Notes:

1. Fewer than 1% of our customers report that one of our adhesive-backed soles detached from their shoes during use. These cases are rare and appear to happen with certain rubber. We suspect that the 3M industrial-strength double-sided adhesive used as backing for our products adheres less well to some exotic rubber soles, notably, an artificial rubber called "EVA." Also, there are hundreds of different rubber or plastic soles in existence, and obviously we can't test them all. If your rubber or plastic-soled shoes present one of those rare cases, please contact us at customerservice@soles2dance.com and report the problem. We will respond promptly and we will absolutely positively have a workaround or solution for you. Just contact us -- we can't resolve your problem if you don't tell us that you have one.

2. Our SULOFRI super-low-friction material is soft and thin. On extremely abrasive floors this material It will wear-out in a matter of hours.
