UHN’s iDAPT Rehabilitation Research institute has done a study on the most popular winter boots at ratemytreads.com. Does your choice of winter foot-wear make the cut? 7′ is the maximum curb ramp angle allowed in Ontario. Many boots did not make the grade (literally!)
Some Sperry, Windriver, Dakota and Caterpillar boots proved to be able to grip on this angle in winter conditions. The rest…well, let’s say they just slipped away!
Avoid slips and falls this winter. Ensure your boots make the grade!
