Confidence underfoot in packed ice and snow can be found by wearing Yaktrax traction devices for any types of footwear.
Yaktrax Ice traction Devices originated in the U.S and distributed by Yaktrax.Implus.com. The idea was inspired by observing a seasoned Sherpa up in the Himalayas striding confidently over slick ice and thick snow and the sure footed Tibetan yak. The footwear the Sherpa was using sparked the idea for Yaktrax pantented coil technology.
Incredibly successful in the United States, Yaktrax provides much needed help for athletes, construction crews, public service workers and anyone who works or plays in the winter weather in packed snow and icy conditions.
There has been nothing available like this in the U.K till Autumn 2003 when the Francis family who own an unrelated gardening business in Surrey, England were looking to keep themselves safe and upright whilst walking their dog in the local park in the cold winter. After researching a while they found Yaktrax and after buying for friends and family they decided the product was so good that they asked to become the U.K's sole distributors.
Yaktrax devices can be fitted on any types of footwear, not just walking boots, are compact so can be folded into a handbag or daysack and lightweight too. Constructed from rust free coils to give 360 degrees of traction on ice and snow, these are perfect for this country's slippy, ice packed pavements. Ideal for the elderly, commuters and walkers.
