In the course of their lives, shoes can become wider. As a result the heel slips out of the back of the shoe. Pedag Stop helps and gently holds the heel where it belongs; in the shoe. The soft brushed leather feels comfotable and the light padding protects the heel. Pedag Stop is also a must have for people with narrow heels. Simply remove the protective foil and stick Pedag Stop in the back of the shoe. You should use a shoe horn to prevent the heel grip from coming off when putting on the shoe. This not only protects the heel grip, but also your socks/stockings as well as the heel cap of the shoe.
