Style For Style: Slippery Soles and Soda

Not too long ago, I gave you a solution for slippery soles. As you're about to find out, there's more than one way to get rid of this issue and it doesn't involve spending a fortune. Because why pay money for the solution when the actual problem (i.e. these gorgeous Guess Pyramid Slingback Pumps, $120) are already pricey enough?

To see my solution for slippery soles,

You're looking at a can of 7UP because this, or any other soda, is what's going to help you get rid of your slippery soles. Just open the can, spill a little bit of the liquid on a cement ground or in a bowl, and lightly dip the soles of your shoes in it. Now you're good to go...without slippage!

The only downside to those Aldo patch things is they don't last a very long time. They wear off after a while, and you're left with the same slippery shoes you started with.

Oh that would have been perfect the other day with my suede mary janes. It poured like crazy and I almost slipped on the hardwood at my work!! Thanks Fab!

i just use the solution my mom taught me when i was a little girl - wear the new shoes outside and scuff around in them for a few minutes. of course, i don't have the heart to do that to my louboutins....

does it not make the shoes sticky and gross? like with hair and dust stuck to the bottom?

i like the shoes! and while i generally don't spend more than $100 on shoes, it's definitely a better price than the $500+ on a lot of them.
