I know this may not be the best time to be posting about summer sandals now that we’re almost halfway through fall, but I just couldn’t pass up on showing you these effortlessly chic “Tribute” slides by (Yves) Saint Laurent. I have proclaimed my undying love for the “Tribute” platform high heel version in the past and I do still love it dearly, but let’s be real: 5 inch heels just aren’t always a viable footwear option (long beach strolls and cobblestone walks, anyone?). Hence a classic pair of flat sandals like these timeless slides will probably get the most mileage during any summer vacation, especially if you can just easily slide in and out of them and take a quick dip in the pool without having to deal with untying your shoes first. Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? What I also ain’t got though, are the $595 in order to make these gorgeous shoes mine. Someday maybe, but not today. So in the meantime I will have to settle for a look for less option.
