Wear a shoe that has good traction and a low, textured sole. Do not wear a high-heeled shoe. Your entire foot should be stable on the ground, so that you can maintain your balance under slippery conditions.

Do not wear rain boots. Although rain boots will keep your feet dry, they will not keep them warm. Wear boots with some type of insulation, such as fleece, inside them to make sure your feet stay warm.

Wear boots with some type of straps or laces on them. Simple slip-on boots will come off easily, whereas shoes with straps or laces will be more secure.
