No, I'm not trying to pick a fight.

When the tread is worn off a shoe in a high wear spot the grip can go up. Hence why I asked. Maybe you prefer the known level of grip you have on newer soles and even an increase is not ideal for you.

Ever wondered why race cars have slick tires for dry conditions? Because it's far, far far more grip than tread patterns. It's very simple physics.

Now, as long as the type of rubber still remaining is the same and you haven't worn through to a completely different type of material - all things being equal the grip should increase in dry conditions on flat surfaces (i.e. hard courts).

I'll contribute however I feel is appropriate.
