If you seek comfortable footwear but just can't get down with Normcore, here's a solid alternative. LA's Vince has produced a slide sandal that's just as easy to slip on as Birkenstocks, but they're free of buckles and high-fives from your dad. Although they come in a few different prints and shades, we dig this sleek mirrored leather for its retro-futuristic vibe. Wear these around the house and to run errands, or keep a pair in your car to replace those sole-crushing heels once you've had enough.
