Repairing Dearfoam Slipper Soles

I have a favorite pair of fuzzy Dearfoam slippers given to me several years ago that are made with a cloth sole. I have worn through the soles, but haven't figured out what to use to adhere to these cloth soles to allow for more wear. Surely there's some material that I can attach (glue?) as a sole. Any ideas? I've bought other slippers, but can't find anything that I enjoy wearing more than these. Inquiries to Dearfoam go unanswered.

You could probably iron on a patch. However, my experience has shown that worn out soles are slippery and dangerous. You might want to invest in another pair.

A while ago, I got desperate and repaired mine with a bit of epoxy and patchwork, but like Judy says, it became very dangerous. I hurt my ankle. I wouldn't suggest patching things like shoes.

This can be done but, as stated, be sure you also do something to make the slippers NOT slippery.

Here is a site that does show how to do this (and it can be done) but you may want to check out different types/thicknesses of felt at a craft or sewing store.

I never replaced slipper soles before and I understand the pair you have had for several years, but for your new pair/heads up as a reference they have 1 year warranty: www.dearfoams.com/warranty.html
