Shopping List: Ethical Crossover Slides

This post contains affiliate links.

Last year around this time, I was on the hunt for black sandals. It ended up taking me over 6 months to find my ideal pair, The Melissa x Jason Wu studded sandals I’ve worn every other day this season. Maybe this year, I’ll find the crossover slides I want before warm days are over?

Crossover sandals are undoubtedly the sandal of the season, at least in the circles I run in. 

They’re sporty and simple, and the right shape and detail can make them suitable for a huge range of occasions. Plus, the slip-on factor means they’re the thing you’ll turn to on your way out the door on a busy morning. In the summertime, I live in slide style shoes, but my Birkenstocks are not the most elegant choice, so a pair of crossover slides might be just the thing I need, preferably in a neutral shade other than black since I already have black sandals.

Right now, I’m leaning toward the Deux Mains sandals because I like the idea of the navy color and streamlined look. But I’m interested in your suggestions and reviews.
