The 9 Most Comfortable Slides, According To Reviewers

Everyone needs a go-to pair of comfortable shoes in their closet, and slides are a versatile option to have on hand when warm weather hits. Most styles can be worn indoors or outdoors, and they're a must-have for pool season. While cloud slides have become increasingly popular (thanks to thick soles that make them padded and soft under the foot) there's more out there than just the thick, EVA options. We've read and researched the most comfortable slides on the market, according to reviewers.

Each shoe on our list has over 10,000 reviews and at least a 4-star rating on Amazon. From name-brand picks like Puma and Adidas to podiatrist-approved slides from Oofos, there's something here for every budget, need, and foot size. The best part? They're also budget-friendly, with the priciest pick coming in under $60.

Read on for our top picks, whether you're looking for a pair for your summer beach days or need a good pair of recovery sandals post-workout.

The Bronax slides have over 48,000 reviews on Amazon, with many reviewers stating they've purchased them in multiple colors. The shoes are easy to clean if you like to wear them out of the house, and the thick foam sole makes them extra squishy and comfortable to put on after a long day on your feet.

They're also lightweight and easy to pack if you're traveling—just don't leave them in the sun for too long; the heat can cause the material to shrink.

Coming in under $20, reviewers love these slides because of their durability, quick-drying nature, and overall comfort. Reviewers also note the slides have a solid grip, so if you do choose to wear them poolside or in the shower, you shouldn't feel like you're slipping all over the place.

The slides work both indoors and outdoors and were designed as shower slippers. They weigh less than half a pound, so you can toss them in your bag for travel without adding any bulk.

Adidas is a sneaker brand we know and love (the Adilette slide has been around since the 1970s!). They were originally designed as a shower slide, with a quick-drying liner and an easy on/off structure. Whether you wear them for gym/public showers or not, these are ideal slides for use outdoors at the pool, beach, and beyond.

The slides have a contoured footbed and feature Adidas's Cloudfoam for comfortable wear while walking around.

Lounge around the house in these fuzzy slides that have a memory foam sole and a stylish faux fur strap. The non-slip rubber sole gives them good grip on the ground, but we'd still recommend wearing them indoors only since they're harder to clean than their EVA counterparts.

The brand (as well as reviewers) recommends sizing up if you're between sizes. They're also listed as machine washable in case they get dirty.

When we researched the best cloud slides and spoke to Dr. Mohammad Rimawi, DPM, a board-certified podiatrist and reconstructive foot surgeon, he said he recommends these since “They’re lightweight, they provide good support in the arch and the heel, and they don’t cram the toes inside.”

The shoes are durable, comfortable, and built to withstand both indoor and outdoor activity, so you can be sure to get your money's worth.

Adjust the width of these slides with ease thanks to the buckle straps. The water-resistant shoes have a thick, soft EVA sole that makes them a great pair indoors or outdoors.

Reviewers love the cloud-like feel and say the contoured footbed is supportive. They also note you'll want to size up for these shoes, as they tend to run small.

Puma's slides feature a synthetic leather upper that's durable for wear indoors or outdoors and an EVA outsole that's comfortable and quick-drying. The shoes have a light molded footbed to make them comfortable, but reviewers note the strap is a bit tighter than other brands.

These slides will likely need to be broken in a bit before they're ultra-comfy, but you can wear them just about anywhere.

While you might immediately think of the clog style when you hear Crocs, these slides feature the same comfortable material but in an easy-to-slip-on-and-off design. The slides have holes for ventilation but don't have a heel strap.

The brand recommends handwashing them, as excess heat (like that of a dishwasher or dryer) can warp or shrink the EVA shoes. Some reviewers note it's better to size up.

These shoes have a hard rubber outsole so they can be worn indoors or outdoors. They also have a moisture-wicking lining to keep your feet comfortable and dry.

The slides are machine washable, with many reviewers noting they've washed the shoes a handful of times and not had any issues with warping or stretching.

To select the most comfortable slides, we turned to Amazon reviews. Each slide on this list has over 10,000 reviews on Amazon and a minimum of 4 stars in the product's overall rating. We read through countless reviews to find what reviewers loved and disliked most about each product, culminating in this list of the nine most comfortable slides.

Slides can be worn indoors and outdoors, so long as they have a hard rubber sole. You wouldn't want to wear your soft bottom slippers on hard concrete since your foot is not protected against the hard surface. All of the slides on this list have a hard outer sole, but you'll want to consider how the slides can be cleaned as well. If the slides are easy to clean and offer protection from rough surfaces outside, you can easily run errands, head to the beach, or take the dog for a walk in them.

Each pair of slides will have their own cleaning instructions, but for EVA slides you'll want to use warm dish soap and a sponge to clean off dirt, scuffs, or stains. Let the slides air dry out of the sun, as hot temperatures can cause the shoes to shrink or warp. Brands will often list if shoes are machine washable as well, with instructions on what cycle to use when washing. Be sure to check your specific pair's instructions before cleaning.
