“Broddar” – ice grips – cheap, effective slip protection for icy weather

Definitely not a sexy brand, but just what you need in icy weather. This is the modern version: Spiky, a rubber strap-on for any shoe that adds grip for ice and snow. Classic old man wear in my native Sweden, but in times like these, you realise old men sometimes have things up their sleeves worth knowing about.

Another online supplier is BlackToe, who offer several varieties of the same thing. Check it out. It could be what lies between you and a nasty fall.

There is also Yaktrax, a slightly different solution using wire springs.
