Have you tried them out? I have been wearing my Vass double soles with their version of a Topy in Saskatoon where snow clearing sucks. On soft and hard packed snow they work quite well. Nothing works on ice. I think it has to do with the softness of the rubber. I have also been wearing a pair of boots with Carmina's version of Dainite and they also work better than I expected.

Not yet. Still waiting for it to snow.

Winter tip for walking on icy sidewalks: Walk on the edges or sides of the sidewalk where you can find rough spots or snowy spots. This will give your soles something to bite into as you walk. Just be careful you don't twist your ankles doing it and be aware of ice under the snowy patches.

Well, as I said I was impressed with the traction of the Vass Topy so hopefully you'll be OK. I'm pissed though that you don't have any snow!

Good tip. Always look for those snowy bits and never cut on your inside foot.

Last year I asked my cobbler for snow and ice proof soles and he installed Vibram Raptor soles on my leather soled boots. I have to say, they offer the best traction I've ever experienced without the shoe soles looking bulky. I also own Dainite studded and commando soled boots but these Vibram ones are better in my opinion in ice and snow.

These treads work suprising well in snow. I am quite pleased with them. Recommend. I am sure commando soles are great too but these are much more demure and cost $30.

Where i live we have cobblestone. A lot. It can be really slippery for dainite when wet. Specially because the pavement can be very irregular, not straight and the stones sometimes are very round.  With dainite and even leather soles you practically skate all the time.
