TikTok Pillow Slides Review: Am I The Only One Who Hates Them?


Seriously… Am I the only one out there who hates those squishy, jello-y, TikTok-famous pillow slides? 

Everyone is going wild over this type of slides this summer! Or at least it feels like “everyone” to me. Called by many names: TikTok slides, cloud slides, pillow slippers, marshmallow slides, cushion slides, gummy slides…you guys know the ones. They’re soft and rubbery and get bazillions of good reviews on Amazon — well, maybe not bazillions but definitely lots and lots.  

When folks (even the super-young and hip ones) start talking about comfortable shoes, I get very interested. 

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Pillow Slides (Spoiler…I’m Not A Fan)

I ordered two brands of cushiony, rubbery pillow slides (BRONAX and Joomra) and then one pair of leather slides — from my beloved comfort-shoe brand, FitFlop — that have a sort of similar vibe (currently on sale!) 

This video takes a look at what I like about each pair of slides as well as what I don’t…but I guess the title of the article kiiiiind of gives away at least part of the results. More details in the video. 

Also, make sure to check out Laura’s recent post on the J/Slides version of these pillowy, marshmallow-y, cloud-like sandals. Maybe J/Slides has created the perfect pair? Wouldn’t be surprising, J/Slides cushiony winter boots are pretty dreamy. Laura…plan a visit to Philly soon, so I can try yours out!

But for now…details of the three pairs I tried.

I would, of course, LOVE to hear from you guys about the topic of pillow slides. I know I might be in the minority here, and everyone else may LOVE them — like the rest of Amazon and TikTok — but you guys know my feet have VERY strong opinions that they like to express. Would love to hear your thoughts and what your feet think of them!
