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).

Seriously--as much as you are paying for your heels, why ruin them out in the ice and snow? That seems dumb, not to mention foolhardy.

In a girl’s life, there are a select few occasions when it’s considered completely appropriate to go all out with a truly spectacular dress. Her wedding day comes to mind, of course, and maybe her Sweet 16. Prom night, however, is certainly at the tip-top of that short list of special events.
