15 Shoes You Won't Slip In...Hopefully

Snow boots are the shit. They're our shields against the most treacherous winter conditions Mother Nature throws at us. But, sometimes, those bulky, shearling clunksters can't quite deliver the perfect finishing touch for an elevated look. Instead of completely compromising your style in favor of practicality, try swapping your winter boots (at least on non-blizzard days) for a version with just a track sole. The jagged, rubber bottoms will help you stay put, and they also happen to look super rad. Ahead, 15 stompers that won't have you treading lightly this season.
