Step on a Slipp-Nott® & Stop Slipping!

What is a Sports Traction System & How Does it Work?

Slipp-Nott is the original traction system, or basketball sticky mat.  Step on the adhesive surface and instantly clean the soles of athletic shoes when stepping off.  Dirt clings to the mat, leaving shoes spotless.

Why are clean soles important to athletes?

The answer is traction! Wax or dirt buildup on rubbery soles means less grip and more slips. Performance suffers as athletes lose control on the court.
