Three Shoe Tricks to Navigate Icy Streets and Trails

Winter will be here before you know it, so now’s the time to think about how to navigate those snowy and icy city streets and country trails in comfort and safety.

Yaktrax offers a wide range of removable ice traction devices for shoes and boots. These affordably priced shoe accessories offer underfoot protection designed for a simple walk to the local Starbucks or heavy-duty hiking.

These easy-to-use devices attach to the soles of a range of shoes or boots; they’re priced from $20 top $50 and available in men’s and women’s sizes. Versions include the Yaktrax Run, a combination of removable spikes and steel coils that allows athletes to continue training during the harsh winter months. Yaktrax Ski allows for greater mobility when walking in ski boots on and off the mountain, while also providing enhanced traction on snow and ice thanks to its rocker bottom design.

For travelers headed to the great outdoors, Neos overshoes offers lightweight performance boost that can be easily packed in a suitcase, such as the Navigator 5 style priced at $121.95. These protective boots slip over most footwear styles offer gripping features such as aggressive tread designed to tackle a range of winter conditions.

After a day out in the elements, it’s likely boots will be wet or damp. For a quick fix, there’s the DryGuy drying system that quickly and easily dries footwear. And since feet naturally sweat regardless of the season, building up moisture inside a shoe causing bacteria to form, these devices can also help eliminate potential health issues. The portable Force Dry, retailing at $50, can dry a pair of shoes in about an hour and can easily be folded up for travel ease. It can be used year-round since it can also dry out a pair of shoes after a rainy day.
