Hanging out poolside sounds wonderful right now. Perhaps you’d be lounging back on a chair, sipping a drink out of a coconut, looking stunning in a new swimsuit and flowy cover-up. But what would be on your feet?
We’ve been wearing simple flip flops to the pool our whole lives, but this year, we’re stepping it up. We’re still keeping things comfy and light for summer — maybe even comfier and lighter — but we’re adding an extra dose of style as well. We’ve picked out 11 pool shoes from Amazon below we think you’ll love as much as we do!
1. These Pillow-Soft Slides
These bestsellers might be the trendiest summer shoes of 2021 thanks to their pillow-soft construction, waterproof material and bottom tread to keep you from sliding around poolside. They’re majorly breathable too!
2. These Sleek Sandals
If you prefer something a little sleeker with a lower profile, we love these slides. The single strap has a leather look to it, and while the sole is thin, there is padding — plus an ever-so-slight wedge lift in the heel!
Get the Volcom Simple Synthetic Leather Strap Slide Sandal starting at just $27 at Amazon! Please note, prices are accurate at the date of publication, July 27, 2021, but are subject to change.
3. These Iconic Clogs
Crocs have been a polarizing pick in the past, but they’re having a major fashion moment right now, so now’s your time to try a pair (or maybe your fifth pair). They’re so lightweight and breathable and designed to shed water quickly in case you get splashed!
4. These Floating Boat Shoes
One of Sperry’s latest innovations, these Float shoes are making a name for themselves. They’re designed to literally float in water (meaning they’re also totally waterproof)!
5. These Wedge Heels
If you love the classic thong-style flip flops but are looking for an upgrade, these wedges are the way to go. They have a rubber, non-slip sole and an ultra-comfy padded footbed!
6. These Buckle Sandals
Love the Birkenstock look but hoping for a more affordable price? These EVA sandals are the way to go. Just look how popular they are with Amazon reviewers!
7. These Hiking Sandals
These strappy sandals are great for summer adventurers, but they’re also tough and water-friendly, making them great for a day spent by the pool!
8. These Jelly Slides
We’ll always have a soft spot for jelly sandals, especially when they’re this cute. These frosty, sheer shoes are made with low-maintenance material that’s so easy to clean and perfect for hanging out either at the local pool or at a fancy resort!
9. These Quick-Dry Sneakers
These sneakers are quick to dry and include drainage holes in case they get wet. They also have super high-traction rubber on the bottom and come in the cutest colors!
10. These Air-Cushion Slides
These pool sandals have an air cushion to make it feel like you’re standing on clouds. They’re also majorly flexible for all-day comfort, and the footbed is actually designed to massage your feet while you walk!
11. These Platform Sandals
These bejeweled slides are definitely going to stand out at the pool, and the shiny platform midsole will have you standing tall — supermodel status!
