slingback heel issues

I really love the look of slingbacks on evening pumps but is it just me or does anyone else have the same issues with the slingbacks always sliding down as you walk in them? It's makes me fustrated when i wear them cuz often i'd have to stop and adjust them quite often. If i tighten the straps then it just makes my feet fall closer to the front which makes them more uncomfortable to wear.

Get some of those gel pads that you put at the ball of your feet-  the rubbery texture will help your feet grip onto the shoe and prevent it from sliding forward.  Also makes them more comfy  =)

Thanks aching! :) Are the straps guaranteed to not slip w/ the added foot petal strips? Also after a couple of wears do the petal strips start to fall off?

I have this problem too!  I hate walking around places and having to pull the slingback up because it keeps sliding off.  Thanks for the suggestion, aching!  I never knew these strips existed!

Sorry, I haven't actually tried them myself!  But I've used other Footpetals products and they've been great, so I definitely think these would be worth a try!
