'Snow tires for your feet'

Even for those willing to brave cold weather for outdoor activities, ice can be a powerful detractor. Whether you're exercising outdoors or just running errands, the journey can be perilous.

The STABILicers SPORT by 32north offers some much-needed slip protection with its unique cleat-and-tread design. And you don't have to give up your favorite boots or shoes to wear them — just slip the device over existing footwear and head outside.

Marketed as "snow tires for your feet," the product lives up to the hype. It's made from a durable TPE elastomer that is lightweight and has a good shape memory to reduce stretching. It covers both your heel and forefoot with a special tension-fit binding to ensure it stays on securely. It features cleats that grip ice, snow, rock or pavement. Even better, the cleats are replaceable, which helps ensure they last through several winters. The device was designed with sports enthusiasts in mind, so they're great for many outdoor winter activities, including running and hiking.

Price is $39.95. For purchase locations, see www.32north.com.
