Prevent Falling on Ice

This is not intended to be a particularly stylish blog entry, but in light of the current "cold snap", you might find this tip useful for navigating icy patches on foot.

Get a pair of large mens socks, sports socks or ski socks, and put them on over your footwear. You might get some strange looks, but the grip provided by the socks will prevent you from slipping on the ice.

Yours in style,


  1. did it work for u? Im about to attempt it but need feedback..x

  2. Hi there! Believe it or not, it does actally improve grip substantially...but you will require large, thick, woolly socks that you don't mind destroying! Caution, it's not failsafe fall-avoidance strategy - you still need to proceed with caution so as to avoid taking a tumble. Yours in style, C.
