    The 2018 ISlide x NBA Playoff Collection is inspired by each city’s culture and history of their fan base. Throughout history, NBA teams have embraced the resilience, culture, grit, and nature of their respective cities. This embracing of culture has long created and inspired team mantras as each season they’ve begun their quest for a NBA Championship. 

     

     



    Whether it’s Philly’s dedication to staying united through the rebuilding process or Golden State’s constant sentiment that strength is in numbers, each team’s logo is reimagined and redesigned incorporating these mantras...allowing you to Stand For Your City with your favorite team.

    Let's Go To College

    Let's Go To College

    Over the past five years, we have made many strategic decisions on how best to grow the company. And over the past 3-4 months, we have made college and universities a priority for us at ISlide. The biggest question is, what took us so long?

    Well, it’s not that easy.

    We initially started with a NBA License in 2015 and it went well. I wouldn't say we blew it out of the water but it was certainly worth extending for another three years and I'm glad we did. It continues to be a huge success. As we grow into the next chapter of our company, our focus should be college. College kids live in sweats and slides. The college licensing world is also a beast and took us a while to really wrap our arms around it. With various licensing agencies, buying institutions, and independents looking for "easy wins," we had to have a clear strategy before diving into our next major initiative.

    As a company we have employed two approaches to the college world. The first, which is the most obvious, is applying for licensing at each school directly. This is what we have been doing with Michigan State, Alabama, and LSU to name a few. Once we get designs approved, they go live on our website and are available for anybody to purchase. And today we can add The Ohio State University to the mix, another major school that we are excited to have on our team.

    Our second strategy is more complicated. In the fall, ISlide partnered with a sales agency to sell directly into campus local shops and bookstores. Under this approach, we are able to get into retail outlets without having to go through the time-consuming process of obtaining each individual collegiate license and selling into each account.

    The market for college gear is something that will always be there for us. There will always be a continual re-supply of customers demanding college gear as new students are being accepted and attending these schools every year. However, ISlide does not believe “grabbing a piece” of the college apparel market is enough. The college market is something that we fully plan on dominating, and it all begins with licensing.

    The "athleisure" world we live in isn't going away for a while and we know people LOVE their college. Whether they are lifelong fans, part of a club or varsity team, or even an alumnus, people have so much pride in their school. They also identify heavily with everything that speaks to their campus. With our mantra of Stand In What You Stand For, we couldn't ask for a better marriage.

    Langston Galloway of the Detroit Pistons Just Dropped His Own Line of Custom Designed Slides with ISlide

    The rising NBA star and sneaker addict has partnered with the Boston-based footwear innovator from Shark Tank to expand his LG Kicks brand

    Langston Galloway of the Detroit Pistons is taking his LG Kicks brand to the next level with the launch of a new line of slide sandals designed by footwear-designer-to-the-stars ISlide. The LG Kicks ISlides are the NBA star and sneaker head Galloway’s first line of custom kicks available to the public, and features six different collaborative designs (“Detroit Skyline”, “Motor City”, “Motor City Logo”, “LG Silhouette”, “LG Claws” and “LG Kicks Logo”) with color variations co-created by the pro baller and Shark Tank alum. It was a no-brainer for Galloway to eventually launch his own line of fresh kicks. The Pistons guard launched LG Kicks last year - an Instagram account dedicated to his love of fresh footwear and sharp sneaks.

    Athlete and celebrity partnerships are nothing new for ISlide. Since inception, the custom slide designer has launched collaborations and licensing deals with such powerhouses as the NBA, Nickelodeon, Dwyane Wade, Antonio Brown, LeBron James, Devin and Jason McCourty, DJ Khaled and a number of other notable teams, brands and organizations. ISlides fuse fashion and athletics as the only fully customizable sought-after athletic sandal sweeping the world one sole at a time.

    The motivation behind his game all told on his ISlides…

    The King in the Fourth is back, having averaged 28.9 points last year and he’s ready more than ever for the grind again! Isaiah Thomas recently was spotted in his Game Of Thrones inspired Slides,“King in the Fourth” that coincide with recent Game of Thrones 2017 season premiere. Having made clutch shots left and right throughout the fourth quarter for the Boston Celtics last year made him the leading scorer in that NBA category.  

    In fact, all of his ISlides have a particular motivation behind them. This year he’s “All Gas, No Brakes”

    Most importantly, Isaiah Thomas stays focused and inspired on and off the court through the support of his family. His first customizable slide pair ever made was with a picture of his two boys, Jaiden and James to help him remember each day why he works so hard to be the best he can be.
