madden
Slip-on sneakers are no longer exclusive to summer. The minimalist classic is now being tweaked to elevate fall and winter outfits as well, making it one of the few shoes that can be worn year round. To help find one that fits your needs and taste, we put together this list of 10 great slip-ons that will add sleek, modern style to any outfit.
1. Vans UA Classic Slip-on
The timeless sneaker that started it all, the Vans Classic Slip-on, gets a few upgrades. Along with a unique abstract pattern, the shoe has a new Vulcanized construction that offers a slimmed-down look and better grip with waffle tread and a gum sole.
2. Polo Ralph Lauren Kalworth
It’s hard to say if Polo Ralph Lauren’s Kalworths are a boat shoe, a loafer, or a slipper. But whatever it is, it’s stylish enough to wear around town, and comfortable enough for lazy days at home, making it a great shoe in our book.
3. SeaVees Baja Slip-on Varsity
The SeaVees Baja is another great slip-on shoe with a classic, no-frills look. Plus the suede upper, cotton canvas lining, and flexible gum outsole make this one of the most comfortable shoes you can wear almost anywhere.
4. Gold & Gravy Ripper
Gold & Gravy takes a sleek runway style and makes it not only wearable but comfortable with the Ripper slip-on. They’re made in Italy with genuine calf leather, and feature dual elastic bands that add just the right amount of flair. At just over 100 bucks, they’re five times less than their pricier fellow Italian counterparts.
5. ECCO Sport Intrinsic 2
The slip-on style lends itself especially well to athletic looks, as showcased by the ECCO Sport Intrinsic 2. They have the snug fit, flexibility, and cushioning needed for serious training, but double as everyday shoes with a trendy athleisure look.
6. Blondo Riyan Waterproof
Blondo takes the slip-on to bold new heights with the Riyan. The chrome-shoe trend has been around for awhile now, but (thankfully) doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. These are great as weekend go-tos because they’re very comfy, but have a definitively clean, put-together look. Plus, they’re waterproof.
7. Steve Madden Sly
The Sly by shoe powerhouse Steve Madden takes inspiration from athletic trends and modern, minimalist style to make a very unique shoe. It features a synthetic heel counter, a rubber sole, and a textile knit upper that looks especially cool in the olive color way pictured below.
8. SeaVees Ocean Park A-Line
The espadrille is one of summer’s hottest shoes, and SeaVees has upgraded them for fall with a thicker, embossed suede upper. The small detail makes these shoes wearable in a restaurant, as well as on the beach.
9. Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Aster
This simple, sophisticated leather slip-on by Kelsi Dagger features a pointed toe, mini stacked wedge, and lightly padded footbed for comfort. Wear them around the house, or as a breezy vacation shoe.
10. Michael Kors Felix Trainer
For a fashion forward slip-on, try the Michael Kors Felix trainer. These hyper-detailed shoes have the ability to turn a plain outfit into something special – a power usually reserved for designer shoes that are 3-4 times more expensive.
