Waterproof Snow Boots

Before clearing any snow and ice from your driveway, it's essential to wear the right gear. Start with a pair of waterproof snow boots, like this set from GLOBALWIN. The rubber soles offer serious grip and traction, so you won't slip down the back steps, while the thick fleece lining will keep your feet and ankles warm in several inches of powder.

Insulated Work Gloves

Don't forget to protect those digits! On your way out the door, grab a pair of insulated work gloves. These are made of synthetic leather and come with wing straps, so the gloves stay secured to your wrists. After an hour of shoveling or spreading ice-melting material on the sidewalk, your fingers will be so grateful for the extra warmth.
