There's a wintry chill in the air, and it's time to dig out your cozy sweaters, thick socks, and winter cleats. Don't have any? Not to worry – Amazon has heaps, and there's 25% off for the Black Friday weekend.
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.

Yaktrax Pro Traction Cleats:
$34.99 $27.80 at Amazon
Save $7.19 These are similar to the Walk Traction Cleats above, but with larger coils and a Velcro strap across the top, which helps them fasten snugly over different sized shoes and boots, and prevents them slipping off when you're walking uphill.
Yaktrax Run Traction Cleats:
$44.99 $38.24 at Amazon
Save $6.75 More speed means you need more traction, and these sports Yaktrak have 3mm spikes added underneath so you don't have to abandon your training when the temperature drops. These help me maintain my training schedule ready for spring races, and come highly recommended if you don't want to do all your winter runs on a treadmill.
