I don't buy shoes that often but most of them seem to not have any grip on the bottom and I don't understand how you wouldn't just stack it when reaching the first slippy drain or polished floor.

What's the deal with these? Are you supposed to take them to a tailor and get some grip put on or just pay for the privilege of dancing around and breaking wrists

Shoes with shit loads of tread on the bottom just look like school shoes though.

I've never had an issue in shoes. Apart from when alcohol was involved.

Some are a bit lethal when brand new. Once scrubbed in they are fine.

They work like drag slicks. You've got to run on the spot for a few seconds before you go anywhere...

Under these circumstances, having feet and legs has been known to be an issue for me Gaz

More surface area so more grip imo. It's not like you walk into a puddle at 60mph and need grooves to shift the water.

I go to clarkes to get my tracking setup done. Was running a slight bit of toe out, but they popped it back in.

You have to nip into your local branch of ats to have them re Grooved! Also make sure they are balanced as it could lead to serious belly wobble!
