High-Heeled Winter Boots Dangerous on Ice and Snow

This winter’s fashionable high-heeled boots put women at risk for slips, falls, and injuries on ice and snow. These popular boots typically feature tall, spiked heels and narrow, pointed toes. Wearing high-heels makes you more unstable when walking or standing on dry surfaces, let alone slippery ones like ice or snow. A stylish low-heeled winter boot is a lot more fashionable than a cast and crutches. Women can scuff-up the soles of new boots, or purchase adhesive rubber soles, to provide greater traction.

Falls from high-heeled winter boots can lead to a number of injuries, depending on how the woman loses her balance. If her ankles roll inward or outward, she can break her ankle. If her ankle twists, ligaments can be stretched or torn, causing an ankle sprain. According to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons consumer Web site, FootHealthFacts.org, broken and sprained ankles can be present at the same time. If you are injured, immediately use the “R.I.C.E.” method – rest, ice, compression and elevation – to help reduce swelling, pain and further injury. Then, it is best to seek prompt evaluation and treatment. Delaying treatment can result in long-term complications such as chronic ankle instability and pain, arthritis, or deformity. Even if you’re able to walk on the injured foot, pain, swelling, or bruising indicates a serious injury.

Winter is a beautiful season, but it's also the season with the highest rate of injuries. Inadequate shoes seem to be the main cause of broken and sprained ankles, but let's not forget about those severe weather conditions that can lead to injuries regardless the shoes. In case of misfortune, a digital x-ray imaging will show if there's a reason of concern or not, but either way, a specialist should be consulted.
