    Spring Break, ISlide Style

    Spring Break, ISlide Style

    Spring Break is definitely one of the most necessary, and beneficial breaks of the year. It lets us all once again realize that there is in fact a human being behind the piles of notes, hours of lectures, and mountains of books we aren’t really going to ever read. It’s a chance to
    get out and have some real fun during, what never fails to be, the hardest semester of the year. Spring Break is a break from books (unless they’re ones you want to read), a break from home-work (unless it involves physically working on an actual home), and most importantly of all a break from classes (making you get up at ungodly hours and skip every meal because you just don’t have the time).

    Instead, we replace those boring things with activities we actually enjoy. Activities like hiking, sleeping in, sitting on the beach, drinking a beer on the beach, drinking a beer in the shower, really just drinking a beer wherever you happen to be (and whenever you happen to be, morning shower-beers are a great thing) and doing it all while wearing the comfiest clothing possible. For me, that’s a bathing suit, sun glasses, and a good pair of summer slides. I just can’t have my toes covered while I’m on vacation, it feels like a crime. So I Spring Break kickin it no socks in my comfy slides to get that sweet sweet foot-strap tan line to let people know, not only, that I went somewhere warmer than them, but also that I was more comfy than they were at the same time.

    Sliding into This Years All Star Game

    Sliding into This Years All Star Game

    The 68th annual NBA all star game is finally so close we can taste it! It tastes like sweat, hardwood floors, and basketball-leather. We would advise against tasting it, but it’s close enough that you could if you wanted to. That aside, this year’s game is shaping up to be an interesting one to be sure. With Giannis leading the East and Lebron leading the West, this will definitely be one heck of a matchup. People have been criticizing the new draft system for the all star game, saying that fans deserved more than just 50% of the vote. But if you really think about it, did any of us really want to see older players like Dwyane Wade paired up starting against rookies like Luka Doncic? It seems like the lineups have turned out at least somewhat evenly. Now that the starting five for each team have been released, we can take a real look at some of the 1-on-1 matchups we’re going to be seeing this year.

    The biggest news seems to be Giannis taking Lebron’s old captain position in the East. Some people are saying that Giannis may do better at “captaining” than Lebron did. Some are even saying that he may be ushering in a new generation of players and may have what it takes to really make this year’s NBA all star game a great show (unlike the somewhat ...tame... event that happened last year). Either way, we’ll just have to wait for Feb 17th to see how it plays out.

    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!

               

    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!
