Adidas is putting a high fashion spin on their newest pair of shower shoes slides this summer. They just dropped their Adilette wood slides for women, referring to them as a "cutting edge re-interpretation" of the original.

They're intended to be a "high fashion" version of the brand's synthetic Adilettes from the ‘70s —€” the "high fashion" update being the thick wooden platforms and the rippled rubber soles. They still have the signature PU banded uppers with three stripes, but you probably shouldn't wear them in the shower or near a court of any kind. Sorry.

If you're willing to drop $120, you can cop a pair, here — a pricier alternative to the classics, which will run you around $30. But honestly, who cares. I just want to know if they're anywhere near as comfortable as these:
