Believe it or not, I sell 30-50 pair of shoes a year to people that want better traction around town during winter. I actually have doctors that have their own discount code for their patients. None of the manufactures recommend wearing shoes around town on surfaces other than clean ice. We all know that dirt, gravel, cement and pavement do not do well with the latex fingers of broomball shoes. But if wearing them saves a fall, it is worth the investment. I always recommend an outdoor sole for this type of customer. My best selling shoes for this situation are the Acacia Gripinator and the Dgel Tractors. It is important to have a shoe with holes on the bottom to allow obstructions to fall out of the sole. Both of these shoes are well insulated and warm when used for walking around town.
