Cue the sensory-memory overload. The weight of the solid, chunky soles. The soft stretch of Lycra cradling your arch. And that permeating sound of flip, flip, flip, flip. Not to mention the screaming fights with your mother over your fashion choices... Because this was fashion. This was the Steve Madden Slinky Slide.
And it's back, boos.
The wave of '90s nostalgia was bound to dig up this old chestnut from the archives. Though, there are a few noticeable design tweaks in the new rendition: The sole is a full flatform skimming the ground (gone is that ever-so-slight faux heel), and it appears to cup the foot in (hopefully) more comfortable ways than the days when our tiny baby ankles could actually withstand a flapping cinder block for hours on end.
Get your pre-orders in soon; your overalls are waiting on them.
