Spray Your Feet with Hairspray

Hairspray is a wondrous product. It has been shown to stop runs in stockings, kill bugs, removes lipstick from fabric and is a useful form of defense as a blind. We must also mention that when sprayed on your sandals and soles of your feet, it will make the two stick to each other like glue.

Making your shoes stay on your feet can be particularly stressful if you have narrow feet or heels. The following video shows how hairspray can change your life forever!

Get Your Own Personal Stylist

By hiring a personal stylist, you’ll get professional help to find shoes that are perfect for you.

The best alternatives online are Trunk Club and Stitch Fix. Both services are essentially free if you keep at least one of the products that you receive!

You can also measure your foot at home by printing out Nordstrom’s free foot measurer.

Stick Your Shoes to the Soles of Your Feet with Double-Sided Tape

The double-sided tape can be used to keep your feet and sandals together. However, the tape is clearly visible, and its adhesiveness wears off easily. This is on top of the fact that it may cause your feet to sweat excessively.

Jessica Alba swears by this method to keep her heels from slipping. The American actress and businesswoman told New York Magazine: ‘I stick every shoe to the bottom of my foot with double-stick tape.’

But unlike hairspray, double-sided tape is visible and becomes less sticky the more you release heat and sweat. Better keep a roll in your purse if you’re going to use this method.

Line Your Shoes with Cushions, Inserts, or Insoles

You’ll want to use ball-of-foot cushions so that your feet don’t slide down or move forward. Double up if you have to.

If your feet still slip out, place inserts where the back of your heels touches the shoes, or if you’re wearing sandals, place inserts on the heels as well.

Wear Tights with Built-In Sole Grips

Good news for those who must wear tights or just can’t go bare-legged: tights that have built-in nonslip soles now exist.

Stuff Your Shoes

This obviously only works for closed-toe shoes. Fill the toe box with newspaper or fabric so your feet really have no room to move around and slip forward.

Buy Shoes a Half Size Smaller

Only do this if you can stand the pain. We really don’t recommend this because although your shoes may not fall off initially, they could later on when they’ve been broken in.

Many from the Your Next Shoes community gave this advice, though, which goes to show how women are willing to suffer for the sake of fashion.

Change How You Walk

High heel veterans know this: there is a different walk for when you’re wearing heels. The strides are shorter, the feet are rigid, and your weight is mostly on the front of your feet.

Try a Different Shoe Style

If nothing works, it might be best to just go with a different shoe style. There are plenty of cute pumps with ankle straps, Mary Jane straps, and t-bars.

Flats come with elasticized backs, too, which not only make them fit more snugly but also make them rollable and portable.
