Sugru sliding sock fix (executed at Omaha Makers' Group-OMG)Low-cut socklets, the kind that look like little ballet slippers, are so cut--up until you discover they only stay up for about 20 steps; and then the backs end up under your arches--very frustrating!  Walk, stop, remove sock, pull up sock, replace shoe, repeat, repeat, repeat. Enter Sugru!  Materials/supplies: 1 pair low-cut, no-show socks, SUGRU, Styrofoam block, straight pins, safety pin, fingers.

Step 1:

Step 1:  Pin socks to foam, inside up, heel portion flat, remainder of socks out of the way.

Step 2:

Step 2:  Take a nickel-sized gob of Sugru, roll into a ball, and flatten into oblong shape.

Step 3:

Step 3:  Press sugru into fabric at inside back of socks, spreading to about 1.5" to about 3/4" high.

Step 4:

Step 4: Add texture.   (I used a closed safety pin)

Step 5:

Step 5:  Allow to cure 24 hours.  (Optional:  If sugru has pulled away from sock, secure loose edges with needle and thread.)
that sounds neat, but could you explain in your instructable how this prevents socks from slipping?
The Sugru I had was not a tacky as I expected, so it didn't work all that well. If all Sugru is like this, it's not as useful as I had hoped.<br>Next time I will use Dip-It. I know that stuff is good.
