Please help me find some smart shoes that will keep me on my feet during the winter.

I am prone to falling over my own two feet at the slightest movement. When its winter; I'm a bit like Bambi. Last year I fell over and hit my head on the pavement.
This year, I would like to not fall over. I'm also pregnant, so I think I may be clumsier on my feet.
I spent last year trekking around in trainers and carrying my shoes so I could change into them at work. This year I ideally would like to have a pair of shoes that will keep me upright on the snow/ice, but will also look okay at work. Kinda like stylish artic boots grin
Any ideas where from? Has anybody seen anything?

When it is snowy/icy I wear my lugg sole sheepskin boots from Bearpaw. They keep me warm, have a good grip and then change into 'proper' shoes when I get to where I am going if it is a work thing.

Who wants to tramp around in shoes in slushy slippery weather?

Or get yourself a lovely pair of smart boots with a good grippy sole for work, it really depends on what is acceptable where you work though.

Boots are acceptable, preferably black.

how about something like this, but maybe slightly longer?
