    Intern Blog: What I Put On My Slides And Why?

    Intern Blog: What I Put On My Slides And Why?

    Holding the reputation of the only premium customizable slides in the industry, ISlide has managed to satisfy tens of thousands of consumers in just 5 years. By allowing individuals to either personalize an existing design, or customizing their own pair from scratch, each slide acts as an “extension of self-expression.” And for my first pair of slides, I had decided to personalize an existing pair from a few months back.


    If anyone knows me, they would know that I absolutely love my school. Just 20 miles north of Boston stands Endicott College, a suburban institution located on the water. And when your school owns 3 beaches, what better way to show your school spirit than with a custom pair of slides?!


    The original design had been based on last year’s basketball jerseys, which is a solid green color with the college’s name written in their signature blue font. In order to recreate this look, the design team had added a polyester micro mesh background, as well as two white strokes in each outer corner of the strap.


    Moving onto the smaller details, I had decided to keep the small graphic of the Gull, Endicott’s mascot, on the side of the slide, as it is considered a must-have when representing Endicott’s campus, or “The Nest.” To make them slightly more personal, I decided to include my initials on the opposite slide.

    Intern Blog: 10 Things You Should Know About ISlide

    Intern Blog: 10 Things You Should Know About ISlide

    1. Work Hard, Play hard. Here at ISlide our employees and interns are dedicated to building our brand through hard work, but we also like (and know how) to have fun while doing so! With that, our office is complete with a basketball court, a lounge area (which we call the “Mez”) that has a flat screen TV, a ping pong table, and cornhole tables. And of course, there’s never a day in the office without music!
    2. Monday Stretches. Every Monday we gather on the court and stretch as a team to get ready for the week. Once everybody is loose, each department gives a recap on the previous week’s performance.
    3. Dress Code. Our relaxed dress code includes  Workout Wednesdays, (complete with on-the-hour workouts of course),Throwback Jersey Thursday, and Comfy Fridays. And yes, our employees do wear their customized slides every day!
    4. Shark Tank. You may recognize our unique slides from the hit TV show, Shark Tank. In 2016, our CEO, JK, presented his brand to the sharks and was given an offer! Despite turning it down, he was able to grow ISlide into the company we love today!
    5. Mantra. Every new employee must recite the ISlide mantra in front of the team upon their first week here. Tune into Instagram this Friday for the live show!
    6. Music Video Remix! All new employees and interns must create remixes to songs, incorporating ISlide on their first day of work! My group remixed Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” by changing the lyrics to “I want slides my way”. Some other iconic remixes have been “I Believe I Can Slide” and “Suga, Suga, where’d you get those slides?”
    7. Our office is dog friendly. Don’t be surprised if you run into a furry friend while visiting. Many employees bring their dogs to work!
    8. Licenses. As some of you may know, Licenses have become a large part of our business. With the NBA and Nickelodeon Licenses along with the new addition of Uncle Drew, we have been able to grow our company and put slides on more and more people and celebrities. My personal favorite is the NBA because I’m able to represent my Cavs through an official design or custom design my own.
    9. Everyone is Hands On! Every month our MASSIVE shipment of blank slides is delivered to headquarters. Our employees spend as much time needed during shipments to make sure the delivery goes as smoothly as possible! Creating an assembly line from the shipping dock to the stacks, we efficiently organize thousands of slides that’ll end up on your feet! A great team building experience and workout! (And shoutout to Henry Ford!)
    10. Stand in What You Stand for. Here at ISlide, we always encourage people to represent themselves and their values. I love how our customizable product gives people the chance to freely express themselves. At ISlide, it’s all about giving you the tools to represent yourself and your values.

    My name is Nisha Momin, and I am an operations intern at ISlide. After working here for just a few weeks now, slides have become a staple in my wardrobe, whether in the office or at home. I recently went to the beach in Maine and brought my Cleveland slides along! They were the perfect addition to my beach look—easy to wear while representing my team!

    Intern Blog: The Perfect 'Fit

    First, I would like to fully disclose that I am a fashion lover and footwear collector. Believe it or not, slides are becoming a thing of the present. It’s all about comfort and style. Just look at all the high end brands, such as Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and others, adding them to their collections. Being a design intern at ISlide, I get to see so many cool ideas and creations that our customers come up with. Personally, in order to find the perfect “fit”, I like to make sure my outfit looks great with my slides. Finding the perfect “fit” is more than just an outfit it is about finding what you love to wear. The slides I designed is what I love and describes me in a small aspect.

    What makes ISlide so special is that I wouldn’t be able to pull off my outfits, especially my perfect “fit”, with any other generic slide. ISlide gives myself along with everyone else the freedom and ability to create something that means a lot. I love being able to make my entire outfit unique with my custom pair of slides. At ISlide you get to create what makes the perfect “fit” for you whether you’re a Lakers fan, showing love to your college, or starting your own brand and wanting to see it flourish on your feet. ISlides not only add swag to your outfit, they show who you are as a person.

    Intern Blog: Why ISlides Should Be Your Go-To Footwear

    Intern Blog: Why ISlides Should Be Your Go-To Footwear

    Before this summer, I hated wearing slides. I had tried wearing a variety of styles, brands, and designs but each left me equally disappointed with fit and quality. However, my pair of ISlides completely restored my faith in this type of footwear, and I have loved sporting them all spring.

    ISlide’s unique footbed played a large role in my initial liking of the shoe. As intriguing as it is to look at and touch with you hands, it is comfortable and supportive. The underside of the strap also contributes to the comfortableness, as it is covered in a thick pad and sprayed with antimicrobial spray to keep the stink away (key for that summer feet heat). However, the aspect of the slide that really got me hooked was the adjustable strap. This is the biggest perk for me, as I previously disliked slides because they never seemed to stay on my feet. However, my ISlides stay on perfectly all day and I NEVER have to re-adjust them (unless I want to rock some socks with them)!

    In addition to the comfort factor, ISlides can really be the pop your outfit may need! For example, many of us frequently opt for black and neutral clothing colors for practical reasons; consequently, this often leads to our outfits looking bland and boring. ISlides can offer a simple fix to this problem, with ten colors to choose from and an unlimited amount of design ideas, your outfit will be anything but bland. Personally, I love pairing my tiffany blue slides with a groutfit to spice up my lazy look and make it feel fun.

    Lastly, and most importantly, ISlides is the only slide in the game that you can completely customize. This feature allows you to express yourself in any way—color and design— or as we like to say, “stand in what you stand for.” Even if you’re not the creative type, you can browse through our hundreds of options until you find a pair that reflects YOU. This could be sporting a pair featuring your favorite NBA team or player, some 90’s inspired cartoons that capture your childhood, or a pattern that represents your personality. Fortunately, the options are endless!

    National Slide Day Recap

    On Thursday, June 21st, the rest of the “sane” world along with ISlide celebrated National Slide Day! A holiday that holds a special place in the hearts of slide lovers across the world, but a particularly special place for the ISlide team. For 5 years now, the ISlide team has shared their passion for comfortable, stylish, quality slides with the world through innovation and creativity. To celebrate we took some time during the afternoon to come together, eat, and party.  Check out the awesome photos we took that day!

    And it wouldn’t have been a party without a (cookie) cake, of course!

    We wanted to let everybody in on the celebration with us, so we decided to give the people what they want, which is a discount! Additionally, we donated over 1,600 pairs of our slides to the Salvation Army and to the hundreds of children who attend Camp Wonderland.

    Slides are some of the best footwear for both comfort and style. Here at ISlide, we have been working with world class designers and engineers to build the most comfortable footbed imaginable. With our easy-to-use online customizer, customers are given the tools to build any slide that they can think of and stand in what they stand for. We take so much pride in celebrating National Slide Day because we take so much pride in everything that we do. And hey, it's always nice to have an excuse to eat a piece of cookie cake!
