a lifesaver!

I live in the northern Black Hills of SD, where winter seems to last a lot longer than we want. My dogs insist on walking me a couple of miles every day, and it can get pretty treacherous sometimes. I had perfected the 'Addy St. Shuffle' (looks a bit like MJ's "Thriller" dance, with a much higher chance of falling, if you know what I mean! :o), and decided I didn't want to break anymore wrists. I've already tried these out a couple of times this month, and they work great! Great traction on ice, and they stayed on even though I was piling through about a foot of powder today. I gave these a 4 instead of a 5 because they don't seem to work well in wet snow--the coils clog up and soon you are walking on a clump of snow. Really, I can live with that. And the 'Addy St. Shuffle' is now "The Stroll!"
