Your reply so far is the best, smart man.... Have a great weekend n a happy Father's day if you're oneHave you called the manufacturer support line?
Anything you do (save shoe wearing) will affect the paint finish.
There are some ideas. Check with the manufacturer. This is probably not the first time the question has been asked.
- A light sanding 220 grit might knock down the sharp edges.
- Attempts to soften with mineral spirits will likely soften the paint finish.
- Paint over with a same color paint might fill in some of the nonskid and still keep the paint finish.
