This product has been discontinued.

The low-friction LOFRI-DIY product is a set of high-tech glue-on soles that can be attached to the existing soles of most dance shoes, street shoes, and exercise shoes, to optimize the shoes' friction characteristics for dancing. LOFRI-DIY soles allow dancers to pivot with ease on sticky (e.g., nightclubs, dance bars) or high-friction dance floors. Virtually all floors that are not studio-quality wood floors are high-friction floors.

LOFRI-DIY is the do-it-yourself version of our friction-reducing soles LOFRI-04. The following are the differences between LOFRI-DIY and LOFRI-04:
  • The components of the LOFRI-DIY kit do not have adhesive backing. They need to be glued on to the shoes with the included Super Glue Gel or contact cement (not included), such as Barge Cement, or any other contact cement available at hardware stores.
  • Since Superglue Gel and contact cement are much stronger than even the industrial-strength double-sided adhesive provided with our other kits, LOFRI-DIY can be glued to and will stay on shoes with aggressive (knobby) profile soles, such as running and fitness shoes.
  • After gluing LOFRI-DIY components onto the shoe with Superglue Gel or contact cement, they cannot be removed again, whereas the LOFRI-04 components can be removed without damaging the shoes.
  • The edges of the large disks and the toe patches of the LOFRI-DIY kit that will be in contact with the floor should be beveled (in non- technical lingo: rounded or sloped) so they don't catch in ridges of tiled floors or other uneven floor features. This can be done with the included sand paper.

No technical skills are needed, customer only needs to follow the included detailed instructions.
No tools are needed, although the availability and use of clamps would be helpful.

  • 2x large low-friction plastic disks
  • 2x small high-friction disks
  • 2x low-friction plastic toe patches

  • 1x small tube of Superglue Gel.
  • 1x small sheet of sand paper for beveling the edges and for roughing the surfaces that will be in contact with the floor.
  • Detailed instructions on two color pages on how to attach and use the LOFRI-DIY components.

This product is intended to reduce friction of dance shoes on certain floors, such as sticky dance floors in nightclubs or generally most non-wood floors. While most dancers will find this property desirable, the risk of slipping and falling on any floor increases when using this product. Dancers should especially avoid walking on wet or slippery floors when using this product.

5 of 5 Getting unstuck on the dance floor August 21, 2018
Reviewer: Dinah Linton from Jacksonville Beach, FL United States  
Love the ability of LOFRI-DIY allows me to convert soles of "stick to" shoes to nonstick.  So happy for day I found this product.  I pass on info to other line dancers whenever possible.
You have great company, products and service.  Thanks

5 of 5 Excellent July 11, 2018
Reviewer: Anthony C. from NEW YORK, NY United States  
Very easy to put on, and makes dancing on non-studio floors much easier on the knees when rotation is required. Great product!

5 of 5 Great product November 14, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew S. from Asheville, NC United States  
I just started getting into Latin dance and with all of the new and complex things I've had to learn recently it was refreshing to find this product was easy use and inexpensive. I do wish they came with a larger portion of super glue as my shoes haven't been exactly "accepting" of the discs, but still 5 out of 5 stars and have already recommended them to fellow dancers. Thank you for coming up with this genius solution!

4 of 5 Work well September 19, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Johnson City, TN United States  
These have been working well for me for years.  They last many months before wearing out and needing to be replaced.  Work pretty well on rather sticky floors.
