Are your winter boots stylish or safe? It's a question many people are wondering about when it comes to finding the best shoes to prevent them from slipping and sliding on icy streets. "The last patient I saw had just a sprain, thankfully for her, but it could have been a hairline fracture," said Dr. Don Buddecke, a podiatrist in Bellevue. Winter footwear can make or break you or your ankles, especially with below freezing temperatures and icy streets.

Dr. Buddecke says that people are slipping and falling and it could be because of their shoes. "We see a lot of broken ankles this time of year," said Buddecke. That's why he says to be more careful, especially when shopping for a winter boot. "Some of the more stylish boots have more of a high heel to them, and it's not going to have much support; it's very slippery, so again it's that rubber type sole that's going to be the best," said Buddecke.
