Highways maintenance needs to develop to include the quailty of the public realm as one of the determinants of maintenance policy, rather than simply maintaining a flat, skid resistant surface.

Do your shoes matter for your prom? Yes, they do! In fact, the right shoes will make this evening amazing. If you select the wrong shoes, on the other hand, you could be risking a number of problems. They make look strange. They may make your height wrong and they could even cause you pain every time you step onto the dance floor. Instead of allowing this to happen, take the time to purchase the very best shoes possible for your prom. It does not have to be difficult to do so, either. Finding the perfect prom dress is only half the battle. Now it's time to accessorize. The right shoes, the right jewelry, and the right hair accessories will complete your look and make you standout on prom night. And speaking of standing out, have you thought about your prom night shoes yet? If you are having trouble finding your perfect prom shoe, here are some helpful tips that are sure to complete your look. One of the best decisions you can make for prom shoes is getting the right size. If the shoe is too large, they will be hard to dance in. If the shoe is too small, you will spend a great deal of time sitting because it is too painful to walk. In either case, your evening can be ruined. To get the right size shoe, have a professional fitting done. Most high quality shoe stores will do these for you. They take measurements of your feet and make shoe recommendations for you. This is the best tool to use as you search for the right shoe. The next step in the process is ensuring that you get the right look. Start with knowing what you want. For example, be sure to purchase the right size heal. Is your date taller than you? Is he the same size as you? Choosing the right heal can help you to feel comfortable with your date. Also, look at the style of the shoe. You may want something that works well with your prom dress. The cut and style of the shoe are incredibly important to completing the look for your prom. Do not underestimate the importance of the style of the shoe! Get a comfortable heel-height. You're in luck, this year there is really no standard height for heels. Don't be afraid to go with a shoe that is comfortable. If you can't walk in heels, you can easily get away with comfy and stylish Ballet flats or low heeled satin sandal thongs this prom season. If balance isn't a concern of yours, you can really turn heads in some deliciously flirtatious rhinestone-sparked high heel platform shoes or daringly sexy strappy sandals with criss-cross details. The rule of thumb for prom night shoes that look and feel spectacular is to pick a heel height that's comfortable for you. There's more to the heels than height. You have to remember that height is not the only factor in making your heels more comfortable. The shape and width of the heel as well as the shape of the shoe play a big role in your balance and stability when walking and especially when dancing. Keep in mind that the narrower the heel, the less stability you will have. If you only plan to wear the heels for photos, it won't matter much, but if you're not used to heels at all, you have two choices. The first choice is to pick a pretty shoe with a chunkier heel, or a flashy and funky wedge heel that gives you a bit more stability. Metallic Shine and Glitz Metallic shoes are definitely in this prom season, especially if you're wearing a dress with glitzy glam. You should find some gorgeous metallic and glitter prom shoes that will set off your dress perfectly, but be sure that you've got the right dress for a shiny metallic shoe. A metallic sequined shoe with wishbone straps could be absolutely ideal if your dress has some glitter of its own, but could very well upstage a dress that doesn't have the same shimmer and flair.
