From the simple rubber slip-on favoured by grandpas in socks the world-over into the surprisingly chic, fur-trimmed, crystal-encrusted or metallic creations, the world’s most celebrated designers are making a splash with the pool slide shape.

Characterised by a single strap across the toe and a chunky sole, they are the shoe of choice for the world’s most prolific fashionistas. (Think: Phoebe Philo, Binx Walton, Gigi Hadid and Rihanna.)

A little bit playful, a little bit practical, a little bit jolie-laide (a French term meaning both pretty and ugly at the same time) these 10 pool slides will have you racing to join the swim team before the summer is out.
