I love getting new heels, but sometimes the insole is just a bit too slippery. Especially if you're wearing stockings or pantyhose.

With this quick mod, you can make your favorite heels a bit more stable in 10 minutes using only some scrap fabric and spray adhesive. So quit worrying and start walking tall.

Step 1: Measure and make initial cuts

You will need some scraps of strong fabric that are at least the size of your feet. Don't go for anything silky or thin, as that will probably not make much of a change.  And don't go for a thicker fabric like felt, as that will alter the fit of the shoe. Pull a Goldilocks, and find a fabric that's just right.

This yellow fabric I found was about the thickness of tee-shirt cotton, but with a bit more texture. 

Using some chalk, a pencil, or a pen (if you don't care about the marks), roughly trace the outline of your foot.  Cut out.
<p>Dealing with this exact thing today! Got some gorgeous new heels for Christmas and the insoles are like crazy slick and my feet are sliding forward. Driving in I was trying to think of a way to make my own non slippery insole since I've tried everything on the market and they all fail. Great idea! I was thinking of using the non slip foam stuff that you put under rugs to keep them from slipping but wasn't sure about adhesive.</p>
Great mod, will be doing so myself. You're brave for posting. These instructables tend to bring out the creeps.
Laugh Out Loud. Your comment is right on the money, unfortunately.
This is so great! I would never have thought of it. I'm going to try this on all my slippery shoes. Thanks!
Nice idea. Could you just spray the entire insole and glue it on all at once instead of spraying it in two sections and risk getting glue onto the shoe?
this is excellent! I will definitely be trying this with my favourite shoes!<br>
Instuctables Thank you for your website here. <br> <br>Hot Damn, if your using you to model this instructable sesson. I say again &quot;HOT DAMN&quot; Youve Got Gorgeous Gams that wear those pantyhose and heals just so fine. I'd like to have seen a full body view aswell to see your Face aswell <br> <br> By the way a nice instrucable sesson here thank you. I'll never wear high heals like that being a guy myself. This still is a great sesson for gorgeous gams to see aswell!
what about using a anti-slip mat? - I think that could be quite comfy because it's soft--- hmmmm have to try it :)
I imagine it would be too thick, plus the waffle weave texture would probably get very uncomfortable faster than the bunny hop.
Brilliant Ible.. easy and there is a great need for this!!! would stop feet sticking to shiny insoles too.. a plus!
You could change step 3 and avoid the overspray to the shoe by spraying glue on the whole insole first, put some wax paper over if - it will not change the stickyness of the glue - and then remove the wax paper in small steps during installation in the shoe. Nice instructable!
beautifull legs..lovely woman ..
Obviously I am not the only one to have a thing for a beautiful woman with great legs.
I had to stop and read because of Your pretty legs :D <br> <br>Good idea with with this mod too, would help a lot for slippery high heels.
Thank you! I was going to give away a new pair of shoes. I was wondering if I could use sand paper to scratch the slippery insoles but this is a very good idea. Also wearing extra insoles was weird and uncomfortable. Gracias.
Super easy shoe mod! I will definitely use this next time I wear heels with stockings!
