Think of ICEtrekkers Chains as tire chains for your feet, perfect for all snow conditions, including packed and crusty surfaces. The durable links are individually TIG welded and made from case hardened steel. The unique ladder pattern under the ball of the foot, combined with the triangular pattern on the heel provides stable footing and is comfortable for extended wear. The hearty rubber sling is flexible in subzero temperatures and stays securely on the footwear even in deep snow. ICEtrekkers Chains are a great value, offering durable traction at an affordable price.
