Fitness Footwear Recommends Caterpillar Boots for Cold Weather Conditions

December 4, 2008

STEVENAGE, England, December 4 /PRNewswire/ — Snow has fallen across
North West England, causing school closures and traffic delays as the roads
and footpaths becoming slippery with ice and blocked off by snow.

Lancashire, Cumbria and Greater Manchester have all been heavily affected
by overnight falls, leaving some schools shut for a third day and cars
abandoned as motorists continued their journeys on foot.

The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning with further wintry
showers forecast. In light of this, Rochdale Council has recommended that all
92 of its schools shut and more than 100 are closed in Lancashire. Cumbria
County Council has announced that 16 of its schools will not be open. In
Bolton, eight schools are shut, 10 closures have been announced in Bury, 10
in Oldham and one in Wigan.

As the cold winter weather grips northwest England, online shoes retailer
FitnessFootear.com urges to wrap up warm and wear the right shoes for a safe
journey.

Fitness Footwear MD, Luke Barlow said “with the cold winter weather we’ve
had to increase our range of Caterpillar Boots
(http://www.fitnessfootwear.com/c-82-caterpillar.aspx) to make sure that our
customers are safe while out walking. It’s so cold and icy out there, that
it’s dangerous for anyone not to be wearing suitable footwear.”

Police are warning drivers to only make necessary journeys and to be
prepared with plenty of fuel, de-icer and warm clothing.

As the cold weather sweeps southwards, blanketing the UK in frost and
snow, soon everyone will need to get their wellies, hiking boots or walking
shoes on for a safe journey, which are all readily available in time for
Christmas at http://www.fitnessfootwear.com (http://www.fitnessfootwear.com)
