Have you ever caught yourself slipping out of your heels? 

Many hacks exist to help solve this shoe dilemma, but Sticky Shoes has a better solution: tacking the heel of your foot directly into your shoes, in order to make them stay put!

And they’ve recently landed on Kickstarter to fund the initial manufacturing of their patented & uniquely designed double sided shoe tape for heels & flats.

I got to test out this nifty shoe accessory before it’s even hit stores & we’re offering up 2 sets of Sticky Shoes to 2 lucky readers. Yep, you’ll be some of the first gals or guys to get your hands & feet on them!

Why use Sticky Shoes?

Sticky Shoes is a handy shoe fix to prevent your foot from slipping out of your heels or flats while you strut, reducing the risk of tripping, slipping & looking like an amateur heel wearer! Heels can easily slip out of shoes that are too big, have very high heels, or in shoes that may not fit your foot quite right, even when wearing the correct shoe size.

Ok, so you’re probably thinking that fashion tape or more aptly named flash tape already exists to keep clothing onto the skin. You know, in order to prevent nip slips & similar fashion catastrophes (think JLo’s green Versace Grammy dress from 2000!).

What makes Sticky Shoes different?

Well, for starters there is no product on the market specifically designed to keep heels in shoes. Which is rather surprising when you think about it. I mean, Jessica Alba famously stated she relies on off-the-Staples-rack double sided tape as her go-to fashion fix for heel slippage. And this was back in 2012!

Sticky Shoes shoe tape for heels is designed with the shoe and foot in mind. It has many features that regular double sided clothing or paper tape do not. .

Double Sided Tape for Heels

Sticky Shoes Special Features:

  • Rounded shape designed specifically for the shoe heel
  • Made with strong dual-sided adhesive last a few wears
  • Easy release tab
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non damaging to your shoes.
  • Patented design

How Sticky Shoes Double-Sided Shoe Tape works

It’s really simple. Just peel off the white tab, exposing the first adhesive side. Press this sticky part firmly onto the heel of the shoe. Then pull off the brown tab to expose the hypoallergenic sticky surface that adheres to your foot. Put your heels on. Voilà!

To take them off, simply lift the transparent tab to lift off the tape.

And these work! I tested a pair out in the gold platform pumps you see in this post. These heels tend to slip off my heels when I walk. Sticky Shoes really helped my soles stay put, making them so much easier to walk in! When I took them off a day or so later, there was no residue, nor did my insole peel off. Woot!

Sticky Shoes is also perfect for sling-backs, mules & flats that don’t hold the foot well around the heel area. Heck you could even use them under the balls of the foot to keep your toes from sliding into the front of the shoe. So many functions, so little time!

  1. I tighten the shoes if possible, otherwise I just change shoes. lol

  2. I usually put a insole in them but this tape seems to look like it will do the trick even better

  3. I’ve tried a Dr Scholls heel thingie but it doesn’t work well and it makes your shoes look hideous. They’re impossible to take out!

  4. I’ve always tried the heal things – they’ve never truly worked for me though.

  5. I’ve used bandaids in the past, but they often come off when walking any sort of distance, so annoying!

    I use bandaids. Not very pretty and they usually come off pretty fast.

  7. I usually just use medical tape on my skin to prevent a blister, which doesn’t solve the problem at all.

  8. Bailey Dexter Reply

    I use a full shoe insoles when my heels slop & this is not always the most comfortable as the toes get tight!

  9. Cindy Peterson Reply

    When my heels slip I usually put a pad on the sole of my foot so my foot can’t slid into the shoes. This is not as effective as a sticky shoe! Why didn’t someone come up with this sooner.

  10. I don’t have a solution. I just try to wear them, or I don’t by them if they slip! This sounds brilliant!

    Love Sticky Shoes, I use them in all of my heels and it is really nice to have your shoes stay in place when you are dancing!

    • Yes, so true! I was thinking using them in mules too. The shoe constantly tapping on my heels when I’m walking drives me insane (and why I barely ever wear mules lol!).So glad you like the pics xoxox

  12. Daniela Plume Reply

    I’ve tried bandaids, cotton balls, & kleenex but nothing has worked.

  13. I put cotton balls in the heel to try and make them “smaller” – doesn’t work!! :/

    • I’ve heard of people doing that, actually! Thought it would work as it seems so popular. Thanks for the feedback 🙂
