Description
 

RELATED PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: We now offer SULOFRI-BAREBONES, a kit of already cut soles in an inexpensive bulk package. It comes with all the SULOFRI parts needed for outfitting six pairs of shoes at a heavily discounted price.

SULOFRI-SHEET-3M-06x12 is a sheet of the exact same material we use for our SULOFRI super-low friction soles, for dancing outdoors on concrete and asphalt. The sheet is of Size 6 in x 12 in (152 mm x 304 mm) with a thickness of 0.03". SULOFRI-SHEET-3M-08x10 can be cut with household scissors or utility knives. We cut our SULOFRI soles products from these exact same sheets.

SULOFRI-SHEET-3M comes with industrial-strength adhesive backing. After cutting the sheet, just peel of the protective liner of your cut piece and stick the piece to your shoe sole. The adhesive backing will stick securely to leather or suede-soled shoes and to most natural rubber-soled shoes. The adhesive will stick less securely to shoe soles with an aggressive or knobby profile, that is, soles that don't offer much surface area to stick to.

Dancing with SULOFRI soles

SULOFRI soles allow dancers to pivot with ease on extremely high-friction dance floors such as concrete and asphalt. SULOFRI soles offer much less resistance to pivoting and linear sliding than our standard low-friction products. Out of more than 20 materials we tested, SULOFRI is the only material 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 4-6 hours of dancing on rough concrete (the actual wear rate depends strongly on surface, dance style, and the dancer's weight).

Included:

One sheet of SULOFRI ultra-low friction material with adhesive backing.

  • Nominal dimensions*: 6 in x 12 in (152 mm x 304 mm)

Warnings:

1. SULOFRI is intended solely for dancing outdoors, on concrete and asphalt. Never walk or dance with SULOFRI soles on any other surface, as it is extremely slippery. Even on concrete and asphalt, SULOFRI is so slippery that you should avoid walking as much as possible.

2. SULOFRI material has ideal friction properties for dancing on concrete and asphalt. Unfortunately, it is expensive and it wears down very quickly. This shouldn't be too surprising, though: concrete and asphalt are very abrasive surfaces, almost like sand paper. One might ask why rubber soles don't wear down as quickly. It's because they grip instead of slide. Dancers, however, like to pivot and slide, and if one was able to do so with rubber soles, then those would wear down just as quickly.

5 of 5 Saved my sanity September 1, 2021
Reviewer: Elizabeth Ashley from Kula, HI United States  
I like a slippery floor and unless the floor is perfect, I like using the sulofri sheet on my shoes. I actually use just a circle the size of a quarter on all my shoes. Place it on the ball of your shoe where you spin. Its just enough to help me spin and not so slippery that I cannot use it on perfect floors also! For me, that one circle lasts the life of the shoe.

5 of 5 A Must for Outdoor Dancing July 27, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This material is the answer to all of my problems with outdoor dancing, wish I had found it sooner! This sheet is definitely the best value, and it's easy to cut the material out using normal scissors. I've found that you actually want to cut a size smaller than the full front area of the shoe, because the edges will come up and catch on things. The adhesive sticks really well. Now I'm all set for outdoor dancing!

Reviewer: barbara Neely from HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC United States  
Thought that your products were good...the sulofri-sheet was excellent for a particularly sticky floor for country line dancing.  Glad i ordered your products!

You also offered excellent customer service when the product I ordered was sent to the wrong person.

5 of 5 Perfect for concrete June 28, 2021
Reviewer: Up And Dancing from Ashland, OR United States  
I put a round patch on the ball of a pair of old suede-soled shoes. This made them perfect for dancing on fairly smooth concrete. I left 1/4-1/2 inch of suede around the edges so they wouldn't be too slippery which I think was a good idea! I could spin like a top. They should work well on carpet, too. My guess is that they would get torn up on asphalt, and need to be replaced often, but I haven't tried.
