Prom describes a type of footwear specially designed for prom night. Prom shoe styles vary widely in design and color, and their different styles can be chosen depending on the prom gown they are meant to complement. Still, the most common prom styles are generally ankle straps and slingback sandals with medium to high heels with shinny uppers or decorated with sparkling ornaments. Low heel thong sandals decorated with sparkling rhinestones are also a popular choice.
Slides are a sandal in which the upper does not extend to cover the heel of the foot. The wearer of slides can simply slip on the shoe without having to tie, strap, or buckle it to secure.
