SUEDE-LA-PRO stick-on suede soles are intended for ladies' shoes with high heels. The versatile design is suitable to:
  • replacing worn-out suede soles on existing dance shoes,
  • turn your favorite pair of high heels into dance shoes,
  • adapt shoes to dance floors that are too slippery
The unique feature of the SUEDE-LA-PRO soles, compared to our other suede soles and, indeed, compared to any other suede-soled dance shoe in existence, is that SUEDE-LA-PRO soles are configurable for two types of dance floors:
  1. Studio-quality wood floors, where conventional suede soles work well on.
  2. Floors that are too slippery for conventional suede soles.
It is well known that suede soles are ideal for dancing on well-maintained and clean wood dance floors. However, some floors are too slippery for conventional suede soles, putting the dancer at risk of slipping and falling. SUEDE-LA-PRO soles can be configured to increase traction on such overly slippery floors. Moreover, through our patent-pending hybrid design, SUEDE-LA-PRO soles not only increase traction and thus resistance to slipping, but they do so without significantly increasing resistance to pivoting or turning moves. To highlight this point further, consider one of the many homebrewn remedies for slippery floors: wetting the existing suede soles with water or oil. These remedies do indeed increase resistance to slipping, but they also increase resistance to pivoting, thus making pivoting stressful for the dancer's knees and joints. These remedies can also render the existing suede soles useless as they soak up the water or oil permanently.

How to configure SUEDE-LA-PRO soles for dancing on overly slippery floors
Looking closely at the product photo above, one can see a circular perforation in the SUEDE-LA-PRO soles. This perforation allows users to easily cut out what we call the "suede disks," as those disks are held in place only by eight thin connectors that connect them to the main part of the sole. The connectors can be cut even if the soles have already been attached to dance shoes. After cutting the eight thin connectors with a utility knife or box-cutter, the suede disks can be removed. Then, the included industrial-strength double-sided adhesive is attached to the rubber disks, and the rubber disks are stuck into the circular void previously occupied by the suede disks. The soles are now configured for dancing on overly slippery floors. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes and can be performed "in the field," if the need arises (competition dancers, take note).

Reconfiguration
Users can switch back and forth between the suede disks and the rubber disks. However, after removing these disks once or twice, the self-adhesive backing of the disks will have become too weak to adhere well. In order to allow repeated removal and reattachment of these disks, we offer in the SUEDE SOLES ACCESSORIES section of our web store SUEDEPRO-3M reattachment disks. These are pairs of double-sided adhesive disks that can be used to reattach the suede or rubber disks as needed. In the same section we also offer spare suede disks (SUEDEPRO-SD) and rubber disks (SUEDEPRO-RD).

Other features of SUEDE-PRO soles
Compared to other add-on suede dance soles on the market, all our suede products have the advantage that they come with industrial-strength adhesive backing. Users only have to peel off the protective liner from the backing and stick the soles on. Our competitors' suede soles without adhesive backing require you to glue the soles on -- a messy and tricky procedure. You also have to buy that glue and learn how to apply it properly. None of that is necessary with our stick-on soles with industrial-strength adhesive backing.

Our suede soles are cut by a sophisticated, computer-controlled laser cutting machine that provides much greater precision than hand-cutting. As a result, we can show the exact dimensions of each sole on this product page, so you don't have to guess whether the soles will be large enough for your shoes. Laser cutting is also the only possible way of cutting the circular perforation into the soles.

Included in the SUEDE-LA-PRO kit:
  • two sole patches
  • two suede disks (held in place within the sole patches via perforation)
  • two rubber disks
  • two double-sided adhesive disks to attach the rubber disks
  • detailed instructions

Practice shoes July 29, 2016
Reviewer: Chris Zemka from Mansfield, OH United States  
I purchased an inexpensive pair of practice shoes that had no felt sole.  I found this web site and ordered me a pair.  They work perfect.  They were easy to put on and work great for practice!

SUEDE-LA-PRO September 16, 2015
Reviewer: Amy Immel from Albuquerque, NM United States  
The product is good. Easy application. The description of the installation not so much. I really didn't know what to do with the circle and I wondered if the heel was supposed to have a piece of suede on it as well...I even searched for a youtube video for help.
