“Boot Sock” Boosts Traction On IceA “boot sock” made in Germany from a combination of fabric and metal boosts traction on compact snow and icy surfaces. The edges of the sock are sealed with a red plastic to keep the material from fraying. They fit over boots with a set of elastic straps. A large loop at the heel is used to help pull it on. It’s held in place by a Velcro strap.
A big advantage is that you don’t need to remove it for driving, or for walking around inside your house.
I-Socks come in a compact carrying case that can be easily stored in your pockets. They’re available in 2 sizes – small, for boot sizes from 4 to 7; and large, for boot sizes from 8 to 12. They sell for $40 at the British website www.roofbox.co.uk. Not available yet in North America.
