Continuing with our January topic of winter fall prevention, we bring you YakTrax walkers. YakTrax are stretchy rubber straps that pull on over the soles of your shoes or boots, and have metal coils to help grip icy walking surfaces. They’re lightweight, come in a variety of sizes and are very affordable at $15 to $25. Shop on amazon.com, walmart.com, REI, Dick’s and other online and big box sporting goods stores. We think YakTrax are another important tool for your winter fall prevention toolbox.
