GET-A-GRIP...with your footing, that is, ON THOSE ICY WALKWAYS! My Winter TIP!

By
Real Estate Agent with LakeView Realty Enterprises, Inc DRE 01235311

When you're live in a four-seasons' area, you really need to be prepared for ALL of them. We're in the mist of winter, and after a couple of snow storms, I thought I'd share with you AN "ugly" little secretI have that helps me STAY IN A VERTICAL POSITION when I'm walking on icy walkways/driveway, etc (or up until now they have). These not-so-stylish black things in the photos below, are called GET-A-GRIP. I bought them a year ago on QVC and I have been thankful ever since.    I think most hardware stores carry these, or similar ones.  WHAT DO YOU USE TO STAY ON YOUR FEET WHEN DEALING WITH ICE?

(okay they're really ugly, but hey, I'd rather be unfashionable, than be laid up in a cast) They have little cleas thingies on the bottom that grip on ice.

(This is how they look after you pull them over your shoes/boots--very easy to put on and take off)

NO, I DIDN'T CLEAN THEM BEFORE PUTTING THE ON--I was heading out the door. LOL

Kat,

I still need to get myself a pair of these for when I am up in the mountains, so I don't slip and slide!  Even though the non-skid pull-overs aren't very attractive, you sure made them look stylish when you put them over your red suede & fur boots! ;0)

Michelle: Ah... yes, my stylish boots. LOL   BUT the Ge-aGrips fit over any size and style shoe.    I USED to love slipping and sliding, in the old days. NOT so much fun now that I'm old.  LOL
