It's a much sleeker look.
Good advice from above. I would try their suggestions. If you are still left with some slippage add Velcro to the inside bottom of the heel of the shoe and to the bottom of you're heel.

Sometimes I read the posts on this forum and it boggles my mind..... Someone will make an ill informed comment without bothering to research the facts and others jump in with their opinions. Even less informed.

A competent cobbler will remove "heel grips" and apply a "back liner". This is a tin piece of leather that will remedy 2 different problems. 1.

Back liners should be cemented and stitched on.
