Is there anything more classic than mens slide sandals? They've been around for decades and show up at barbeques, beach parties and grocery store shopping trips. Rogan's Shoes has a generous selection of slides to get you through the hottest days of the year. From traditional styles to more modern and trending versions, we've got you covered.
The History of Slides
While some aficionados of this ubiquitous footwear like to claim origins in ancient Greece or Rome, the truth is much closer to the present day. After World War II European styles began to travel across the Atlantic Ocean with greater ease. By the mid-1960s, a basic slide from Positano, Italy, had made its way into the American fashion scene. Just a simple platform with a skinny strap, it nonetheless started a trend.
At about the same time, Adidas realized that the German soccer team needed something to wear in the locker room and showers. They developed their Adilette slide, which is still on the market today, for the team to wear. When they released it to the public in 1972, it became a huge seller.
Today slides come in all colors, styles, materials, and sizes. They are still worn in the locker room showers but have also made their way into every facet of life. Proving to be a versatile bit of footwear, slides are now embedded in our wardrobes and psyches.
Types and Brands of Slides

You can find traditional slides made of polyurethane or EVA. These have the advantage of being completely waterproof.
