Looking to upgrade your everyday Slides and you landed on these logo slides from Chloe that look uber chic and come in so many fun colors that you tempted to spend your money.
But you are not sure if its a wise decision to spend that much money on a pair of shoes that you can only wear to the beach, then check out my complete review of the pair where I am comparing it with other big designer brands also sharing my thought after wearing for 3 years now.
I also wanted to share some places where you can save a few dollars.
Should You Spend Money On a Designer Slide?
This is a question I honestly like to ask myself when I am making any substantial fashion purchase and not just designer ones. But if you want to be mindful about your designer shopping then I have a dedicated post for it.
Your Personal Taste
If you love wearing summer outfits and love pairing them with summer footwear and frequently wear slides or open toe sandals a lot, then you can definitely shop for something more expensive that will last you for more than just one year.
For me, sandals are mandatory for summer. I completely pack away my boots when the weather gets a bit warm and start wearing all my summer sandals. This is just my style, so when I looked at the Chloe slides, I decided to upgrade my existing slides and have never looked back.
Your Personal Style
This is a bit different that what your taste are. Our choices and tastes change all the time, but for our day to day lives, we tend to have some go to styles, if your go to styles is always wearing sneakers, then you might not enjoy buying something super expensive and it will actually take you years before you can get your money’s worth.
My style is effortless chic, and I always end up with a feminine pair of footwear, so it completely made sense to upgrade to the Chloe woody slides.

Designer Price Comparison
Whenever, I want to buy any designer goods, I like to do a price comparison to check which brand is the most cost effective to buy and you SHOULD TOTALLY DO THIS.
So, when I bought the Chloe woody slides, I compared them with some top brands that had great slides. But since we are talking about it right now, let’s compare it with the current designer slides.
These were the only canvas slides I could find and you can clearly see the price difference and design difference. The Gucci one does no even look like a canvas slide.
Make & Style
The Chloe Woody Slides soles are 100% leather and and looks really sturdy in terms of design. The slides have a very slight heel, but not a lot that will make you feel uncomfortable in the long run walking all day.
The straps are 100% cotton and look really comfortable and sleek. I was pleasantly surprised by Chloe’s clean design of these slides. Usually as a bohemian brand they have more intricate details on most of their footwear as well, but this one is a very simple and clean design with the Chloe logo embedded on the canvas.
This is mot an embroidery but probably embossed, because the fabric itself is very lightweight and there are no weird bump.
Design Feel For Me
Because of the clean design, the footwear is easy to wear and maintain as well. I have had no issues so far in terms of any fabric pulling or anything. And I have taken it to places in the past 2 and 1/2 years.
Since the design is really simple, and because I chose the white canvas, I literally wear them with anything and everything. It goes with all my summer outfits, beach looks, bikinis. But, I also think if I had bought the black one, it would also be the same for me.
Hands down the best make of any designer pair. I have worn other designer footwear whose soles have worn down with more and more wear, but these slides still look new to me even after wearing the for more than 2 years.
And that is why they are my most favorite pair.
I have never gotten them fully wet, but I have walked in the after stepping out from the ocean or a pool, but the leather has had no problem.
There are marks of my feet, but overall the leather looks fantastic and the sole has barely worn out.
And the Canvas has also stayed intact without any fading in the sun.
I have walked miles in them, biked as wells for me they are really comfortable. But if you have a wider feet, I would recommend wearing them down before you can walk in them for longer time since the edge of the canvas may bite.
I am a size 7.5 US for sandals and 8 for boots, but I picked EU 38 for the slides and have no problem at all. I believe at the time Chloe was not manufacturing half sizes, but I think that has changed now. So, if you feel you are on the smaller spectrum or on a narrow side you should opt for 37.5 EU.
If you have wider feet and feel uncomfortable because of the canvas strap, I would recommend going a size up. But the straps loosen up a bit as you wear them. Mine have gotten really comfortable now after wearing them so much. I think this is the case with most leather footwear.
If you like statement style and laidback look, then these slides will be something you will literally wear everyday till it is too cold to wear them. That is what I do. But if you are someone who does not like to wear the same footwear always, then probably going for something more affordable should be a better option.
I bought them because I value comfort and durability in my shoes as I do not shop for footwear that often. I have got sensitive feet that are prone to blisters and buying quality shoes that don’t cause it is always my top priority and in the years that I have worn these, I have never had any of those problems, and I think that is why finding the right size is really key.
I have been wearing these logo slides for about 3 years now and I cannot tell you how comfortable I have gotten with them. Even after 3 years, they look great and are in great condition to wear with all my nicer clothes. The leather softens up in years and feels more and more comfortable to wear.
Honestly, if you have to be really delicate with any footwear, my suggestion is not buy them in the first place. The only thing I usually do after I am done wearing them, is to wipe the with a dry cloth and put them in the bag that it comes with to pack it away. I also do the same when I am traveling, which is a good way to keep your shoes packed compactly.
If these are your first designer slides, I recommend buying the white one which will be really versatile in any wardrobe.
My next choice of color would be the black one again because of the versatility of the piece.
If you are really unsure how to style them with your everyday outfits to get the most wear out of them, then check out my post below where I share some everyday outfits.
Best Places To Shop
If you are looking to save some money, I would recommend getting them from online stores outside of US where you can save some dollars on them. Some of my favorite stores to shop are Farfetch and MyTheresa, where you can find a lot more varieties of these slides.
But if you are looking to shop in US then Bloomingdales is a great place to shop. They provide 2 day shipping with Shoprunner. Though you might not find all of your color choices there. If you really want to get more choices you should check Bergdorf Goodman which has a lot of color choices and you can get 15% off if you are a first time customer. Isn’t that amazing!
They have actually come up with some new designs that I am already eying to add to my collection ad sharing them below.
If you already own a pair, I would love to know what are your thoughts on them and which color you bought?
