I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. Go ahead, look it up. It's pretty much a frozen tundra from November to March. And every facking year I gotta put up with slipping and sliding around on snow and ice when I walk anywhere. And I walk everywhere.
Anyone have any good idea's for anti-slip stuff to put on boots? Or to keep from the steel from freezing, which also sucks. I had a friend a who glued those bathtub mats to her boots. It worked well till the glue froze and broke off the boot.
So other than those winter cleats ya gotta take on and off I'd love for yooooou to share.
I thought about using grip tape, the stuff you put on a skateboard on my shoes. I'm not sure how well it would work, but its pretty cheap, like five bucks for an entire sheet. I think they make "grips" for shoes too, but I'm not sure how well they work, Ive never tried them.
Hmmm, that sounds pretty interesting. I think I'm gonna have to try it.
grip tape worked decently well, i bought a giant roll in a hardware store for really cheap but after a few months i had to re-do it.
You're in Canada dudette, why aren't you rocking any bunny boots?... They come in black too y'know?
What are bunny boots?
I don't think melted ice slush seeping through the bottom will help.
Those would be the white boots on the far right. Developed by the military, rated for temperatures beyond -20. People also call them 'mickey mouse boots' or 'mickeys'
they are made of rubber, bolded around layers of wool. You can submerge them, just change your socks, bail the water out, you're good to go again.. can't do that with regular snow-packs..
The outsole is also supple enough to grip on ice.. but not in a way like cleats would.
I have a pair myself. They are a whole size bigger than normal, so I got a size smaller, and they're plenty comfortable.
The bunny boots seem a bit extreme, I'm not that far north.
at least they're cheap. they run $77. USD at the most.
They look a little weird, but they're awesome :).
