Sliding in Style: An iSlides Review


“Stand in what you stand for”

Summer is quickly coming to an end, and many of us are going back to school in one way or another. Whether you’re heading back to college or high school yourself, sending off your young ones to their new classrooms, or even just planning a fun vacation now that the season is winding down, it’s really the perfect time to get out there and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. The days are still long, the sun is still shining, and none of us are ready to put away the flip-flops and shorts any time soon. Of course, it’s also the perfect time to invest in some warm weather gear, to enjoy this year and next.

Whether you want a new pair of sandals for the beach, some easy slip-ons to wear on the way to sports or the gym, or even just something simple to clunk around the house in, finding a great pair of easy on shoes is a staple for any wardrobe. Unfortunately, most sandals and flip-flops aren’t exactly comfortable for your feet, and finding the style that suits you can be a tough prospect. As far as comfort goes, we found the iSlide slides to be surprisingly comfortable. The sole is nice and thick, and it’s really quite firm. You might think that would be rough on the feet, but it’s actually really supportive. They felt better than going barefoot, even at home – and that’s high praise indeed. This stems from the RPL (sounds like ripple) pattern on the footbed, which is designed for maximum comfort. The straps are a cushiony soft foam, which is adjustable via velcro for a nice snug fit, and they are also fully customizable (more on that later). iSlides also come complete with sneaker-like treads on the soles to help prevent slipping and an antimicrobial spray so they won’t get all sweaty and disgusting. It is obvious that a whole lot of work has gone into making these absolutely user friendly.


Now, I know not everyone is all that into fashion, but everyone likes shoes they can feel comfortable wearing, and the ideal shoe for everyone isn’t always the one that’s trendy in the stores that season. That’s why the iSlides concept is such a cool one. There are plenty of readymade sandals to choose from in their shop, but if you don’t find just what you want, you can customize your own however you like – and whether that’s a favorite photo, some original artwork, your business’ logo, or even just your favorite colors, they’ve got you covered. You can choose from a variety of cool colors, add your favorite NBA logo, or upload your own design. If you can’t find what you want, or if your current logo needs a little work, they even have designers on staff who will help you out for an extra fee. It’s a great option for sports teams, and pretty much any group who wants to show their pride in style. Naturally, we worked with them to design a slide with the GamesFiends logo on it, and we found the process to be incredibly easy. More importantly, the finished product was a quality one. The colors are vibrant, the printing is very well done, and most importantly – they look great.


Whether you’re looking for a fun way to represent your company, team, school, or personality, iSlides are an excellent choice for customizing products that will both look great and stand up to the test of time. And even if customizing isn’t your thing, the iSlides are one of the most comfortable sandals I’ve ever worn – you can treat your feet like royalty, and look absolutely boss doing it.
