Ice and snow - Choose the right footwear

We all know to avoid heels in the snow but equally bad are shoes with no grip such as loafers or ballet pumps which have no grip whatsoever.   Wear shoes with rubber soles or specially designed shoes for walking in the snow and ice - you can even put socks on top of your shoes to add grip! Just don't forget to wear another pair on your feet too!  You can also buy rubber grips to add onto your existing shoes, which are handy to carry around with you at this time of year.
