Nike Kawa Boys' Slide Sandals Nz – A slider is a type of footwear different from shoes and comparable to flip-flops. They are backless and open-toed, basically an open-toed mule. Typically, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are typically labeled independently. Slides can be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere between, and could cover nearly the whole foot from ankle to toe, or can have only a few narrow straps. They sometimes include a single strap or perhaps a sequence of straps through the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe within the foot.
