Keeping Sandals from Slipping Off Your Feet

I'd like to know if anyone has found a solution (like an adhesive substance, etc.) to put on the insoles of slip-on sandals (slip-ons, not between the toes, just wrap around top of feet). I've had this problem forever with this style, much as I love them.

My GF just bought me these 100.00 pair of very nice leather slip-ons, they are beautiful, with great soles, etc., but they will not stay put! Every step they just want to fling off out front. Tragic. I was thinking maybe rubber cement, spray-mount (yikes), or God knows what. Mayne I could stick rubber strips in between as I put them on (shims)? Whatever. If anyone has solved this centuries-old problem, please write!

Thanks.

You could try double-sided tape.

I have not used these (two links at bottom), but I have friends that swear by things like this thing... They are expensive.

I gave up on sandals several years ago as I can't drive in them and have issues walking in them...I am old...I wear old lady moccasins...they are comfy...but they make me sad sometimes as I loved open shoes. Safety first though! I would like my hips to last me for a long time!

Perhaps adhesive shoe insert petals, dots, or masking tape?

But they won't look as nice whichever option you end up finding. Is it really comfortable or just the brand?

I think bathtub anti-slip decals should work.

Perhaps those anti-skid strips that are put on stairs or bathtubs would help. Just a thought. Good luck!

I asked a friend what she used and she said hair-spray!

I have heard of using double-sided tape and inserts but using hair spray is a new one for me. Then I looked it up and sure enough it is one of the solutions suggested.

I like the cushions for the balls and even under the heel as they feel good and seem to do the trick for me.
