The Best Nonslip Traction Devices

After more than twelve hours of testing fifteen different traction devices on water-slicked ice, hard-packed snow, and slippery hills in Alaska’s city sidewalks and forested trails, we’ve identified the ICEtrekkers Diamond Grip as the best ice gripper for all-around walking use in the city. They’re easy to put on and walk in but still offer great traction on all but the slickest hills as long as you weigh enough to press the low-profile spikes into the ice. We also identified a few options that will work well for lighter walkers. We also tested speciality running shoes with built-in traction control, since runners will want to choose something that doesn’t affect their gait.
