Might I recommend these. I've had mine for the last three Winters. They fit over any shoe or boot, are extremely well made, and work. I feel confident striding around, even on sheet ice.

LUL .. that pic always reminds of the the HALT! .. Hammer Zeit

And for the booty chains and what not .. I already had the box of SS screws, and why spend loads more money on the booty chains. Sure they're removable .. but I pretty much only use these boots in the winter.

Sadly, just found out they're not available in the US. Supposedly the company has a US counterpart, but they say that the US product isn't as good. Thanks for the suggestion though, big gee!
