Slide sandals are a hassle-free, convenient shoe for men that comes in a wide variety of styles. Materials range from leather to Croslite, a foam resin used by shoe manufacturer Crocs. Materials aside, all shoes of this type feature a design that allows feet to slip in and out with ease. Some slide sandals are dressy-casual and feature embellishments like buckles and braided straps. Others are simple and made of durable, waterproof material, making them the perfect footwear for pool and beach outings.
