Here, had to look this up
Any outsole will be slippery in any material, it is the grooving and siping that provides traction. Does two things, provides an irregular surface to deform the surface, aka ground, you are walking or to match/mate up to the roughness of a surface, cement sidewalk, road, you are walking on. Grooving,siping, patterns provides a channel of liquids to move, squirt out from the contact points, to allow surface-surface contact aka sole to ground. This is why car tire slicks are illegal on the streets. They perform well on a clean surface, but any water will film over the contact surface. I ride slicks on a bicycle, excellent traction, who can not get enough speed up to hydroplane, but mud on say a stell plate covering a hole, slick as can be. Flip flops get very slippery when you wear down their tread pattern. I have a pair of Quicksilver flip flops, the pattern on the bottom is deep writing, words like QuickSilver, block like design heavily craved in from and back. Interestly I find these flip flops provide excellent grip and the soles do not wear down easily. However, thick creamy mud on a sidewalk overloads the pattern.
