I want one. I't go well with my long hockey socks.
Noooooo Colin needs the third one down on 'this' link 'items frequently bought together!' sorry technology escapes me on how to show it but shortcut
The one item I like best is some form of spikes or grippers for my shoes, or even shoes with these features built in. That lets me keep running regardless of ice or snow.
I'm with Steve I absolutely love love love my Yaktrax, couldn't be without them (plus they make me feel really hard core lol!!!)
Interesting. I've never tried any spikes. Can you run on road with them or is that impossible?
The Yaktrax are spirals and you can run on asphalt with them for transittions. The springs are wound around rubber bindings and it is the rubber that can wear through first, e.g., if it is wrapped round a heel edge and you happen to heelstrike on asphalt.
Most spikes have carbide tips and they can survive many hundred k if you only occasionally hit stone or tarmac. Only ASICS afaik use NON-carbide tipped and they wear down extremely quickly on anything but snow or ice. OTOH they are replaceable.
I've got some yaktrax...now just need some snow and ice!
