Sliders are similar to flip flops. Flip flops have a flat sole, but instead of a strap, sliders have a single wide strap that crosses the forefoot near the toes. They are mainly used on the beach or in the pool. Slip on sliders are still designed to be lightweight, comfortable and allow the foot to breathe easier in hot weather, just like flip flops. They are comfortable, relaxed shoes that you can wear in spring, summer and early fall. The name of these shoes refers to the fact that you can put them on and take them off with one or more straps. Wear your sliders with skirts and dresses for a morning brunch look. You can wear them with simple leather or shiny satin sandals for a playful look. Wearing slider and socks is a contentious fashion trend and a personal choice.
