Adidas slides

I’m craving Adidas shower slides.

You know, those rubber sandals with the Velcro strap and the classic Adidas stripes and the pokey insole that you can’t decide whether it’s a weird and unnecessary contraption or a brilliant personal foot massager… Yeah, those bad boys (bottom right).

I remember when I was but a young lass in camp, probably around 6th grade, the year must’ve been 2000, the new…
