IceTrekkers Diamond Grip

rated 3 of 5 stars These work great on ice and I don't know how I got along without them for walking the dog before two winters ago. They have a "limited slip" character. For the money they should have lasted longer than two years. Last year, the third year, the cables rusted out and I kept losing the beads before I could make temporary repairs. The rubber part exceeded my expectations by lasting longer than the steel and snuggly keeping the Trekkers in place.  Full review

Some users may have painful flashbacks from that scary girlfriend they had in college.  These are the Hummer H1 of traction devices, tough and overbuilt. The link chains that hold the soles to the rubber welt are even welded at the seams.  I have had Yaktraks and other similar… Full review
