Since our ancestral times, mankind has spent countless hours perfecting the practice of wearing and designing footwear.

From the early sandals in Egypt to those rocked by the Ancient Greeks and soldiers in the Roman empire, the time-honored tradition of protecting one's feet - even if only via a strap and lower base component, permeates all segments of society and everyday life.

In celebration of World Flip Flop Day, Team Ox Street has put together a list of sartorial must-haves for those days when it just gets too warm to be rocking your favorite kicks.

Yeezy Slides 'Desert Sand'

The Yeezy Slide 'Desert Sand' offers Kanye West’s take on a casual sandal, good for postgame relaxation or weekend lounging. A subtle tan finish complements the minimalist build, made with lightweight and durable EVA foam.

Exterior branding is limited to adidas’ three-stripe logo debossed on the soft footbed. The outsole is crafted with strategically placed horizontal grooves for superior comfort and traction.

Adilette 22 Slide 'Desert Sand'

These adidas Adilette Slides answer the question, "What would slides look like in space?" Inspired by 3D topography and human expeditions to Mars, they defy gravity with futuristic design details. The contoured footbed and soft rubber outsole ensure maximum comfort whether you're hitting the showers or the streets.

Salehe Bembury x Pollex Clog 'Green'

The Salehe Bembury x Crocs Pollex Clog ‘Green’ applies a monochrome finish to a reworked version of the Classic Clog. Bembury covers the molded foam build in concave ridges that resemble the footwear designer’s signature fingerprint motif.

The textured pattern extends to the outsole for multi-directional traction, while targeted ventilation ports in the upper provide enhanced breathability. A removable heel strap features dual Crocs and Salehe Bembury branding.

Justin Bieber x Classic Clog 'Drew'

Made in collaboration with the Canadian singer/songwriter, the Justin Bieber x Crocs Classic Clog ‘Drew’ features a monochromatic yellow finish in a nod to the former’s fashion brand, Drew House.

The slip-on is built with Croslite foam and appointed with standard Classic Clog details, including ventilation ports and a pivoting heel strap for a secure fit. Eight unique Jibbitz charms allow for a customized look.

With some many slides in the market to choose from, we feel these contemporary classic will stand the test of time - or at least for a sizable chunk of lifespan while they help you glide stylishly with each step. Your Toes Were Meant To Live Free, Slides Are The Answer
