Winter Walking Safety

If you're like many folks out there, walking in the winter can be a scary endeavor. Even without having any pre-existing problem with balance, unseen ice fills ERs in winter climates the world over.

Many folks who are active in warmer months head indoors in winter due to this fear.

Well, no longer. The Yaktrax Pro is a fantastic product that gives tremendous traction at a cheap price in an elegant package. You can even use it as a runner, especially now that the Pro version has an additional retention strap crossing over the top of your shoe.

Products like this one can be especially valuable to folks with balance difficulties or known osteoperosis, but there is one word of warning that I can give you from experience - they're VERY slippery on indoor ceramics and tiles.
