Just because it is snowing in your area, that does not mean you can’t go out and have fun. If you are dealing with lots of snow and ice, you should think about getting a pair of winter boots. The Meindl Spikes Boots are quite special. They have retractable spikes. The spikes are generated in the sole. You can retract the spikes without having to take your boots off. Just flip out the dial in the heel and turn it 360 degrees. You don’t have to worry about getting wet thanks to triple-layer seals around the spikes and dial. Not cheap but innovative.
