Sometimes you have a winter that doesn’t have an exuberant amount of snow. It’s times like this that you don’t want to pull out your snow boots, but know that normal shoes will have you sliding all over the place. There are lightweight snow boots that you can acquire, but then you have to tote around your other pair of shoes for when you arrive at your destination. Wouldn’t it just be easier to find a way to put more traction on your normal shoes?
That is exactly the aim of the YakTrax Instant Ice Shoes. These slide over top of your regular shoes and will give you all the traction you need to get from point A to point B. Made of injection molded thermal plastic elastomer with hand-wound rust-resistant coils, there is no way that icy sidewalk is going to take you down. They are super lightweight and can handle being in temperatures as low as 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Coming in sizes extra small through large, there should be a size for almost everyone. They only cost $20, and will be much easier to stash during the work days than a pair of snow boots.
