Slip sliding away, 27 Jan 2011
My current pair of winter boots (not Hi-Tec), which I have had for 2 yrs and have worn all the way through two severe winters for walking, needed replacing. I chose these based on customer reviews which claim to have had no problem with sliding in icy conditions. I SLID ALL THE WAY DOWN MY DRIVE. My drive is sloped so I really need boots that have proper grip. These don't. I found walking my dog very precarious as everywhere we tried to walk was covered in several inches of thick ice. I have had to order slip on spikes. They are very warm and waterproof, but not slip proof. I would advise precaution when purchasing these.
