I guess something with rubber soles and good tread would be best?

I get really stressed out when it's frosty and icy. Pagophobia it's called. Probably because the last two times I fell over I damaged myself quite badly (bruised ribs and a broken collar bone).
This year I have been mostly wearing my walking boots which were the cheapest ones that they had in Decathlon. They worked really well on days when it wasn't super icy.

Or you could just wear your yak trax all the time.

They wouldn't work on frost though would they?

Wore my new hiking shoes in the millimetre of snow we had yesterday and they seemed to be ok...

They'd work. They're not very pleasant for walking in when there isn't snow and it probably wears them out quicker but they'd stop you falling over.

Wow, I didn't know it had a name! I probably have that too, to some extent.

I notice I was talking about buying Dr.Martens in 2013 and still haven't sorted anything... I want something that will keep my feet warm, prevent slipping AND look nice (i.e. not too chunky). Not sure it exists. I've tried Kickers boots a few times, but they never fit properly. I think I'm destined to an indoor life during winter.
Just be nice to me.

Woooaaah, DMs are the SLIPPIEST THING EVER on ice. In a way that you're lulled into a false sense of safety until you go arse over tit.
I too am in love with Yak Trax. For the snow or the frost.

I've spent far, far too much on a pair of these. The red laces seduced me, I'll admit it.
