I have had shoes with no traction left on the bottom of my shoes. This can be very dangerous for falls. Just add some hot glue dots to the bottom, and this will give you traction.

There's a pad you can buy in shoe stores. It's made of cork and goes in the front of your shoe. They work great but the don't last very long. The other day at a grocery store I saw something on the shoe accessories rack that had a name like "slipstop". It was an insole that said it would keep your foot from slipping around inside your shoe. They were horrible colors though: lime green, tangerine, etc.... Maybe they're not meant for open shoes. Check it out anyway, maybe where you live you can find them in better colors. Good luck, those shoes are gorgeous!
Or a cheap alternative if you have a hot glue gun is to put some hot glue where the ball of your foot goes.
It will after a while rub off in bits, but it is easy enough to replace.
Try Sizers! They are little foam inserts which re-size your shoes so that they fit perfectly. Ideal for half sizes (like me) or loose shoes.
Check out their website www.shoesizers.com where you can buy some.
