Winter keeps us out of our sundresses, our short shorts, and our strappy sandals. But it will not keep us out of our high heels. Mostly. We can't exactly pull off the stilettos and platforms of sunnier days, lest we end up facedown on the icy pavement crying tears of sartorial regret. But there is a way to stay on higher ground, while still keeping yourself vertical on the snowy, slushy streets. Just try our favorite winter-wise heels and booties. Rest assured, these nine options have the stamina to keep you standing when sidewalks get slick. Now walk tall: You've got style and safety perfectly in balance.
