As long as the snow isn't too wet, stick-on sandpaper - the sort you stick to power tools - is perfect. Tear a disc in half and stick one to the sole of each foot. Lasts long enough to walk the kids to school and back.

Flautist --

If you are a bigfooted chicklet, ya just need to deal with normal shoes instead of wearing something that is going to kill you.

Trust me.

My mother is huge footed and she breaks an ankle or otherwise at least once a week, Sometimes breaks two or three ankles a day on her bad days. She got more metal in her foot than...ummm...someone with no metal in their foots.

Don't worry, some of us men have just as much problems...I wear size 15 and I generally have to wear the industrial shoes to get something that isn't going to wear out, or be dangerous. I have a pair of steeltoed redwings under my suit right now (though I should at least get a pair of black ones so I don't look like I just came off a Caterpiller stuck in the mud). Sometimes fashion isn't worth killing yourself over (but don't tell my mom that with her 6 inch heals and size 12 womens shoe that she tries to cram into a size 4 and screams at anyone that tells her she got hooves instead).

For women's sizes 5 through 10. I seem to be seeing more and more of this kind of thing, not just in shoe accessories but in actual shoes, especially in the ritzier, more high-priced brands. What are us big giant-footed women supposed to do, just skid and flail around on the ice, I guess. It makes me wonder where they get the shoes for those eight-foot tall fashion models....somemething tells me they don't wear nice sweet little size fives and sixes.
