Product Code: SULOFRI

These super-low-friction (SULOFRI) high-tech stick-on soles can be attached to the existing soles of most dance shoes, street shoes, and exercise shoes*, to optimize the shoes' friction characteristics for dancing. The SULOFRI kit allows dancers to pivot with ease on extremely high-friction dance floors such as concrete and asphalt, and most carpets.

The SULOFRI kit uses super-low-friction components made of a space-age material and offers much less resistance to pivoting and linear sliding than our standard low-friction products (LOFRI-04 and LOFRI-DIY). It is also the only product that works real well on concrete and asphalt. Indeed, on those difficult surfaces pivoting is just as easy as it is with suede soles on well-maintained wood floors. However, the super-low-friction material is soft and wears out very quickly on those abrasive surfaces. For example, active dancers can wear out their super-low-friction components in as little as 6 hours of dancing on rough concrete (actual wear rate depends strongly on surface, dance style, and the dancer's weight).

Dancing on concrete and asphalt, outdoors
SULOFRI is primarily intended for dancing on concrete or asphalt outdoors and it is shipped configured for these types of surfaces. SULOFRI should not be used on any smooth, hard indoor floors (e.g., tiles, wood) since it is extremely slippery. Use SULOFRI only on concrete or asphalt and on most carpets.

Dancing on carpet
SULOFRI can be used for dancing on carpet. However, since there are tens of different materials, from which carpets are made, we cannot guarantee the suitability of SULOFRI soles for your particular carpet. On most carpets SULOFRI works well, but on some it may be too slippery.

Dancing on sticky indoor floors

For sticky indoor dance floors, we recommend our LOFRI-04 or
LOFRI-DIY products.

All components of this kit are backed by industrial-strength, dual-sided adhesive and they are ready to be affixed to shoes (see instructions under SUPPORT > How to affix).

What's included:
There are eight main components in this kit:
  • 2x large super-low-friction disks.
  • 2x super-low friction toe patches.
  • 2x super-low friction side patches (use these as replacements if your toe patches wear out, or attach them next to the large disks, on shoes that are much wider than the large disks).
  • Superglue Gel - use per instructions, especially for non-flat soles or soles with a curvature. Also useful for minor repairs, if needed.
  • 2-page, full color instructions and usage tips (also downloadable here).
  • Colors: All super-low friction components are white or light gray.

* Notes:
In order to use this product on running shoes or most other fitness shoes, all of which usually have aggressive (i.e., knobby) sole profiles, we strongly recommend purchasing our PERM Permanent Conversion Kit in addition to the SULOFRI kit. The PERM kit includes thin but smooth "base-soles" that users glue (with the included ultra-strong Superglue gel) permanently to the soles of their shoes, thereby providing an optimal surface, to which the SULOFRI product will securely adhere to.

Dire Warning: This product is intended to substantially reduce friction of dance shoes on rough outdoor floors like concrete and asphalt. Walking or dancing on smooth and clean tile, wood, or other hard floors while wearing this product dramatically increases the risk of slipping and falling. Walking on wet or slippery floors when wearing this product can be almost as hazardous as walking on ice with regular shoes.

Super-low-friction soles December 12, 2018
Reviewer: Jeffrey Kelly from Corvallis, OR United States  
I'm a Taijiquan teacher and one of the spaces where I teach is covered with a textured martial arts mat.  .I prefer to wear shoes but the rubber soles prevented me from moving properly and caused a lot of lower body joint pain. I tried cotton soled slippers, socks, even bare feet but nothing worked. On Johann's advice I tried the low friction soles. The tread on my shoes is pretty deep but once I liberally applied extra Super Glue they stayed on and have remained in place with no problem. They are the perfect solution. I'm able to step and pivot with no problem and there is enough exposed rubber to prevent falling. Hovever, as Johann rightly advises, do not wear them off the mat. Just stepping on carpet with one foot was scary enough.  Shipping is fast, the detailed instructions were extremely helpful and the soles are top quality.  I will certainly purchase them again when needed and recommend them to all me students.

Soles2Dance let you dance outside on Concrete August 23, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Saint Charles, IL United States  
These work great. We love to dance but it was always a bit difficult outside on concrete or asphalt. These turn a pair of tennis shoes into dance shoes. Thanks

Good Product February 23, 2018
Reviewer: FRANCES ROSATO from LINDENHURST, NY United States  
Bought these to convert street shoes to dance shoes that could be worn off the dance floor as well.  So far so good. Using them for a pair of dress shoes that won't have to take too much outside walking but where suede would be ruined.

Works great. December 10, 2017
Reviewer: CACY from New Kent, VA United States  
This is an amazing product.  My husband and I do most of our dancing on hardwood floors, but sometimes there are occasions where that isn't available.  We have used these super low friction soles, to dance in a Christmas parade, at summer dance parties, on the Duke of Gloucester Street, in Williamsburg,  VA, and concrete loading pads at wine festivals.  These soles allow us to dance, almost as if we were in a dance studio.

Spin City June 26, 2017
Reviewer: Garry Endres from Champlin, MN United States  
These work best w/ Perm-Sheet on athletic shoes. 1st time applied is a general guess as to where the wear will occur, but you can plainly see where to apply the next set you purchase. (And you WILL purchase another set when you see how good your knees feel.) Spinning is a breeze on concrete.
