Jambu Women's Woodstock Slide Sandal – A slider is actually a type of footwear different from shoes and just like flip-flops. They are backless and open-toed, primarily an open-toed mule. Typically, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are normally categorized separately. Slides might be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover nearly the entire foot from ankle to toe, or can have only a few narrow straps. They typically consist of a single strap or perhaps a sequence of straps across the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe within the foot.
