I love an embellished sandals. But this summer I am thinking pom pom slides are in order. These mules have a very boho vibe but work as a versatile option that could go with dresses, trousers and jeans.
I picked out two pairs of pom pom slides that at this point are my favourites but are also at two different price points.
At the high end are the Ashbury Stripe Iris Slide . I love the bold use of colour and the mix of large and small pom pom. They retail for $235 (so over $300 CAD). I have a pair of Figue sandals and I can say the quality is great and they are super comfy.
At the lower end of the spectrum are the Soloudos Frayed Edge Pom Pom Mule. These retail for $95 (or around $120 CAD). These have a bit more going on with the mix of tassels and pom poms but are a super cool alternative if you are looking for something more affordable. They are a bit more casual too. More beachy for day than a flat for night.
That being said for my life I would use these two flats pretty interchangeably. They would look great with shorts or cropped denim. Even skirts and day dresses.
I can see the more expensive pair working with more elevated fabrics like silk pants or even for a summer wedding that you want to switch to flats after the ceremony. The Soludos pair wouldn’t give you that much flexibility. But for most situations these are both going to work.
What do you think of pom pom sandals or flats? Is this a trend you can see yourself participating in or is it too boho for your tastes? I am all in on this one for summer!
