Converse One Star Sandals Slides – A slider is a form of footwear different from shoes and much like flip-flops. They’re backless and open-toed, primarily an open-toed mule. Usually, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are typically labeled independently. Slides might be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover nearly the entire foot from ankle to toe, or might have only one or two narrow straps. They typically include a single strap or possibly a sequence of straps across the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe to the foot.
