Favourite Anti Slip Shoe Soles

New leather soles can be lethal, especially on slippery tiles and wet metal surfaces. When I was last in Antibes, I purchased a pair of sandals at the French shoe store/brand Minelli. The kind shop woman asked me if I also wanted self adhesive anti slip patches attached to the soles of my shoes. Such a brilliant concept, I immediately said yes!

Now Minelli has opened a shop-in-shop in Steen & Strøm in Oslo where they also sell their anti slip soles. They come in two sizes — heels and flats — and two colours — black and nude.

Mum and I treated ourselves to new sandals in the amazing Mango sales (50 % off all sandals and lots of great styles to choose from), but the leather soles made them so slippery — I was basically skating around the store.

While mum ran another errand, I went over to Steen & Strøm and picked up a pair of outer soles for each of us. They were only Nok 69 and make walking a totally safe experience. Too bad they can’t do anything about the blisters from my gorgeous new but very stiff sandals, but that’s just me being greedy…

Minelli is the only store in Oslo that I know of that carries these anti slip soles, but I also found some online at eBay and Deal Extreme (the latter ships for free to Norway). Please let me know in the comments section if you know of any other stores that carry these, so I can update this post and more people can share the joy.

Have a wonderful day and a gorgeous July 4th to all my US readers!

    Alle skomakere kan legge gummisåler under skoene dine. Da tåler de å brukes hvis været er vått også 🙂

    • Hei Sonja! Ja, jeg får vanligvis skomakeren til å legge gummisåler på sko med skinnsåler som jeg ønsker å bruke hele året. Sandalene spanderer jeg ikke dette på, derimot — de vil jeg bare at ikke skal være så glatte. Ha en fin dag! xoxo Anett

  • Ha! I know exactly what you mean and I now rarely buy shoes that don’t have a bit more grip to the sole. I’ve done the same thing in the past to my dresser shoes that had smooth bottoms. These are lovely sandals, by the way.

    • Thanks for your comment, Paperesse! Where did you get your anti slip soles from? You are right, some dressiers shoes have really slippery soles, dangerous for dancing. At my friend’s 50th birthday party I didn’t want to fall in my slippery shoes so I danced barefoot in my tights — and fell twice! 😉 xoxo Anett

      • I found mine at the shoe repair shop I use and in a larger department store’s shoe paraphernalia section (you know, with the laces, insoles, etc.). I didn’t worry about this in the States, but shortly after I moved to France, long ago, I was walking down a sloping street on cobblestones when my feet slid right out from under me! Luckily I wasn’t hurt, but since then I’ve worked most of the slick soled shoes out of my wardrobe except for a few dressy pair. Ouch…I hope you didn’t hurt yourself at the party!

        • Thanks for letting me know! Cobbelstones can be dangerous, as they are polished smooth by years of weather and people’s feet. Luckily, I just bounced back up again and continued dancing — I’ve got quite a bit of cushioning on my bum! 😉

        • Thanks for letting me know! Cobbletones can be dangerous, as they are polished by years of weather and people’s feet. Luckily, I just bounced back up again and continued dancing — I have a fair bit of cushioning on my bum!
