There’s no denying that slipping into a pair of heels can transform just about any outfit. Whether it’s a casual dress, paper shorts, leggings, or even bike shorts, heels have a way of upping the ante. The problem is that heels aren’t always the most comfortable, and as such they aren’t still the first choice. Rather than reaching for your classic white trainers or closed-toe flats, we’re here to put a super-trendy silhouette on your radar: the tie-up slide sandal.

It looks like the summer of 2022 is the summer of the tie slide sandal, a slightly fancier alternative to the classic rubber slip-on shoe. Where some twist slides are just that – slides with a twist strap – others twist it a bit further and feature a full knot. Whichever iteration you put on, two things are certain: you’ll look positively fashionable. and you will be much more comfortable than if you were wearing 3 inch heels. A style of shoe that can do an entire outfit without adding height (or straining sensitive arches)? We’re here for that and think you will be too. Keep reading to discover 10 pairs of twist and knot slides that will instantly update any outfit.

10 Knotted Water Slides You Can’t Miss

light gold yaya

J/Slides Yaya Knotted Leather Slides — $128.00

Available in: Sizes 5 to 11, with half sizes.

These light gold slides are some of my favorites. Whether I’m wearing a sundress, maxi skirt or bike shorts and an oversized button up, I can count on these comfy, puffy slides for an extra glam factor. Not a gold fan? They are also sold in silver, black, beige and white. They have a lightly padded footbed, but are admittedly very flat, so if you have ultra-high arches, they might not be your best bet.

seychelles simply

Available in: Sizes 6 to 11, with half sizes.

Cue Tina Turner because these shoes are the best. One look at these faux leather knotted slides and we’re already making room in our closets. Available in nine colors, including a tantalizing tomato red, these plush flat sandals offer comfort with every step.

Vince Camuto, Palento sandals — $99.00

Available in: Sizes 5 to 10, with half sizes.

For a more relaxed and less puffy silhouette, check out Vince Camuto’s famous Palento sandal. Sold in five colors, these sandals feature an ergonomic footbed and a half-inch heel for a little extra arch support, with a touch of lift. The square toe also offers a more retro vibe.

sam edelman guy

Sam Edelman, Garson Slide Sandal — $36.00

Available in: Sizes 5 to 10, with half sizes.

Sam Edelman is never one to blend in, so when the brand launched their version of a knotted sandal, they made them extra unique with a square knot. Needless to say, shoppers are swooning over the style. One thing to note is that Garson slides are only sold in neutral colors, so if you’re hoping for a pop off color, unfortunately that’s not the case.

anita chinese laundry detergent

Chinese Laundry, Anita Casual Slide — $40.00

Available in: Sizes 5-11

On a budget? Check out these tie sandals. This pair of twisted mules has a smoother silhouette that makes it slightly more formal. They’re sold in four brilliant colors and at just $40 a pair, you might want to buy them all.

ida slide circus

Circus by Sam Edelman, Ida Strappy Slide – $55.00

Available in: Sizes 5-11, with half sizes.

Forget a knot, these mules, sold in three colors, feature a row of five. They give a fishtail braid in the form of shoes, and we can’t stop staring. As if the upper wasn’t enough to make you swoon, the square toe is lined with faux croc, giving these slides a touch of texture that makes them even more stylish.

odells inflated slide

The Odells, inflated slide – $220.00

Available in: Sizes 5-10

ICYMI: Metallic leather (and faux leather) is hot right now. The Odells tie slides are therefore nothing less than a no-brainer. Not only metallic, these shimmering slides also feature a snake print texture. (Something to keep in mind: The Odells list their shoe colors individually, so while this link only shows you the stunning magenta pair, there are 11 other colors to choose from.)

steve madden mentor flat

Steve Madde, Mentor flat sandals — $85.00

Available in: 6-10, with half sizes.

These square-toed tie-up slides in heavily textured faux leather look straight off Instagram, and not just because influencers are rocking the silhouette all over the grid. The texture itself is reminiscent of the popular two-piece crinkle fabric sets that dominate TikTok and Instagram.

serlina day slide

Available in: Sizes 6-12, in half sizes.

Designed to mimic the much more expensive Loeffler Randall Daphne Slide sandals, these beautiful Journee tie-up slides from DSW come in four colors (two of which are metallic) and feature a foam insole and a half-inch stacked heel. They’re comfortable and chic, and hard to beat.

loffler randall daphne

Loeffler Randall, Daphne Slide Sandals – $250.00

Available in: Sizes 5 to 11, in half sizes.

If you’re someone who loves a brand name, you can’t go wrong with the original Loeffler Randall Daphne slide sandals, which come in four colors including a baby blue hue. They are designed with 400 pleats for a detailed and delicate look. One thing to keep in mind is that they run small, so go up a size if you decide to add them to your summer wardrobe.
