Nike Benassi Solarsoft Slide Women's Shoes – A slider is a type of footwear distinct from shoes and just like flip-flops. They’re backless and open-toed, primarily an open-toed mule. Generally, 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 approximately the whole foot from ankle to toe, or might have only a couple of narrow straps. They typically include a single strap or perhaps a sequence of straps throughout the toes and the lower half of the foot to carry the shoe within the foot.
