Summer has finally arrived, which means it’s time to ditch our trusted winter shoes for something a little more breathable.

While some may want to keep their trainers at the ready for walks on a Sunday afternoon, others are looking for a footwear staple to see them through the warmer months.

There is one shoe in particular that is on our radar - the Leather Flat Open Toe Sliders from Marks and Spencer.

Why we rate it

M&S’ Leather Flat Open Toe Sliders have received rave reviews from customers, and it is no surprise.

The stylish sandals are made from soft leather and also boast other comfort-boosting features, such as a slightly raised heel, a padded cross strap detail and a cushioned base, with Insolia Flex technology, which is meant to allow natural flexing of the foot as you walk or run.

The mules come in sizes 3 to 8, as well as half sizes, and cost just £35.

We love that they come in four different colourways; classic black, tan, navy blue and metallic gold, for those who want to add that extra glamorous touch to their look.

What the reviews say

Customers have gone head over heels for the affordable sliders, with some praising them for providing “all day comfort”.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • “As comfortable as slippers! These sliders are SO comfortable... I bought them in black and, just as on the website, they look much more expensive than the on-sale (or usual) price. Very happy with this, admittedly, impulse ‘lockdown’ purchase!”

  • “Favourite summer sandals. Just what I had been looking for. Perfect fit for me and very comfortable. Choice of colours, I bought a navy pair and a black pair.”

  • “I haven’t taken these off since I received them! Love them and very comfortable.”

    Sizing note: Some customers suggest going up a half or full size:

  • “On previous experience of this type of sandal, bought a half size bigger. They were a little snug on first wearing but now after three days they are a perfect fit. Just thinking about getting another pair.”

  • “After reading other reviews I went up 1/2 a size and they are perfect. I have average width feet and the fit is great. I bought both the tan and gold.”
