I'm not sure it feels more secure, simply because the sole of your foot is stickier than some shoes. I think the direct tactile feeling causes you to adjust more quickly. Further, if your shoes don't fit very snuggly, and most would be uncomfortable if they did, your foot can slop around inside the shoe causing instability.
