Re: Fix for shoes with slippery bottom

@ECBG 

 

Brilliant!

 

I will look for them.

 

As it turned out, the shoes I intended to wear to this event remained in my closet. 

 

I ended up wearing a closed toe flat Cat Very Happy

 

It was at a winery, up a long set of wooden steps with gravel in between.  And the road leading from the parking lot was gravel.  Once inside, it was a flat surface, but getting there was a bit of a challenge.

 

I'm not up for navigating gravel, in heels, not to mention the wear and tear on my shoes.

 

But, these will be perfect for the next time I'm on solid footing!

 

Thanks for the visual!

@Witchy Woman So glad I could help.Smiley Happy

 

If an edge should get lose, just put a little Gorilla glue under it with a toothpick.

 

I know a lot about shoes since my fam had the largest fine shoe store in town for over 60 years.  I learned about beautiful leathers (LOVE the smell of leather) and have always loved shoes!

If the shoes are very expensive it is worth taking to cobbler to have the bottom protected and add a non-slip sole protector too.

I step out on our cement patio and dance the Twist.  Roughs up the smooth sole, no more slip and its free.
