So, I know I have read something about this on here before, but cannot for the LIFE of me find the post… so I’m writing a new one!
I have small kitten heels for the wedding, which just came in the mail today… and I LOVE them, they are super cute, and not going to make me taller than FI! Problem is, a) I rarely wear heels, so even walking in these is a bit stressful (so Im walking around the house in the to figure it out! but, the biggest concern is that they are REALLY slippery, and have NO grip whatsoever on the bottom of the shoes.
What cna I add to my shoes to make them not quite so slippery??? I have a very long wodden aisle to walk down at the church, as well as hardwood or stone floors at the reception hall. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The little sticky pads are really cute, but really all you need to do is wear them in. Go take a short walk on a cement sidewalk. I’ve also read that you can take a knife and score the soles of your shoes, but I’ve never tried that.

I would wear them around a lot to lose some of the slippery finish, such as cement (like bmore recommended). If they are still slippery, I would get those stick on pads that go on the ball of the shoe…I have used them before and they work like a charm!

You can also sand the bottom of them with ordinary sandpaper if they do not roughen up on their own just wearing them around the house ahead of the wedding.

Back in college, I had won a few miss america preliminaries and before I’d go to the state pageant, my coach would have me walk outside on the driveway for five minutes in my high heels for evening gown and swimsuit. That would lightly scruff the bottoms but not too much and I never slipped once onstage wearing 4′ heels.
