Is the sticker residue on the arch of the foot where it won’t wear off with use?

Goo Gone is very oily so I’d be careful not to get any of it on the fabric. Nail polish remover is probably safest (and more potent than rubbing alcohol) but make sure the color of the shoe won’t bleed if some remover does get on it.

I am an expert at this!! LOL My secret is PEANUT BUTTER!!!

I do these on every pair of shoe (even my expensive Louboutins!!)

She waited 2 – 5 minutes and says its getting “crusty” LOL I usually only wait 1 minute and it still works.

Peanut butter! Because it’s more solid but still oily, it is easier to ensure that it only goes where you want it to go.

You could always apply the other things with a Q-tip so the application is exact.

@jls517:  Your shoe has a porous sole?!

Eventually (and rpretty quickly_ that sticky spot will take up enough dirt that it will no longer be sticky. If it were me, i’d use a little organic solvent, like acetone (nail polish remover), ethanol (in the first air section) or isopropanol (traditional rubbing alcohol). Any of those should work.

@jls517:  I think if it’s a leather sole shoe, peanut butter will still work.  Just make sure to wipe it clean (maybe with a paper towel and then baby wipes).  When you said porous, I was thinking fabric (like bunny slippers LOL).
