Restaurant requires women to wear heels
Updated On: Jun 18 2013 04:57:49 PM CDT
A new Southern California restaurant has stepped on more than a few toes with its dress code requiring all women customers to wear heels.
The controversy began when ProAbition posted an online flier announcing its June 15 grand opening, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported.
Included in the restaurant's dress code was a line that read, "Ladies: No flat shoes or sandals. Must have heels."
The dress code did include an exception for injuries.
Even so, many women were not too happy about the rules and took to social media to express their feelings.
After numerous complaints, the restaurant softened its stance and issued the following statement:
"As a business, we pay very close attention to our guests' feedback. We had been receiving feedback on all fronts. That's when we decided maybe we need to re-adjust this and not be so strict about this one particular item."
