I want some boots to wear in snowy/icy weather. They need to have really good grip because I'm clumsy and I'm always terrified of falling over on the ice! I'd like them to be warm too. I've seen these but I'm not sure how good the grip will be. I also like Merrell yarra or maybe taiga. The Merrells are more expensive but maybe worth it if they'll last well?
Does anyone know how good any of these boots are on ice? Or do you have any other recommendations?
Thanks, I'll have a look at Timberland. I went in TK Maxx today but they didn't have anything good. Interesting to hear that Merrell Oslos aren't great on ice, I thought Merrell soles looked good but it's so hard to tell without testing them - need a shop with an ice rink to try them out!
I covet some Merrells but in the absense of a lottery win I bought some Karrimor ones from Makro at the weekend. £30, plain black, and really warm and toasty (I wore them to work today even without any snow to test them, and was glad I had as the pavements were really icy and I felt much safer).
