high heels and wood floors
We are a shoes on house except for high heels. I know 2 people and of 3 more second hand who have had their wood floors ruined by high heels. It is both the amount of weight that is put on a small area (the heel) and the fact that sometimes the surface has worn and a nail is protruding. I also checked with a floor restorer and this was confirmed.
Again, we would never ask anyone to take off their shoes (other than children if their shoes were dirty) except for high heels. So far have had to only ask once and it was very difficult as we value our guests comfort.
We are having a large (60+) party next week. We are going to put a message regarding heels off along with our map email.
I am asking for wording that sounds Ok, not if we are right or wrong.
We will put a basket of socks and a few new slippers out just in case.
Anyone have any nice way to word this?
