CBC’s Marketplace video puts winter boots through their paces

Our Canadian winters can make for slippery conditions − and unexpected slips and falls. If you’ve experienced a stroke, you may also be at a higher risk for falls.1 

Taking extra time to choose your winter boots is important for your safety. Good quality boots with better traction can help make a difference. The better the grip, the less you may slip.  

But not all boots are created equal. In this video, CBC’s Marketplace compares six popular boot brands for sale in Canada. See how well the boots perform when things get slippery!
