As the UK begins to open up again and we all venture out to pub gardens and beyond, you've probably already swapped your comfortable WFH footwear for a pair of trainers. But for anyone missing how it feels to wear a pair of slides all day, there is another way. A footwear option that can take you from your home office to out, out.

Meet Nike's Air Max 90 ‘Cork’ Slide. Not exactly your cup of tea? Hear us out.

The Air Max slide's easy-on, easy-off silhouette makes this the perfect WFH shoe, while the inclusion of the Air Max's iconic air units mean that this is a 'going out' slide – if that's a thing.

If comfort is what you're after, that's guaranteed with the inclusion of a padded off-white strap, cork-infused panels on the sides and ultra-plush footbeds, which are lined with horizontal grooves that run the slide's length.

Fancy getting your hands on a pair? Well, the slides have unfortunately sold out after their initial Nike Japan release, but they are expected to be released in Nike's other territories later in the year.

Keep your eyes peeled to cop.
