Women's Gel Heel Grips
Worked for me...
I'm not sure why everyone else had such trouble with the heel grips, but mine are wonderful and I'm going to order more. Right now I have them in a pair of ballet flats, and they've stayed put since I bought them in August. I'm on my feet a lot when traveling for work, and I haven't had a problem with them yet.

Judging from the reviews, I thought the only problems on these were the adhesive being too weak but it was not. The grips made my feet snug in my shoes but the fuzzy side made my heels slip whenever I took a step and did not solve my slipping problem.

Practical, inexpensive but not always effective
I purchased these to wear inside a pair of clogs I bought,which were a tad too loose for me. The gel grips did an effective job of keeping my heel and entire foot in place, but, as was stated by other reviewers, did not always stay put in my shoe after I removed my foot. I thought, when I bought these, that they would stay in my shoe over many wearings. I found them attached to my sock after the first wearing and had to place it back into its spot in my shoe. The problem with that is the glue was not as adhesive as it was the first time I placed it in the shoe, so it does not stick very well now(superglue is a great idea,I will have to try it!). I have also bought and used them in my 8 year old daughter's ballet flats and she had no complaints and they did not move. So, it is worth a try since the price is right (especially if purchased during a BOGO event), but keep your expectations low for how they will perform.

Super glue to the rescue
As previous reviewers have stated, these work but the gel part separates from the adhesive backing almost immediately. They do fix my fitting issue (my heel was slipping) so I figure I can just super glue them on there. Price is too steep for such poor quality.

Separated from its adhesive backing in 10 minutes.

one time use...
i bought these for a pair of platform peep toes, they do work but i wouldn't say they have super adhesive glue because they are not on the shoes once i took them off. I used them doing the spring, so i wouldn't say it was hot enough for the adhesive to melt away. They are easy to use except that you have to stretch the shoe to slip your foot in because it really does not let your heal go anywhere, but don't expect for them to just stay in there, like i said, by the end of the day the rubber part had separated from the adhesive. i count on buying a new pair of gel grips everytime i am going to use my pumps, or supergluing them :) ... in any case, i'd rather keep spending the 3.99 and not have a blister on the back of my heel from the shoe slipping on/off.
