Teva Women's W Tirra Slide Sandal – A slider is actually a form of footwear distinct from shoes and similar to flip-flops. They are backless and open-toed, basically an open-toed mule. Typically, all slides are sandals. Thongs and flip flops are commonly labeled independently. Slides could be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover approximately the entire foot from ankle to toe, or could have only one or two narrow straps. They typically include a single strap or perhaps a sequence of straps across the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe to the foot.
