Hey Eric! I too love my slides due to the easiness and confortabiltiy of them. An alternative I’ve thought of (disclaimer I haven’t done it yet, but plan to) are to buy slip on vans. I find vans extremely comfortable and as Kelly has talked about before they are a good casual shoe due to the flatness of them and the absence of a raised heels. I feel the slip on slide are just as easy to put on, go with a bunch of stuff, and the best alternative for your feet. They are also around 45 a won’t break the bank. Hope this may help.
