Item SUEDE-DIY is one sheet of premium suede of size 8.5 in x 12 in (21.6 cm x 30.5 cm) with a thickness of 3/64 inch (1.2 mm). The sheet has a backing of 3M industrial-strength double-sided adhesive, the strongest double-sided adhesive available. SUEDE-DIY is a cost-effective way to make your own suede soles. To get started, you trace the outside of your shoe's sole on the adhesive side of the suede sheet with a marker and then cut it out yourself. You can thus design the most efficient use of the material and you keep the scraps.

After cutting your soles to size, you only have to peel off the protective liner of the adhesive backing and stick your new soles on. While you can buy sheets of suede at crafts stores, those suede sheets 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 SUEDE-DIY sheets with industrial-strength adhesive backing. SUEDE-DIY sheets thus saves you the most difficult aspect of self-fitting suede soles to shoes. SUEDE-DIY sheets can be cut with good household scissors.

Dancers prefer suede soles because suede has ideal friction properties for dancing on well-maintained and clean wood dance floors. However, for dancing on any other type of floor, we recommend our other Soles2dance products (see Product Selector at our web site). If you do intend to dance on well-maintained, clean wood dance floors, then this product is right for you.

    This product works very well for replacing the main sole of either flat or high-heeled shoes as those soles present a relatively large area for the adhesive to adhere to. The product also works well for covering the heel of a flat shoe, e.g., sneakers or men's dance shoes. However, the product is not meant to cover the heel tip of high-heeled ladies' shoes, because high heels typically have narrow bottoms, which present only a small surface area for the adhesive of the suede sheet. As a simple rule of thumb: In order for the adhesive backing of the suede sheet to stay on securely, there should be a contact area that is at least equivalent to the area of a 2-inch diameter circle. If you want to cover a high, narrow heel, consider buying a piece of our very cheap SUEDE-SCRAP together with our Superglue Gel, SUGLU. Superglue is much stronger than even the industrial-strength 3M 300LSE double-sided adhesive used as the backing for our suede sheets and suede soles.

    4 of 5 Suede Sheets October 31, 2022
    Reviewer: Peter Heraghty from Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England  
    I have stuck the Suede to the bottom of my trainers and it went well, I have not tried them yet so I cannot comment of how effective they are, Other people have told me how good they are.

    FYI, I live in England in the UK and I did find it difficult to order the Suede as England was not listed as a country that you can send the Suede to. I did get them sent to a friend in the States and this sorted my problem. Perhaps listing England as a delivery destination may help other people in England source your products.

    5 of 5 Wonderful product October 11, 2022
    Reviewer: Gail Jacobson from Minneapolis, MN United States  
    This is so easy to use and such hi quality. Don’t be fooled by cheap knock offs on Amazon. Read the reviews. The suede is thick but not too thick, sturdy and very sticky. It really is fantastic

    5 of 5 Great dance soles but .... September 15, 2022
    Reviewer: Paula Daub from Kansas City, MO United States  
    Great dance soles which I have used for years, but we also need regular leather soles for street wear. My latest purchase of a dance sole sheet was to cut out soles for street wear because I couldn't find them anywhere else. Because I had to substitute the dance soles, I will not be able to wear those shoes if it's raining. I hope they will see this and add street wear leather sheets to their line.
