It’s funny how having a bowling-ball-like attachment on your front can knock you off balance. To stay on your feet, it’s a good idea to wear supportive shoes with lug soles, such as hiking boots. The high top will give your ankle stability and the lug sole will provide traction on wet, slick or uneven terrain -- like your snow-covered driveway or icy steps.

Try the 631 Civetta GT-WNS all terrain boots, Vasque Breeze hiking boots, or the Siren Song Mid Sport GORE-TEX®. For maximum stability (and warmth), go with a knee-high hiking boot like the The North Face Adrianne III.

For a cheaper alternative, strap on a pair of YakTrax, which are like snow chains for your shoes. Their lightweight, durable plastic, which adjusts to fit your shoe size, gives you 360 degrees of traction on ice and snow.
