I made a poor shoe choice after a small snow storm. My choice was poor because the soles on these shoes have as much traction as tap shoes. But, they're gold and I was wearing a plaid skirt....it all made sense in my head at the time. Everything made sense until I slipped and fell...twice. Lesson learned, as soon as I could I changed into rubber soled boots. I was 100% safer on the ice, but about 50% less adorable.
