You can pick up scuff pads to stick on the bottoms of your shoes, or, even easier, you could use some sand paper to scuff the soles.

  • scratch the soles with sandpaper
  • you can buy a silicone coating to apply
  • take them to a shoe repair shop and they will attach a ribbed sole

They actually make something for this exact problem- they are like little grippy stickers that go on the bottom of your shoes.  I used to buy them when I did pageants (don’t judge me haha) and just went searching for them in stores a couple months ago when a slippery pair of wedges almost sent me to my death. 

I found them at DSW, but I bet you can find them on Amazon too.  The ones I have are called SOFSOLE SURE STEP. (Yes, “SofSole” no T)

I always go outside on concrete in my shoes and do the twist a couple of times to give me some better traction on them.

Simplyjess:  sandpaper rubbed on the bottom so they aren’t so smooth

 

Stores also sell the grip things that you can put on the bottom of your shoes.

Simplyjess:  forgot to add:

foot petals sole stoppers sold at Nordstrom or zappos.com

Target and Walmart both have similar products!

If you have a glue gun you can just glue little lines on the bottom of your shoe, like on kiddie socks 😉

saw it on Pinterest.

Have you ever heard of shoe/sole roisin?  When I recently got new jig shoes, one of the other dancers in my class let me use this to rub the bottoms of my soles to help with slippage.  Worked like a charm.

Simplyjess:  Scuff up the bottoms with sandpaper- I do this for all of my dress shoes.  Wear them around the house to break them in too- take note of where you put most of your weight and really scrub up that part of the bottom of your shoe.  You could also walk around on pavement/driveway, but if you don’t want to risk getting them dirty, just go with sandpaper indoors
