Looking for a cute sustainable shoe, that’s also super comfortable? This Girlfriend Collective ReSlides review shares the reasons why I’ve been wearing these specific slides non-stop!
Girlfriend Collective ReSlides
These Girlfriend Collective ReSlides have been on my feet pretty much all Summer since I got them. They’ve made quite a few appearances on my IG stories (find me on IG here) & every time I post about them, I get a bunch of questions asking me about the brand, if they’re comfortable, etc. So I wanted to do Girlfriend Collective slide review & share why I’m obsessed with these sandals because not only are they so cute, but they’re also fully recycled & recyclable!
If you’re an avid reader of my blog, I’m sure you know the quality of brands I share & partner with. I love supporting & sharing companies who are doing good work for both the planet & for people of course. Be sure to check out this list of B Corps that I love! While Girlfriend Collective isn’t a certified B Corp, they are a brand with a strong sustainability initiative, which I always appreciate! By the way, this post is NOT sponsored- just sharing because I genuinely love these slides.
Girlfriend Collective is primarily an activewear brand with a focus on sustainability. Their packaging is 100% recycled & recyclable which is great. And their activewear clothes are made from recycled materials like post-consumer water bottles, fishing nets, fabric scraps, & other waste. You can even find a breakdown of product materials on the individual product pages. Although I haven’t yet tried any clothing items from Girlfriend Collective, I do love how transparent they are when it comes to their materials.
From the Girlfriend Collective About page…
“Did you know almost all synthetic activewear is made from plastic? We just make ours with materials that would otherwise clog landfills and pollute the earth. It all starts with post-consumer water bottles that have their labels removed, are crushed into billions of minuscule chips, and then washed until they’re sparkling clean.”
As someone who is personally trying to become more mindful about the clothing I purchase, this innovation is incredibly inspiring to hear & definitely makes you feel good about supporting & shopping their products. I’ll definitely be trying their activewear too!
Girlfriend Collective ReSlides Review
Okay – now on to why you’re here! You want to hear about the Girlfriend Collective ReSlides! I don’t blame you. Athletic slides are definitely trending right now, have you seen the cloud slides? In my opinion, these ReSlides are the perfect balance between an athletic slide & something that is versatile/cute enough to be worn with a variety of clothes.
That’s one of my favorite things about my Fig ReSlides, is that I’m able to wear them with SO many outfits. Think activewear, swim, denim shorts, jeans, maxi dresses, mini dresses, etc! I wouldn’t be able to say the same with your typical athletic slide, which is why I think these ReSlides are the best slides for a modern woman on the go!
Here are a few more reasons why I’m obsessed!
These Girlfriend Collective ReSlides did require a little breaking in but after my first few wears, they were & are SO comfortable. The texture of these slides is pretty firm. They’re definitely not soft & your feet won’t sink down into them, however they feel great on my feet when I wear them. The only thing I disagree with on the description of these slides on the Girlfriend Collective website is that they aren’t lightweight. Especially compared to some other slides I have, like my Birkenstocks, they are significantly heavier. However, that doesn’t make them uncomfortable.
The quality is definitely there which is great, because they’re on the pricer side for a pair of slides – no where near the price of Birkenstocks though! However, the price does factor in the quality & sustainable materials used. You can tell these slides will last for years.
When it comes to sizing, they don’t have half sizes. This wasn’t a problem for me because I’m a size 8 & they fit perfectly. With that said, I mentioned they required a little breaking in for me. At first I thought they were going to be too snug around the top of my foot. But after I broke them in, they fit great. Girlfriend Collective suggests that if you’re a half size, to size up.
I have the color Fig for these ReSlides & it’s safe to say that I’m beyond obsessed. Even though they aren’t a neutral color like pearl or black, I swear they still go with everything. Over the past few months, I’ve worn them SO much with all different types of outfits like jeans shorts, yoga sets, biker shorts, short summer dresses, maxi dresses, & even jeans. The Fig color is just so pretty & really is flattering no matter the outfit you’re wearing! They’re fun because I don’t have another pair of summer slides or shoes in general in a similar color.
Girlfriend Collective currently offers these ReSlides in five really pretty earthy colors. A few of them are pretty much sold out in most of the sizes. Fig, the color I have is still available in a handful of sizes. I’m sure they will restock too.
What’s really cool about these slides is that they’re a recycled & fully recyclable shoe made in the United States, complete with a zero waste manufacturing process. So if you’re a conscious shopper, not only are these a great buy for functionality & wear, but they’re also a fabulous sustainable shoe. The slides are made from a blend of old shoes, scrap material,& a soy-based compound. Plus, the ReSlides incorporate a zero waste design, which doesn’t include any toxic glue. Any scraps created during the construction of these sustainable slides are reused into new products.
Other fun facts about these slides…
Vegan & cruelty free
BPA, latex, & phthalate free
Slip-resistant & waterproof
- You can send these slides back to Girlfriend Collective to be recycled into new apparel & they’ll reward you with a $15 shopping credit!
- To take care of them, hand wash or machine wash using mild soap or detergent. OR toss in top shelf of dishwasher!
If you’re looking for a great pair of summer or even fall slides, I hope this review was helpful. I can’t even tell you how much I’ve enjoyed wearing my Girlfriend Collective slides. Love the color, love the sustainability aspect of the brand, & love that they look a different from any other slide I already have! 10/10 recommend!
