    Celebrate the Return of Sports

    Just because we can’t get to arenas this summer, doesn’t mean sports are cancelled. Sports are back, and the time has come to cheer on your favorite teams again. Take a look at our ideas to spice up game days from your home.

    Slip Into Your Lucky Slides

     

    Support your team from head to toe. Gear up on game days with a pair of our comfortable licensed Slides. Use them as a good luck charm to boost morale.

    Re-Imagine Your Man Cave

    Maybe you’ve got a man cave, perfect for watching the big game. But if not, don’t fret. With a few added decorations, any space can become the perfect hub for viewing. Get creative. Try an outdoor theater with a projector.

    Cook Up Something Good

    It’s not game day without some snacks to chow down. A seven layer dip? Pigs in a blanket?  Don’t be scared to try new recipes. The perfect game day always involves the perfect food to snack on. With more time on your plate, explore new ideas.

    Crack Open a Cold One

    The best way to watch football is with a cool drink in hand (for those 21+ of course). Plus, whether your drink of choice is Busch Light, Natural Light, or Captain Morgan, we have slides to match.

    Get Hyped

    Get excited. Your favorite players are playing again. Play your favorite music, wear your team’s colors, paint your face! Show the world how excited you are for your favorite pastime.

    Go Out and Play

    Let’s face it, we’re been deprived of sports for far too long. But you can get in on the action right from home. Shoot some hoops or throw a ball around with your family or friends.

    What are your game day rituals? We want to know! Share how you’re cheering your team on from home on social, and don’t forget to tag @ISlideUSA.

    Sports Business Daily - Business Update

     

     

    Consumers have made slides the footwear of choice during the pandemic.

    With pro sports largely sidelined since March, most sports licensing companies are having their worst year ever, especially apparel manufacturers. A notable exception is ISlide. The seven-year-old Boston-based company, which makes customized licensed slides, is now forecasting its best sales year ever. The company's success is largely due to its model of low inventory and at-once production, along with consumers’ adoption of slides as the footwear of choice during the at home pandemic period. ISlide Founder & CEO Justin Kittredge said, "They’re like sweatpants, everyone’s work at home uniform." Slides were already trending. Before the pandemic, the company was projecting 30% growth. The pandemic hit in March and eight of 25 workers were furloughed. In April, ISlide got a $300,000 PPP loan and hired them back. May turned into the second-best sales month in company history, while June was third best. Now, ISlide is predicting its best sales year ever, with 47% growth projected, as DTC and drop-shipping for other sites has mushroomed into 90% of its business. It also has recently launched a customized line of matching socks to complement the slides. “We were in the right market at the right time and consumers responded,’’ said Kittredge. "We’ve started to sell a few robes lately; maybe we’ll just become the comfortwear company."
