Simply Fab: Apara Grippy Steps

Have you ever worn a pair of fierce heels but was scared you'd slip and fall? Been there, actually done that (and have the scar to prove it). It's not fun slipping around while struttin' your stuff. Check Miley Cyrus posing confident at the 2008 Kids' Choice Awards. You'd never know she has on a pair of Grippy Steps by Apara ($8), to keep her heels from sliding in the wrong direction. These sticky contractions simply stick to the bottom of your soles and prevent any awkward moments from happening. Now that's a quick fix!

A much cheaper alternative is available at any hardware store. Go get the 3M tape that people use to stick on ladders and outdoors steps to give them traction. It's kind of like black sandpaper, but it comes on a roll with adhesive on the back. You can cut the tape to conform to any part of your shoe, which is nice, and it works wonders. My dad used to put this on the bottoms of my dress shoes when I was a little girl. Why do shoe companies think we don't need traction?

If the bottoms of my shoes are smooth in the last, I slip and fall no matter what! I buy a pair of these (just the kind at Walgreens) every time I buy a new pair of shoes.

LOVE these. They also make all sorts of shapes for inside your shoes...i.e., back of the heel, strap-shaped to keep strappy shoes from slipping, etc. They are fantastic! DSW usually carries them.

You could always use sandpaper on the bottom of the shoes... It's cheaper - doesn't look as nice, but over time your shoes will get like that anyway. It just speeds up the process.
