    Valentines Day Sucks... Sometimes

    Valentines Day Sucks... Sometimes

    Valentine’s day is the worst. But then again, last year I thought it was the best. I wonder what changed?... If you are a human being like me, and you are romantically interested in other human beings (like me), then you have probably been through this shift in Valentine’s perception (like me). It’s just part of human nature. We all want to be with someone, but the sad fact of life is that some people just suck (or just aren’t good for you specifically) and sometimes you just don’t see that until you’re already elbow deep in a relationship. Other than swearing off relationships forever, I really see no hard-and-fast solution to this dilemma.


     

     

     

     

    I guess the only quasi-solution is just to go on with life, hoping for the best and complaining endlessly if it doesn’t come to pass. But, no matter what stage of relationship you’re in, ISlide has some killer slides for you. For those at the pinnacle of the relationship world, the married, we have slides I hope to one-day wear: our “Hubby” and “Wifed up” slides. For those recently out of a relationship we have some slightly more aggressive slides- check out our “Salty VDay” collection with classics such as “tequila is my valentine” and a few with some not-so-loving candy hearts all over them. And for those who are single and living their best life, we have some “King” and
     “Queen” slides. Also check out our Explicit collection for some even more aggressive slides if you REALLY REALLY want to show off how single you are, while also flipping the bird to that ex-special someone. While you're waiting for your new slides to come, you can check out these videos, bellow, of some fun things we did with Brett Robinson to prepare ourselves.

     

     

     

      

     

     

    ISlide Experience: Dee Brown

    Last week, retired professional basketball player and 1991 NBA Slam Dunk contest champion Dee Brown came to visit us at our ISlide Headquarters in Boston. We had a lot of fun shooting around and customizing a special pair of slides for Dee. Check out the recap video below! 

    Super Bowl Parade & Quiz on the Street

    Super Bowl Parade & Quiz on the Street

    February 5th of 2019 was an exciting day for sure. We walked around in Boston, spoke with our fans, and asked them random Pats trivia for giveaways. Oh, the Super Bowl parade was also going on at the same time; so that was pretty cool too. (Congrats to the Super Bowl 53 Champions, the New England Patriots!)

    All kidding aside, we had an amazing day on Tuesday. The parade was a blast, seeing all the Champs drive by waving and cheering is always fantastic. We did actually have a lot of fun with our friends from the parade though. If you saw our instagram story you’ll know that we spent a lot of time walking around quizzing fans for a chance to win a free pair of slides. In case you didn’t see our IG story, first off you should go follow us on instagram ;). Next, you should watch the full video here!

    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.

    ISlide at HoopHall Classic 2019

    ISlide at HoopHall Classic 2019

    To start 2019 off with a bang we decided to head over to the HoopHall classic in Springfield Massachusetts to check out some of the future college and NBA superstars in action. With some mini-basketball games, a backdrop for photos, and a ton of discount Slides, everyone came to see the ISlide setup.

    This Year marks the 18th annual HoopHall Classic. This tournament takes place in Springfield college and is put on by the Basketball Hall of fame. It is an opportunity for some of the best players from high schools all over the country to compete. The tournament started on Thursday, January 17th and ran until Monday the 19th. We were able to get right into the heat of things showing up on Saturday when the tournament was really starting to get intense.

    With the Pop-a-shot set up we decided to have a giveaway based on who could get the most points in thirty seconds. We did 4+ main giveaways this weekend, with the winner of each getting a free pair of slides. This first contest ended in a tie between two middle schoolers, both of whom nailed thirty-one buckets in thirty seconds. One of the two picked a pair of slides on the spot, and went home happy with a fine pair of black on black lakers slides. The other decided to go the custom route, and waited to customize his own unique pair later. We made a lot of people happy our first day there, sending many home with new slides. We also talked to a number of new teams about getting custom orders done for the whole team as a season-ending gift, or as a start to next years season.

    The second day we wanted to mix things up, so we changed the giveaway plan to see who could get the best trick shot in, on camera. We posted all of those videos to our instagram for the world to decide which shot was the best. Our winner walked away in some brand new custom furs, and a deep sense of pride.

    All of the teams really showed up to play this weekend. We were so happy to get out there and be able to give some custom slides to the best of the best, while also getting to watch these incredible athletes perform. All in all, it was a good weekend for us too. A lot of new athletes are walking around in their own one of a kind slides and there are a number of whole teams either committed to, or are seriously considering, getting team orders for next season!
