Just a quick note, this appears to be the cheapest with amazon, however they will not be dispached for 2-5 weeks, which is quite a while.

The AA have them in stock delivered within 2 days, although there is 3.75 delivery, you get 70p off with a code that is kindly pre added at checkout. making them £10.04
(winterdriving was the code i think)

In any case you can either go for quick or cheap, bearing in mind in 5 weeks it will be january. The main reason for the post is because they are a good idea and fairly cheap compared to a broken wrist, considering the amount of people currently filling A+E's across the country. if anyone knows where you can get these in store, please let me know.



"The AA Snow & Ice Grips offer 7 steel studs per cleat which provide excellent traction whilst walking, ideal for keeping your footing in winter snow and ice conditions in short journies.


The AA Snow & Ice Grips are lightweight and compact so you are able to keep them in your car or in a bag ready to tackle the Snow and Ice currently facing the UK. The AA Snow & Ice Grips are easy to fit with a single pull velcro strap and are ideally worn on the ball of your foot. While wearing the snow grips, please ensure they are tight and secure at all time

One size fits all."

FYI here are some for high heels (although i have not really looked into these at all, being that i dont wear high heels):

Better buying a pair of golf shoes with the metal spikes, these can be had cheap due to the fact most courses have banned them.

Mind you I have been getting about fine in a 25 or so year old wellies (can tell the age beacause they are NCB for those old enough to remember the national coal board!)

more than 2 weeks??? Knowing this country, it'll be sunny by then and the flip flops are coming out again!

I bought a pair last year & bought more this year for my family - I can't rate them highly enough & wouldn't be without them now ( I know where I would be without them - on my a**e!)

grabitnow has had better ones for £8 for a while the deal keeps coming round, i bought some as i expect the weather round here to get a bit ruff and they so far have done the bizz, the spikes on them go all over the shoe not like this one with just in the middle...

costco had some ice grips for shoes for about £12 for 2 pair

I was advised to strap tampons to the soles of my shoes. More hindrance than a help if you ask me!

I was thinking about strapping a couple of memory foam pillows on my shoes, and they would look a whole lot less sillier than your idea

The Swedish ones on eBay look good. The seller's comment amused me though

At least you wouldn't get lost in the snow. People could follow the trail.

It works really well.

You look a lot less silly than all the sockless numpties sliding all over the place and falling on their backsides.

Thank you ordered the ones on ebay

I own a pair of yaktrax ..fantastic for getting up shooters hill bought from here 3 years ago
yaktrax.co.uk/yak…hop
these use coils ( instead of spikes) which provide better grip/ traction/stability in all directions all over the shoe sole because each little coil segment digs down
..better than spiky grips as they( spikes) fall out
I can actually run in these on ice / snow ..not that common sense would allow me to !!

they may be OOS on line but best to phone the carshalton store

Thanks for that - they look good!

thanks OP

Another vote for Yaktrax. Tried a number of these types of things and the Yaktrax are outstanding. Easy to put on, they stay put and the grip is superb. The harder the ice becomes the better they perform. It's great to go marching past other people teetering along.

These AA things are cheaper, but they're rubbish. Not enough grip over the whole of your sole and they start to hurt after a hundred yards as they lift part of your foot and make your step unnatural.
Edited by: "Pokey" 3rd Dec 2010

Yeah the Yaktrax ones are great. Seem well designed, work really well and easy to put on.

I'm sure these are a good investment for parts of Britain where ice and snow linger, rather than those most populated areas that panic over a couple of days of light snow and ice disrupting their routine...

Wearing old socks over your shoes (or cloth tied around them) is an old and effective solution for short foot journeys.

Disappointing the dispatch time is 2 to 5 weeks, otherwise would have had them!
