I’ll let you in on a secret right now, unless shoes are 100% socially appropriate to wear, I’ll go around in flip-flops or slip-ons. Whether it’s a trip to the beach in the sun or a trip to the grocery store in the snow, I most likely wear skis. The unfortunate problem behind this is that for most of my life I have had to wear flip-flops and skateboarding is simply not as comfortable as I would like. Whether it’s because of the material or the shape of the sole, finding a skate that really fits my foot and feels great is harder than you think. That was definitely the case at least until I found SUAVS.
SUAVS Vortex Slide This is without a doubt the most comfortable pair of slides I have ever tried in my life. SUAVS is a footwear brand that has several popular types of shoes including popular knit sneakers, The Zilkers. However, the hidden gem of the entire collection is the Eddy Slipway using the finest breathable fabrics that SUAVS is famous for with its supportive yet comfortable texture.
Vortex slide Made with 100% post-consumer recycled plastic that’s woven into a digital knit allowing for an extremely breathable feel on your feet as you wear them. What’s more, the entire slide is made with exclusive sustainable materials, so if you’re a more environmentally conscious shopper, buy yourself a pair with peace of mind.
It would be easy to list the many great features slides have, including the fact that they are completely machine washable and can be laid flat together for easier packing, but the most important factor is: What matters most to me is simply how they feel. Vortex slide features a textured base made with the same moisture-wicking recycled material as well as cushioning foam. When it comes to slides, I’m telling you right now that the textured sole can feel better than any other footwear I’ve worn to this point. At the same time, despite living in the wet swamps of a New York summer, my feet are perfectly cool and comfortable. This is especially remarkable because every hot day in the city feels like I’m walking through boiling molasses.
So many shoe brands sell their own slides. Most of them simply have the logo glued on top and are made from some horrible mix of plastic and rubber that stick to your foot and really only act as a last resort footwear option. With SUAV Eddy Slide, it’s clear that real manual work was put into crafting them. It looks like the company has spent as much time making them as it has for any other pair of shoes it sells. Honestly, just try them out and I doubt you’ll wear different slides again.
