Take a piece of sandpaper and sand off the bottom a little. It will stop the sliding.

They also sell stick-on sheets so that they won’t be slippery. Check a local shoe store, CVS, or even Marshall’s has them a lot of the time.

You can buy at Target/Wal-mart or at any shoe store these stick on things for the bottom of shoes that have a sandpaper grit like to them. They usually come in packs of like 2 pairs.

I always stick Sure Treads, or a similar product, onto the bottom of slippery dress shoes and I’ve never had any issues.

Here’s a link to them on Amazon but I’ve found them at Wal-Mart, KMart, JCPenney, etc.

ETA: Apparently, I was too slow with my post. 🙂

@MsBrewer: It is just that easy. Unless they are Louboutins- then I would look for another solution.

You can also get a no slip solution to spray on the sole shoe repair places

@Sassygrn: Yes, these are GREAT!  I nearly killed myself on a pair of shoes and found these, they’re a life saver…

and yup, by the shoe inserts/shoe laces/polish area

You can do sand paper or you can wear your shoes outside and sand on the sidewalk.  I always do this for any of my shoes.

You can get heart shaped sand-paper like sticky things for the bottom of your shoes also. They’re like the ones the previous posters have mentioned except they’re hearts, they’d be really cute in photos! They’re called Heartstoppers and you can order them here: http://www.summersoles.ca/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66&products_id=182&zenid=9cbf66df602b97d9ba9a6b6436e599b9

Mrs. Frozen Yogurt actually wrote a post on this issue which can be found here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/02/22/shoe-accessories/

What sort of sole are they? Leather or suede can be fixed by merely getting them wet

@banana_anna: This. I always just wear mine outside and grind the soles against the sidewalk until they’ve worked up some texture.
