Winter weather poses a serious risk to safety. While we all know to be extra cautious while driving on snowy or icy roads, it’s equally as important to protect yourself when travelling by foot. Shovelling the sidewalk, running errands or walking the dog can lead to a trip to the emergency room.
According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information, nearly 9,000 people were hospitalized due to slip and falls caused by ice in winter 2016-2017. The most common forms of injury? Wrist and ankle fractures as well as head trauma, which can have long-lasting impact on a person’s health.
To help prevent unnecessary injury, some Canadians opt for anti-skid winter footwear. Whether you wear them at work or whenever you leave the house, having a boot with a textured outsole that won’t wear down are a great way to protect yourself against the constantly changing winter weather.

“I love these boots, they are perfect for quick and easy wear, I order a little larger size in the event I want to wear a thick sock but they are really warm with a thin sock. I love that they are so easy to put on and off plus they look great too,” another added. “The price is fabulous for a small winter boot that offers everything a big boot does.”
