Dsw Mens Slide Sandals – A slider is a type of footwear different from shoes and just like flip-flops. They’re backless and open-toed, basically an open-toed mule. Normally, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are typically classified individually. Slides could be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover around the entire foot from ankle to toe, or could have only a couple of narrow straps. They sometimes include a single strap or a sequence of straps through the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe within the foot.
