The importance of wearing appropriate footwear

Walking around campus in snow and ice can be dangerous if pedestrians aren’t wearing footwear appropriate for the conditions.

Slips and falls on snow and ice can result in serious injuries. Consider wearing footwear that is supportive, fits properly, feels comfortable and is in good condition. Winter footwear often features a wide base with a soft and flexible sole that is made up of non-slip tread.  

Save the sandals, sneakers and slippers for spring or walking indoors.
