    I had to have them because I am the secretary of a 24 team 5 man league that takes up the whole house and it is at 8 P.M. on a Friday night and it gets packed. For some reason it always snows on league night. I needed something because no matter how careful you are you can't see melted snow on a carpet. Add in the cosmic bowlers who come in and start lining up before we are done and they don't know to clean the snow off their shoes. You get what you pay for. Many bowlers just stay on their lanes and only leave a few times a night. I am always on the go. Checking pot scores, signing into brackets, calling mysteries etc. Got to have my Tidytrax the cost but should last forever and so easy.

    Wet spots on shoes are painful for me because I have a two-foot plus slide. Last time I had wet spot, it was really, really wet. I brushed it out over and over again and then walked on a dry spot of carpet away from all the bowlers as much as I could. I still had to modify my approach. In certain cases, I will switch and go to plant-and-pull if I can't slide.

Putting anything on the bottom of your shoes is a really bad idea!
    Adding to Rob's point - when you buy multiples of a slide pad or heel you should consider rotating those in and out of your collection. If you are sensitive to the amount of slide you have it is important to remember that a broken in S8 will not slide the same as a new one - and the time to break it in is typically not in frame 4 of game 2.
