The Simple, Stylish Slide

Posted by Afterpay Key

Before slide sandals it is hard to imagine what the world was like. This omnipresent, practical shoe has helped to keep us from wiping out on pool decks, it’s protected us from those not so pleasant looking college dorm showers, and it’s simple to slip on when the pooch decides it needs to go out do its needs in the middle of a rainstorm.

Despite its ubiquity, slides are relatively young, gaining wide adoption during the early 1970s as they were used to protect the soles of German soccer players. Today, they are everywhere and are renowned for their simple style, ease of cleaning, and distinct designs. Everyone from Kanye West to Facebook founder Mark Zuckberg has been seen wearing them, the latter is notorious for his broad assortment of hoodies and slides.

Slides are just one of the many products you’ll find when you visit the flagship Secret Scientist store opening tomorrow, July 2 at The Shoppes at Bel Air Mall in Mobile, Alabama. We’ll have several different styles in stock. If you can’t make it the grand opening, the items found at the store will be available online one week later.
