Named for the nimble Tibetan yak, which makes its way gracefully across icy terrain, Yaktrax will help you walk confidently in slippery conditions. They comprise a rubber upper that pulls on over your boot or shoe, with coils or chains underneath to grab onto the ground. There are a dozen different kinds (see our guide to the 12 types of Yaktrax for more details), loads of which are currently on sale for Black Friday.
