*Before using your Topless
Sandals, the sandals and your feet must be clean and dry.
*Do not use lotions on your feet.
*Remove the clear plastic piece from the Sandals and dispose of it. Before
placing your foot on the Topless Sandal, make sure your foot is centered
correctly and step on them. They will comfortably and securely stick to your
encourage you to wear them in a clean and dry environment.
*To remove, simply peel sideways off feet. The sticky stays on the sandal,
not on your feet.
*All that is
required is that you wash them after use to remove the oil that will
accumulate from your skin and the dust from the floor or ground. On some
people, they can be used several times before washing; when the stickiness
does not seem to hold them on well, it is time to reactivate the adhesive.
If you are in a hurry to wear the topless sandals, a blow dryer can be
used for quick drying. People that have just removed socks and shoes or
have sweaty feet will benefit from cleaning their feet with alcohol before
wearing the sandal for a better attachment or you may use alcohol on the
sandal. Apply to feet when dry!
shoes are not being worn, you may store them in a large Ziploc freezer
bag or you may store them in the open. Do not place them face to face or on
top of the other shoe as it will adhere to it and could damage the shoe. If
they do get stuck face to face, get them under running water with soap and
gently work them apart! Do not use wax paper on them!
*The shoes may be worn until the adhesive is not working well,
then to reactivate, use a mild soap and a firm scrub brush and rinse well.
Joy, Dawn or Ivory dish detergent works well or an antibacterial soap.
Comet® soaps or soaps with moisturizers because they could lose their
adhesive qualities. Also avoid metal or hard plastic scouring brushes and do
not scrub too vigorously. Scrubbing for around 15 seconds should be
sufficient. Do not put them in the washing machine.
*It is not a
good idea to wear them on a day that you know it will be raining unless you
bring along a backup pair of shoes. If they get a little wet and come off
in places, they will re-stick to your feet as your foot dries, so you may do
well continuing to walk around in them! Do not walk in water puddles while
wearing the Topless Sandals. Wear them in clean areas. Avoid wearing in
fresh cut grass, on dirt walkways or other areas where debris can accumulate
on the sticky part of the Topless Sandal. You may be able to wear them in
hard sand, but sand on the beach will stick to the shoe and may cause them
to come off. If they come loose, scrub them and allow to dry before
*At swimming pools: wear inside the pool until they come loose, and then
place them in the sun to dry. When getting out of the pool, towel off well
so that water is not dripping from your bathing suit, then dry your feet
thoroughly. The chlorine from the pool will make the adhesive work even
*It is normal for the adhesive to bead up in places on the shoe such as the
heel, big toe and ball of the foot after a couple of uses. While it might
alter the beauty of the shoe, it should not affect the ability of the shoe
to stay on your feet.
*If you have
sensitive feet, do not use them or use only with socks.
*If you have difficulty removing, or if it is painful, get them wet before
