No laces, no straps, no heels. If you’re trying to embrace a relaxed attitude and easy lifestyle this summer, you deserve a simple shoe. Now, before you equate simple with basic or boring, you’ll want to take a look at the best summer slide sandals currently on the market. You slip them on and kick them off—no fuss or blisters to be found. But, they’re not just about function. The breadth of styles currently available is meant to liven your look up a bit too.

Sporty rubber Balenciaga slides are great for a post-dip hang poolside (a little water surely won’t hurt them). Then, there’s tried and true Birkenstocks, a slide-on sandal sturdy enough to wear on a short-and-sweet hike. Or, for dressier occasions, a sleek silhouette like Khaite’s buckled iteration seems primed for a weekend brunch or even the office. Ahead, find the best summer slide sandals that are fuss-free to complete your laid-back summer aesthetic. The best part: you’ll be out the door in two seconds flat.
