Evolution in Footwear: Slides

Slide is a common term that refers to a shoe that is backless and open-toed. Generally, all slides are a type of sandal. Thongs and flip flops are normally classified separately. Slides can be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover nearly the entire foot from ankle to toe, or may have only one or two narrow straps. They usually include a single strap or a sequence of straps across the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe on the foot.

They are simple and fun footwear that is ideal for beaches and other casual settings and of course perfect for your summer designer clothes. Popular all over the world, it is particularly common in Hawaii and other Polynesian settings. The slippers can be worn by people of any age or gender, and they are designed by popular designer such as Polo Ralph Lauren, making them one of the few truly universal forms of footwear on the market today.

Yesterday’s flip-flop has evolved into a comfortable, fashion-forward style of footwear known as slides. Along with being simple in design, slides are often available in a wide range of colors and patterns.

With so many styles and options to choose from, ranging from dressy to casual, sporty to comfortable, the slide is here to stay.
