Casper Prefers The Term ‘Slides’ Over ‘Sandals’
Our latest social media poll let me know how out of touch I really am with current fashion.
Is there an age gap when it comes to fashion? As a father of one adult, three teens and and assortment of younger ages, I can tell you from firsthand experience, the answer is a resounding yes! Even in the rare cases when we agree on styles, the younger generation is very quick to correct my vernacular.
We recently asked our listeners what do you call the footwear shown above: slides or sandals? The masses stated the correct terminology was "slides".
To further support the slides argument's validation, both Adidas and Nike have the shoes listed on their respective websites as slides. If you were to dive further into the definition, it appears all slides are technically sandals, but not all sandals are slides.
My head hurts now.
