What are slider shoes?

Stuck in a rut with your childrenswear? Deciding what trends will suit the little ones come the new season? You’re not alone, and whilst the weather doesn’t feel like it right now, the summer months will be here before we know it. So, it’s a great time to start getting those wish lists ready!
One of the top footwear trends of last year was sliders (sometimes even with sandals – fashion has well and truly done a 360!), and they don’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon. Not just great for adults, they’re versatile, comfy, and practical for kids too, whilst staying on-trend with the latest colours and designs.
So, if you’re looking for the perfect designer slider for your little one, then you’ve come to the right place.

What are they?

Think Roman chic – this style can be traced as far back as the Romans, Greeks and even Egyptians thanks to their simple, easy-to-wear style. You’ll probably remember one of the first big brands to take on this design was in fact Birkenstock.
Sliders are basically an up-to-date version of flip flops, but comfier, and usually a lot more practical for kids, who tend to be fussy about details such as toe posts. But just because they’re practical it doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style – there are loads of designer options for both boys and girls.

Designer sliders

Designer sliders are hot property, and loads of designers are relishing in what they can do with them for the little ones, including Gucci. But despite what you may think, Gucci shoes for kids don’t have to be bling-bling 24/7. They can be great to look at, but perfect for the kids to run around in, too. Take kids Gucci trainers for example, just a simple strip of classic branding along the sides makes them instantly-recognisable, but not over the top.
Thanks to the small amount of design area sliders offer compared to shoes such as trainers, the same applies here, so you can match the sliders to their chosen outfit without feeling too OTT.

Girls sliders

Girls shoes are always a shopping-lovers’ heaven. Especially those who are looking for Gucci sliders.
Think bright, eye-catching shades of yellow and hot pink, paired with just the simplest of design details to make these shoes perfect for your mini me. Whether they’re spinning around in the garden (or kitchen, come rain!) practicing their latest dance moves, or out hitting the shops with you for some special one-on-one time, your little lady will be nothing but impressed with the latest sliders in our collection.

Boys sliders

The range of sliders for boys is also bigger than you think.
Gucci slides kids love tend to be the ones which they can move about freely and feel comfy in, but ones which you think still look cool whilst they’re hitting the playground. You can’t compromise on price, either. As the little guys tend to be rougher when it comes to playtime (or kicking a ball around with their mates), you’ll need any shoes you put on their feet to be made of the best materials to stand the test of time. This is where a pair of designer sliders will come in handy – they’ll last for years on end, too!


If Gucci is your brand, forget going to your nearest Gucci kids outlet, simply shop the range we have available.
