Danskin Now Women's Enchant Slide Toning Fit Sandals – A slider is actually a form of footwear distinct from shoes and similar to flip-flops. They’re backless and open-toed, primarily an open-toed mule. Normally, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are normally categorised separately. Slides could be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and could cover nearly the entire foot from ankle to toe, or could have only a few narrow straps. They usually consist of a single strap or possibly a sequence of straps through the toes and the lower half of the foot to carry the shoe to the foot.
