Slip-on Shoes: why does my heel keep slipping out

I've tried different sizes of slip-on shoes but the ones that fit my foot size keep slipping off for some reason.

Do you guys have any similar experiences and any solutions?

thanks

try a diffrent brand... look for the ones that rap hold onto you lower heal.

its not meant for speed walking also, just normal casual walking 20-30 feet.

Maybe get one of those sticker things that you put on the inside of your shoe. I dunno what they're called but they look like this:

WTF...that looks like a velcro. LOL velcroing the show to your feet so they don't fall off?

Lol, I guess that one does look like velcro, but it was the first pic I could find.

Those heel sticker things are usually foamy. If you stick them in your shoe, then the shoe fits more snugly and your heel shouldn't come out everytime you take a step.

Thing is, I tried both Aldo and Timberland, both which are reputable brands

BTW thanks ppl for the "heel sticker" tip. But what are these called, so I can search ebay or the stores.

You should try learning to tie your laces, or revert to those curly things.

Glue your socks to the shoes. That way you won't have to worry about what colour socks to wear everytime. Bonus!

I wear boots mostly and you can still see the wear where your heels rub against the back of the boot at you walk.

there are those shoes with the elastic type material on the sides of the tongue that allows them to stretch when you put on your shoes. Might be worth a try so that you don't have to stretch the heel part to get the shoe on your feet and with continous stretching make it slack in your heel area.

also don't wear polyester slippery socks or shallow shoes.

Maybe get laced up shoes with padded heels and ankle areas like the more expensive casuals from deer stags etc.
