4 Life Hacks to Give Your Footwear a Better Grip. No More Pratfalls on Slippery Sidewalks

Icy sidewalks – the nightmare of anyone walking to work in the winter, when remaining in the vertical position is hell of a challenge. Fortunately, there are some easy tricks to prevent our sensitive bodies from really painful falls.


To prevent slipping, you need to give your shoes a better grip. There are a few ways you can do that:

#1 Hair spray

First rub the soles of your shoes with sandpaper. Then apply the hair spray.

#2 Plasters

Stick a standard plaster (or a dressing pad) onto the sole. Remember that they have to be placed across the sole, not along it.


#3 Silicon or glue

Get some transparent silicon or glue. Make a few random patterns on the soles. They will let you stay steady as you walk.



#4 Stickers and covers

Shoe stores offer a number of dedicated non-slip stickers or covers. They are made of an elastic material and rubber. They also have some small spikes that improve the grip.


Team spirit and carefulness are always an asset
