The feet of a mouse are extremely important in how
smoothly the mouse performs. Even the most expensive mice come with poor
quality feet that soon wear out or fall off. Count on replacing them
every 8 months or so. Check before you
buy a mouse that replacement feet are available. (Logitech does not sell
replacement feet. You will need to find other sources.) If your mouse
pad or mouse feet are dirty or worn, your mouse will not slide smoothly.
This will destroy your ability to precisely control the mouse. Try
cleaning both mouse and pad and replacing the feet with improved
low-friction feet. Make sure you pry off the old feet and clean the
mouse with isopropanol to
get off any gunk or dirt before applying the new feet. When I replaced
my feet, I was horrified to find how badly worn my old ones were. Some
of the feet were worn totally off and even one of the hard plastic wells
that holds the feet was worn flat. I could not believe the difference
new feet made. The feet should stick out about
1.52 mm(0.06 in)
from the bottom of the mouse. Feet are sometimes sold as mouse
skates or mouse skatez. They often
come free when you buy a mouse pad. Two sets cost only
and there is minimal shipping since they can send the feet as a letter.
I can’t think of anything else that will improve the subjective
experience of your machine for less than
Also consider buying a premium low friction mouse
pad. Surprisingly, feet quite different sizes and shapes from
the factory originals seem to work fine too. You have to rely 100%
on the glue, rather than the wells to hold them in place.
Another option is mouse tape, e.g. (

If is a good a idea to keep a spare set of mouse feet ready in case
your feet fall off or wear through.
The 3M textured mouse pad is particularly hard on feet.
Good mousefeet are hard, durable and slippery. It is of lesser
importance they precisely fit your mouse. However, added thickness
increases the distance of the sensor from the surface possibly
interfering with reading.
The mousefeet from Hyperglide are thinner than from SlickSurf. The
Hyperglide feet arrived quite quickly by post from Singapore. Both
companies put a nice smooth edge on the feet with a polished surface.
Both used a good quality adhesive. Hyperglide warned its feet may be
incompatible with smooth or light mouse pads. They work just fine on
my bumpy 3M light-colour pad. SlickSurf sent the wrong feet and
ignored my emails. Very inexpensive. I guess they figured it was not
worth the hassle for such a small purchase.
