Have you ever been caught slipping out of your heels? Or is it your heel slipping in – or out of – your shoes?
Many shoe hacks exist to help with this problem, but Shoe tape has a better solution: tacking the heel of your foot directly into your shoes to keep them in place!
And they’ve recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the initial production of their patented and one-of-a-kind double sided shoe tape for heels and flats.
I got to try out this cool shoe accessory before it hit stores, and we’re giving away two pairs of Sticky Shoes to two lucky readers. Yes, you’ll be among the first ladies or gentlemen to get your hands and feet on them!
Sticky Shoes Double Sided Shoe Tape
Why use Sticky Shoes?
Sticky Shoes is a handy shoe fix that prevents your foot from slipping out of your heels or flats while strutting, reducing the risk of tripping, slipping, and looking like an inexperienced heel wearer!
Even when wearing the correct shoe size, heels can easily slip out of shoes that are too big, have very high heels, or do not fit your foot properly.
Okay, so you’re probably thinking that fashion tape, or as it’s more colloquially known, flash tape, already exists to keep clothing on the skin. You know, to avoid nip slips and other fashion disasters (think JLo’s green Versace Grammy gown from 2000!).

What makes Sticky Shoes different?
To begin with, there is no product on the market that is specifically designed to keep heels in shoes. Which, when you think about it, is rather surprising.
I mean, Jessica Alba famously stated that her go-to fashion fix for heel slippage is off-the-shelf double-sided tape from Staples. And that was in 2012!
Sticky Shoes heel tape is made with the shoe and foot in mind. It has many features that standard double-sided clothing or paper tape do not have.
Sticky Shoes Special Features:
- Designed specifically for the shoe heel, this rounded shape
- Made with a strong dual-sided adhesive that will last for several wears
- Tab for simple release
- Your shoes will not be harmed.
- Design with a patent
Uses for Sticky Shoes
Sticky Shoes is a versatile product that works well with both heels and flats. It enables you to:
- Feel comfortable walking in any pair of shoes on any terrain.
- With ease, walk up and down the stairs.
- In stilettos and pumps, keep your posture upright and poised.
- All day, stay calm and steady on your feet.
Sticky Shoes can also be used for:
- Every woman who has one foot that is slightly larger than the other.
- Shoes that allow your feet to dangle slightly out the back
- Shoes that you can’t seem to find the perfect fit for or that don’t come in half sizes
How Sticky Shoes Double-Sided Shoe Tape works
It’s really easy. Simply peel off the white tab to reveal the first adhesive side. Firmly press this sticky part onto the shoe’s heel.
Then, remove the brown tab to reveal the hypoallergenic sticky surface that adheres to your foot. Put on your heels. Voilà!
To remove them, simply lift the transparent tab to release the tape.
And they’re effective! I tried on a pair of the gold platform pumps shown in this post. When I walk, these heels tend to slip off my heels.
Sticky Shoes helped my soles stay in place, making them much easier to walk in! There was no residue when I took them off a day or so later, nor did my insole peel off. Woot!
Sticky Shoes is also ideal for slingbacks, mules, and flats that don’t fit well around the heel. You could even put them under the balls of your feet to keep your toes from sliding into the front of your shoe. So many responsibilities, so little time!
On the brand’s Kickstarter page, you can read about the mother/daughter team behind the product and how they came up with the idea of Sticky Shoes.
