    The Process 3

    At ISlide we take pride in our work, and every customer is our most important partner. Over the past 6 years, we have continuously refined The Process of helping others Stand In What You Stand For. Whether our customer is DJ Khaled, Marcus Morris, the Brandeis Judges Men’s Basketball team, or John Doe, we strive to give every single order the VIP treatment. We worked with videographer Christopher Cardoza to help us properly tell the story of The ISlide Process- enjoy!

    Customizing Valentines Day

    Customizing Valentines Day

    The normal customs of Valentine’s day are obvious to most. Writing cards to your class, candy, and a dinner date with a movie have been the go-to’s for many Americans on February 14th.The fun of Valentine’s day has been stripped from the new generation in Boston schools with the ban of Valentine’s day parties. Teachers are asking parents to send their kids into school with origami instead of continuing the tradition of candy hearts and cards on valentine’s day. There is no doubt that Valentine’s day parties have lived in our childhood memories for years, but our culture is surely shifting away from these traditions. Skipping the flowers and chocolates and getting creative with Valentine’s day has also been on the rise. Valentine’s day has taken on a new meaning for most; one that Is more personal and less glued to tradition.

                Lately, Valentine’s day has been about making new memories, but just like ISlide stays rooted in its humble beginnings, my favorite memory of Valentine’s day will always triumph over those of the new age Valentine’s Day. My memory of opening cards from each of my elementary school classmates will always hold sentimental value to me when February rolls around. Whether it be taking a break during the day for candy, or awaiting a love letter from your crush, elementary school valentine’s day parties will always hold the most nostalgic and pure meaning for me.

                Cultural shifts surrounding Valentine’s day have most likely thrown many gift givers for a loop, leaving them wondering what the best gift to give would be. This year, customize your Valentine’s day with a hot pair of ISlides that your significant other will fall head over heels for, and never forget to stand in what you stand for!

               

    Super Bowl LIII

    Super Bowl LIII

    Four of the last five super bowls have been decided by a single possession. Some of the most heart-wrenching and soul-shattering super bowls have happened within the past five or ten years. With this years matchup of the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, many are predicting another nail-biter. The Patriots have been given the advantage in this matchup by quite a few experts, before the AFC championship game the pats were actually down a point in most books. However, by the end of the night they had jumped up to a two or three point favorite . Yet, the Rams have been sporting a brick wall of a D-line in recent weeks at the very least. But clashing with the nigh-unstoppable force that seems to be the Patriots offense (even more so since the playoffs started) is going to be no mean feet.  No matter who says what, it’s gonna be a close game for sure.

    A big part of the Patriots offensive success this year has been due to the undying loyalty and crazy superstitions of their incredible and wholly-unbiased fans. However, we can’t shorthand the leadership forces that really drive the team though; Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are always a frightening duo to go up against. It doesn’t matter how bad they’ve been playing, how much cheating they have been accused of, or how many points you’re up by with two minutes left in the fourth. However, Jared Goff of the Rams has shed the kid gloves for sure; pulling out a win, by the skin of his teeth, in their last game against the saints. It seems pretty safe to say that both team will be coming out strong this year, and we can only wait and see what happens in the end.

    What is ISlide Heroes?

    What is ISlide Heroes?

    With 2019 finally here, many of us have spent the last few weeks reflecting on the great moments of 2018. Memories we shared with friends, family, co-workers, and others that made 2018 an unforgettable year. Here at ISlide, we were able to create so many new opportunities and build on existing ones that will really help launch us into our next phase. A program in particular that we are very proud to have launched in 2018 is ISlide Heroes. ISlide Heroes is our initiative dedicated to inspiring, appreciating, and honoring the special people in our lives who create memories and moments we never forget.

    Every month, we encourage our customers and supporters to take the time to nominate someone they know personally, that they believe makes an incredible impact on the lives of others. Once decided we will choose a few of the applicants to receive special recognition with a pair of custom slides that include some of their favorite things and a visit from the ISlide team to give that hero the spotlight they deserve. As many of the past heroes have reflected on the experience, "I don't do this for recognition, but it does feel nice to have such a public appreciation."

    So far we've met incredible professionals, inspiring kids, a loving couple, and a few men and women who make strong impacts in the lives of many and all more than deserving of being honored. As our CEO and Founder describes the program, Heroes appear in so many ways and we are all surrounded by them...these are people who epitomize our mantra of Stand In What You Stand For and it’s time we celebrate them.”

    So in 2019, we challenge you to take the time, daily, to let the people in your life know how grateful and thankful you are for them.
