A furry new trend has made its way across our Instagram feeds and onto the soles of many influencers, bloggers, and the occasional adventurous friend or coworker.  Adidas introduced the style with their original Adilette Slides, but recently Rihanna’s FENTYXPUMA collection upped the slide game completely transforming the sandal from sport to sport-chic.

The Fur Slide, the first pair of slide sandals in the collection was a hit selling out shortly after its release.  They first came out in three colours: black, white and soft shell pink, followed by grey, but it didn’t end there.  Brace yourselves…now the Fur Slide is available in select range of pastels from cool blue to orchid bloom (lavender), killer pops of colour to spice up any outfit and get you summer ready.

Faux fur and the heat? You might be questioning the odd and seemingly uncomfortable pairing but these slides are designed for comfort with a satin back and cushioned midsole, perfect for lounging poolside or wandering the city streets.

Riri’s Fur Slide retails for $90 USD, which isn’t too bad for a collab collection with a fashion icon, but it’s a little steep for the average consumer.  Looking to get this bold trend on a budget? You’re in luck! Many retailers offer similar dupes, from Forever 21 to Winners, where you’re bound to find something in store.  My personal favourite are the Steve Madden Softey Sandals! At a $40 price point they don’t disappoint!
