Nike Kawa Women's Slide Sandals – A slider is actually a form of footwear distinct from shoes and much like flip-flops. They are backless and open-toed, basically an open-toed mule. Normally, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are typically categorized individually. Slides could be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere between, and may cover nearly the whole foot from ankle to toe, or could possibly have only a couple of narrow straps. They usually include a single strap or possibly a sequence of straps throughout the toes and the lower half of the foot to carry the shoe to the foot.
