I'll check out the Yak Traks. I was just looking at the Inov8 Orocs, they have them in 280 and 340, with the 340 looking like longer rubber grip.
Yup, i think i'm ging for the Inov8 340. The Yaktrax look good, but too much mucking about with the on off think.
Anyone tried Icebugs ?
or someone once posted a link to putting short screws into the soles of an old pair of your regular trail shoes for running on snow/compacted ice
Aldi have some ice grip thingies in (last week ) that have spikes not the coils and I thought they may work on compacted or frozen snow?
An orienteering shoes would be great but my money would go for a VJ rather than Inov-8...
Don't know if these are any good?? but got this this morning only 16 hours left on the offer...
Yo ho ho: Yes, I got them in the UK. I picked mine up at the London Running Show last year (three days before the snow and ice came - perfect timing!) but you can get them via various UK online retailers. I really did find them fantastic. Sorry can't recommend any bricks-and-mortar retailers to get them from (I'm sure there are some, I just don't know them). Information on sizes is available online.
NOTE: It's the STABILicers SPORT you want - the picture should show them black on top, with blue soles). They're about £40 I'm afraid but they're so tough you could use them attached to your ordinary shoes for walking around on ice pavements etc. as well as using them while running (I certainly did).
