I don’t know how the folks at Vibram do what they do so well. Their new Arctic Grip soles can keep three times the traction on ice than the best alternatives, and it does it without using studs or spikes. It actually works and is incredible. Wet or dry they stick to the ground. It’s available on a few boots now and will almost surely be on footwear all over the place in a short amount of time. I almost wish they would start making all kinds of stuff so we could get this kind of innovation in other areas of life.
