Which shoes do not slip?

First, let's find out which shoes do not slip. For this, when choosing shoes, pay attention to its sole. Your shoes will not be slippery if:

  • on the sole there is a high tread pattern;
  • the surface of the sole is convex and porous
  • the sole is well rubberized.

If you got an unhappy ticket, and you still bought slippery shoes, or if your old shoes are stalled and become slippery, do not rush to get upset. There are many proven ways that will give you a sense of solid ground under your feet.

"People's" methods

Glue and sand (or Glue and sandpaper)

Apply the glue "Moment" to the sole and until it withers, put the shoes in the sand, squeeze a little. Leave to dry. In the case of sandpaper, cut out the pieces and glue them to the soles of the toe and heel areas. Instead of "Moment" you can also use epoxy glue.

One of the most popular, but least short-term ways to combat slippery shoes. Take a wide coil of plaster on a cloth basis and glue it to the sole crosswise. To make the patch less noticeable when walking, paint it with a black alcohol marker.

Old stockings

Set fire to the old nylon stocking and pour the melting capron on the sole. As a result, small, spine-like tubercles are formed. The procedure must be repeated three times a season.

Hot Soldering Iron

Using a hot soldering iron make notches on the sole. Unfortunately, the integrity of the sole can not be restored, but the method is fast and effective.

Water-repellent means

Apply a water-repellent shoe protection to the soleplate. This will make the sole less wet, and therefore less slippery. I note that the same tool you can use when the leg slides in the shoes.

Air for shoes
