Ice/snow traction aid

These ice/snow traction aids are designed to fit over most types of footwear to prevent slip-and-fall incidents.

A spike placement design provides more comfort while improving traction. A proprietary natural rubber compound maximizes durability while maintaining elasticity in subzero conditions.
