This is mummy’s mothering corner


No Rubber Clogs on Escalators

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 20, 2007

Like this shoes? I just bought it about a month ago from Tree House, Penang. It is so cute and Elizabeth really look so “baby like” when she put it on. I love this design so much. Soft Homemade leader like baby flog. Does this look familiar to you? However, this pair of shoes has no crocodile mark on it. Anyway, the design is still quite similar with that famous rubber flog. Thus, I am quite worried… luckily Elizabeth can’t walk yet, so is still save for her.

I guess some mummies already know what am I worried about. If you still do not aware of the danger of wearing the famous rubber flog. You better wake up now, especially if you are still crazy over it. If you are Malaysian(only for Northern region), quickly grab today’s “The Star” newspaper and flip through it. You might see one big bold header stating CAP (Consumer Association of Penang) : Ban Rubber Clogs in the ‘Star Metro” section. If you are too lazy to pick up the newspaper or you are simply a Malaysian who live outside Northern Region or you might from other countries. Check this out, then you will know what I mean.

This is specially dedicated to all parents. Your dearest baby girl or boy, or even yourself might be wearing the wrong shoes which you might thought it is a great one. Be caution as you might seriously injured or lost your toes just by wearing a pair of highly praised rubber clog.

Crocs + escalators = entrapments

This is what I found out from TheStar.com, ( remember to click into it and see the full detail)

“According to reports appearing across the United States and as far away as Singapore and Japan, entrapments occur because of two of the biggest selling points of shoes like Crocs: their flexibility and grip. Some report the shoes get caught in the “teeth” at the bottom or top of the escalator, or in the crack between the steps and the side of the escalator.”

“Washington Metro’s Lacosse and other escalator experts say the best way to prevent shoe entrapments is to face the direction the stairs are moving, keep feet away from the sides and step over the teeth at the end.”

I might continue to make some updates regarding this topic if there are other serious incidents occurs. Hope you parents always got the right shoes for your dearest little ones.

Have a nice day!
