Another icy day here in Glasgow so decided to try out the Yaktrax Pro’s that arrived the other day. When I ordered them there was only medium so I bought those. Medium is up to size 9 so I was hoping they would be okay.
Here is the box they arrived in ….
and the product from the box ….
I took some photos and video clips and put them together to give you an idea of what they are like (lasts about 3mins) …..
I must say I was very impressed. I ran this route yesterday and was slipping and sliding and having to find bits of better ground to the side of the path to run on but today I could run down the middle and felt confident.
It took a few minutes to have confidence that they were going to do the job but once I was used to them I ran without any fears. The only time I had to be cautious was going down a steep path which was sheet ice. Without them I couldn’t have even walked it so they still did their job.
The guy I asked to do the video clip of me running said he’d seen me run by on my first loop and couldn’t work out how I was staying upright. I also saw another runner going the other way struggling to keep his footing.
Yaktrax Pro are available from http://www.yaktrax.co.uk/ for £19.95. Maybe I should ask for a commission? Maybe this could be my new job!!
