Strange shoe accessories prevent slipping on ice
Nordic Grip Mini Ice Grippers are the ultimate winter accessory for women’s shoes.
Some of us refuse to give up our high heels, despite blustery weather and snowfall. But now, we needn’t worry about slipping on the ice—a British company is selling the ultimate winter accessory for shoe lovers.
The Nordic Grip Mini Ice Grippers are basically fancy rubber bands that slip over the toes of your shoes for a slip-free experience, no matter what kind of shoes you’re wearing (they stretch over all different types of shoes, from mile-high stilettos to boots).
