Heat Wave Slide Sandal – A slider is actually a form of footwear distinct from shoes and just like flip-flops. They are backless and open-toed, primarily an open-toed mule. Usually, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are normally labeled separately. Slides could be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere between, and may cover around the whole foot from ankle to toe, or may have only a couple of narrow straps. They sometimes include 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.
