Red carpet looks may appear to be all glamour and over-the-top fashion, but underneath it all celebs are just like us. 

Ariana Grande proved this fact when she arrived at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards in an oversized Giambattista Valli ball gown and Christian Louboutin heels, which were topped off with custom non-slip soles.

After skipping out on the 2019 Grammys following after a dispute with producer Ken Ehrlich, the “Thank U, Next” songstress made her triumphant return to the red carpet in her signature glam style (in not one, but two looks), all without missing a beat.

Grande’s expert styling trick is an easy and affordable way to transform any footwear in your wardrobe into non skid options, and an ideal choice for any special event or night out. If you don’t have the budget for custom Louboutins, we’ve found a bestselling product that quickly updates slippery shoes, and is available starting at just $15. 

With an adhesive back and rubberized sole, the ShoeSkin is perfect for protecting the red bottoms of Louboutin heels, or just for adding extra grip to slippery heels and dress shoes.

The transparent skin blends into all shoe bottoms and is non-marking and non-scratching, meaning it can easily be removed following wear and tear. The non-slip layer is also clear, so even after applying them, there’s no obvious change to the sole’s appearance.

“These are a lifesaver! Easy to use and the thickness of the product is great,” wrote one reviewer.

“I’ve worn my Christian Louboutins several times on pavement, tile, and carpet with absolutely no issues,” added another. “These are not smooth on the bottom so they actually give the shoes more grip, especially on polished floors.”

Shoppers have noted that since you do need to cut the grips to size for each shoe, it can take a bit of practice to get the perfect fit. However, once you do have the correct sizing, the result is well worth the effort. 

If you’re looking to give them a shot for yourself, shop the ShoeSkin below!
