DKL Griptape won’t rip your shoes because it’s rubber. Imagine trying to rip your shoelaces with the rubber sole of your shoe.
DKL Griptape is grippy like the rubber surface of Ping Pong Paddles. Instead of sharp grains of sandpaper, rubber uses molecular adhesion and deformation to provide the same flick and friction.
When you decide to skate your new shoes, you’re really just deciding to throw them away. Switching to Non-Abrasive DKL Griptape will keep them Fresh and save you money.
