Slick Shoes is a pop punk band with Christian origins from Southern California. They formed in 1994 and had their first release as a Self–Titled EP in 1997. They released 5 full length CDs, 4 of them on Seattle based Tooth and Nail Records. They also released an EP, a split with Autopilot Off and a "Best Of..." CD entitled The Biggest & The Best (featuring 3 previously unreleased songs). Their sound could be described as fast and melodic, occasionally with a rough–edged hardcore punk. The band name comes from the hit 1985 movie The Goonies from which the character Data exclaims, "I've got a great idea, you guys! Slick shoes!"

The band consists of founding member and singer Ryan Kepke and on Joe Nixon (drums) who played on every release. Jeremiah Brown (bass) played on all releases except their final release Far From Nowhere. This was their first release without Tooth and Nail Records, which they left not for religious reasons (the band's new guitarists were unashamedly not Christian) but merely because their contract was up and they felt the need for a change. They released the CD on punk label SideOneDummy Records in the summer of 2003.
