Slides, once footwear for loafing around the house and quick trips to the bodega, have become some of the most versatile shoes. You can effortlessly elevate a look with the right pair — like this leather pair from J.Crew. Their decidedly unfussy silhouette and fancy-looking padded material will make you feel like you’re vacationing on an Italian coastline while lounging on a crowded beach at Rockaway. They’re even nice enough to wear to brunch or date nights in a pinch. Best of all, they won’t break the bank. During J.Crew’s end-of-season sale, the shoes are an extra 70 percent off of their already discounted price with code BIGGERSALE. That brings them down from $88 to just $37. You can snag them in four shades, including the aptly named “rich caramel,” for nearly any summer occasion.
