If you’re fortunate enough to work from home, you might also be unfortunate enough to learn what happens to your feet when you stop wearing shoes on hard floors—collapsed arches much? So, shoes it is! But, if your pandemic-phobia has led you to designate separate indoor and outdoor shoes, easy access is key. Who wants to spend time swapping shoes and tying laces every time you need to take the trash out? Here, 12 backless summer shoes that will make your WFH situation much more stylish.
12 Backless Summer Shoes That Are Easy to Slip On & Take Off
1. Mule In Black Glaze By Zou Xou
Designer Katherine Theobalds founded Zou Xou to practice slow fashion—her kicks are produced in small quantities with responsible manufacturing practices. The result? A range of sandals, flats and heels that are “well-made, unfussy and minimal.” We’re a fan of these mules because they’re polished and professional enough to wear when you (eventually) return to the office.

2. Cla By Loza Maléombho
These handmade slides from Loza Maléombho also come in a transparent PVC version. Fear not: the red fringe is the showstopper on both versions.

3. Greg Shoe In Cow By Brother Vellies
Getting a ‘90s flashback? These slip-ons are reminiscent of your beloved Birkenstock clogs but, dare we say, much more special. Just look at that Western-style buckle. Plus, they’re handmade with cow hair, an animal byproduct. You can read more about Brother Vellies' sustainability model here.
11. Kiki Tassel Espadrille Mule By Soludos
