Solution for Shoes that Slip


I have a new pair of low heeled pumps that I like very much and seem to fit well except for the fact that they slip on my heels. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Get some moleskin (Dr. Scholl's, in the foot care section or from a shoe repair place) and line the heel. That may help. (06/08/2005)

similar to the moleskin idea but cheaper, try putting
full size band-aids on the inside of the heal of the shoe. you can build it up to the best fit and they wont cause blisters because of the padding. my sister taught me this when she worked as a shoe sales person in order to get a person to buy a shoe that didn't fit just perfect or because the customer had 2 different size feet or they were out of the customers regular size. you can save a great deal of money this way if you find a perfect pair of shoes on clearance that are just 1/2 size too big. another trick she taught me was to put crumpled up newspaper in the toe of the shoe which forces the food to sit further back against the heel cup.

Dr. Scholls makes some pads specifically for this problem. They are near the moleskin at the store, but they are gray pads. I think they work better than moleskin or band-aids, although they do cost a bit more. (06/09/2005)

My local Walmart sells "heel grips", 2 in a package, for .99. They are in the shoe department, on the rack with sholeaces, heel covers, etc. They have peel-off adhesive backing, and the part your heel touches looks sort of like Velcro -- I have never yet gotten a snag in my stockings from using them.

I have a pair of shoes that my mother bought for me, and they were what I would consider quite expensive. The guy at the shoe store told me that to prevent shoes from slipping at the heal, the thing that you DON'T want to do is put pads at the heal: what he recommended was a pad for the ball of the foot. You can find these in most drug stores, and even in some grocery stores that have areas where they sell first aid and personal type supplies. Putting those pads in the heel pushes your foot forward, and that's precisely the type of thing that can make people develop corns. What this does it is tighten the space at the toe. A ball of the foot pad simply raises the ball of the foot a bit, and pushes your foot forward, but without squeezing your toes in the process. You can put one or more of these pads in your shoe, depending on how many it takes to fix the problem, without making the shoe too tight in the toe. It's actually a nice way to go, because no one can see what you have done. You also don't have to worry about whether the ball of the foot pad will come out. It is stuck to the inside of the shoe with a tape that is on the back. You don't put it all the way to the toe, but just beyond where the arch of the shoe is. It worked quite well for me!
