Is  winter cramping your style and making New Year’s resolutions like going for a daily run hard to keep?

When slippery conditions conspire against you, Hillsound’s Trail Crampon Ultra lets you run without fear of falling. Essentially chains for your foot, it slips over your running shoe to give you traction even on black ice.

The Trail Crampon—made from strong stainless steel and featuring 18 spikes under each foot—is aggressive but still low-profile. With each foot strike, the chains and spikes dig into the ground without sliding on the shoe’s sole.

The slip-on design takes less than 30 seconds to put on, and it’s just as easy to take off even if you’re wearing gloves. You also don’t need to adjust the crampons while you’re out on the trail. I found the Trail Crampon works as well for winter hiking as it does for trail running, and it’s light enough to throw into your backpack just in case the route gets slick.
