Safety first

The beginning of our Winter has always been the season I dislike. The temperature is going down and up again, it is raining, freezing, snowing, melting, freezing ... and it is dark. The result is icy pavements, slippery roads, water on ice, ice under snow. What will happen to elderly ladies when we they walk there? They either walk very, very carefully and get a hurting back, or they slip and break their bones. There must be an alternative! And so there is. Mine is here:
 
 
My new Icebug boots with carbon steel and rubber studs. Safety goes before elegance. High heels are for parties. Pretty shoes are for fine weather. Sensible shoes are for me.

I have been searching for boots. It's icy and cold and my current boots are 15 years old and bought out of immediate necessity when we moved to Ohio. Wish Icebug could be found in the US. Mr. Creations got caught off guard last night when walking Abby and he fell and bruised his hand and sprained his wrist. Stylish goes out the window during the winter -- safety and warmth are first! I really like the boots.

I always go for comfort first when it comes to footwear. These are ideal for snow and ice. My daughter has some of those removable/detachable ice cleats. I'm told they work quite well.
Stay safe.

Now that's my kind of boot, Ulla! I think they're rather stylish, too ;>)
Cheers!

The description of the new boots make them sound like snow tires.Good for staying upright.
