I Like Sock Skiing On Slippy Floors

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 443 People


    I have these dress socks and boot socks that when freshly worn, extremely slippy on my kitchen floor, so I love getting a running start, and even though it kills my joints, slide across the kitchen on my way for coffee and to grab my boots from the dining room.

    Cool Topic

    Besides loving the photo for this, Tommy is a crush of mine. Sadly he has never returned the feeling. Lol I love to slide across the floor with my dog behind me. I wind him up, running in place, then We take off. It's so much fun.

    Direct Route

    We have a laminate floor in the hallway, then in the kitchen and then into the dining room, you can actually ski from the front door to the patio doors using that route. Who needs those heelies when you have laminate!!!

    Sock Skiing makes me feel like a graceful figure skater and really, really fast! I can even do flips still, at my old age! Do a run and slide across the kitchen floor - hit the carpeted area and jump! It's easy and fun.

    Yes, Especially Freshly Waxed ...

    Yes, especially freshly waxed wood floors or laminate floors.  Lenolium and tile is great too, although sometimes the fall can be too much.  I also love sliding down stairs in sleeping bags!

    Sooo Much Fun

    I have the best kitchen floor for it. Another fun thing is stacking up pillows against the wall and getting my cat to chase a toy across the floor really fast so he slides and bounces off the pillows

    Last Time..

    I'd waxed my hardwood and decided to do some sock skiing when I slipped and took a nasty hard fall. Needless to say, lesson = learned.

    I used to love to do this as a kid.  I've actually picked this "habit" up again recently.  Now, the kids and I have races across the kitchen floor.  My youngest is the fastest, but I have way more style.
