“Give me an opulent sandal, but make it comfortable and also perfectly on trend. And be sure it’s totally fierce.” Done and done. The Roman stud quilted slide sandal by Valentino Garavani ($970) checks so many boxes. Quilted slides are very on trend right now. I have to wonder if slides are fashion’s nod to all of us re-entering society after more than a year of quarantine. Quilted slides almost look like house slippers, but for outside. It’s like we’re getting back out there, but keeping a little piece of home with us. The 2.5-inch heel (not a flat, but a smidge of height to accentuate your leg…baby steps for our feet that haven’t worn heels in a year) and wide band vamp make this slide comfortable. The studs are a Valentino signature and add a little drama to the shoe. Slide into these sandals and re-enter society looking fabulous.
