Slides can be traced back to Ancient Rome. Though they are often thought to come from as far back as Ancient Egypt or Ancient Greece, there is a lack of documentation to further prove that. The popularity of slides in the United States started in the late 1960s, when vibrant, colourful aesthetics, such as cheery flower motifs, were followed. Across the world in Germany the brand Birkenstock created the first fitness slide, a simple design made from contoured cork with a single buckled leather strap. Another German company, Adidas invented the well-known Adilette pool slide. Nowadays we’re 100% you’ll find a pair of sliders in every household.
