Traction Aids

Due North® All Purpose Traction Aid

The Due North® All Purpose Traction Aids are ideal for those who walk, run or work outdoors and require more stability and increased traction. Whether you're an industrial worker or someone who just needs extra stability in winter conditions, the enhanced design and improved shape of these Traction Aids will give you the extra confidence you need when walking or running on icy and snowy conditions. The increased traction will help with preventing slips and falls on ice and snow, which will help reduce the risk of pulled muscles, fractured bones or even back problems caused by a quick slip or fall. When not in use, the compact design makes them easy to store in small places such as, your coat pocket, handbag, briefcase or the glove box in your vehicle.

Product Features:

  • Enhanced rubber compound provides added traction and secure fit while retaining elasticity in subzero temperatures.
  • Geometrically designed top webbing and improved shape provides a more comfortable and secure fit on a greater variety of footwear.
  • Knurled, textured lining and wide, thick heel strap grips footwear better and helps keep traction aids in place for longer wear and optimal performance.
  • 6 Tungsten Carbide Due North® Ice Diamond™ Spikes, along with the bi-directional tread, provides powerful traction with maximum grip.

Everyday Size Chart

"Due North® All Purpose Traction Aids were invaluable during my walk around the world this winter. They were the 100% correct product for the thousands of miles I covered in icy and snowy conditions that were, at times, very treacherous. Without them it would have been very difficult to pull my 300 lb trailer. Due North® All Purpose Traction Aids are the best winter traction product I have ever used!"

"I've been bummed that my running has been halted by a snowy/icy winter. I just purchased this item and went for a run on the icy sidewalks (in the dark no less) and did not slip or fall once. These are an amazing product and I'm so happy to be able to get off the treadmill and into the outdoors again!!"

"2 inches of snow and snowing. Provided great traction. Keeping me outdoors and off the treadmill!"

"Great product, esp. on icey surfaces! My shoe size is 8.5 and I have the mediums but would recommend going up to size large for anything over size 9."

"I'm a letter carrier and Canada Post started issuing these a couple of years ago. They are the best! I still use precaution but I'm definately not stiff and sore from tensing my muscles while on my route. I'm really impressed."

"These things are nothing short of amazing! It feels like I have claws on my feet! I cold never have imagined that six little spokes could provide so much traction and actually make it fun to run in icy conditions."
