How to Add Grip to Your Infants/toddlers Shoes

by Pete Petráš

Adding a simple layer of clear Silicone to the bottom of your infants shoes will give them grip on those slippery surfaces like hardwood floors.


  • 1 Clear Waterproof Silicone Caulking
  • 1 Optional Caulking gun
  • 1 Pair of fabric soled shoes
  • 1 Pair of latex gloves
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Pretty simple, zig zag a small bead of caulk on the bottom of the soles of your kids shoes and with your gloves on smoothen out the bead so it's flat and even.

    Step 2

    Now just let it try in well ventilated area. I suggest doing it in the garage where the baby cannot breath or touch the wet silicone. Once dry it's very grippy and very flexible.

    Step 3

    Note: This is only for fabric soled shoes and intended for early walkers on slick surfaces. Do not use on rubber soled shoes.
