Adidas Performance Women's Anyanda Flex Slide W Athletic Sandal – A slider is a kind of footwear different from shoes and similar to flip-flops. They’re backless and open-toed, primarily an open-toed mule. Frequently, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are normally classified independently. Slides can be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and could cover nearly the whole foot from ankle to toe, or could have only one or two narrow straps. They usually include a single strap or a sequence of straps over the toes and the lower half of the foot to carry the shoe on the foot.
