The only downside is they have ZERO grip on the bottom. My friend Lana was telling me she took a pair of shoes into a shoemaker to get industrial grip put on the bottom. Might be worth it to get a little more wear out of these. I can just picture myself sliding around on the show covered ice that Winnipeg's ground turns into in the winter months. Not a good look.
Oh, and I hope everyone had a great Christmas!
