Non Slip Ice Shoes: Why They Are Not 100% Reliable

roof damage from snow and ice

Slipping on ice is a common occurrence that can be dangerous. If you are in the winter, there is a good chance that at some point, you will experience slipping on ice or snow when walking around. However, despite the frequency of this problem, there are not many products available to help prevent it. One option is non-slip ice shoes which are designed to keep your feet from slipping out from under you while walking on slippery surfaces. However, they do not work 100 percent of the time, so there are still risks associated with using them.

Non-Slip Ice Shoes Are Designed To Help You Avoid Slipping On Ice.

Ice shoes are designed to help you avoid slipping on ice. This can come in handy if you’re hiking or playing in the snow. But what exactly are ice shoes? And how do they work? Ice shoes are slip-resistant but not 100% reliable. They have an aggressive tread pattern that makes it easier to grip icy surfaces and prevents your feet from skidding when you walk on them.

The Non-Slip Ice Shoes Are Not 100% Reliable.

Ice shoes are not 100% reliable. The chance of falling is still there even if you use them correctly. However, they can help reduce the risk of falling by up to 50%. They also provide extra grip and support which makes it easier to walk on slippery surfaces like snow or ice.

How To Be 100% Safe On Ice? Use Traction Agents.

Some traction agents, such as sawdust or sand, or kitty litter act as temporary solutions to a far bigger problem. They become clumpy or mix with the ice water, making them difficult to walk on. Besides, our shoes track the dirt inside the premises, making it dirty. We have to clean the premises. With Traction Magic, you can avoid all these problems, as the residue does not stick to the sole of your shoes and does not track itself inside. It helps to keep your rugs, mats, and floor clean. As you may already know never use salt for new concrete.


The most common mistake made when using these products is overconfidence in their ability to keep you from falling while walking on ice-covered surfaces or uneven terrain. Never assume that they will work perfectly every time, and always exercise caution when walking on slippery surfaces with them on your feet.
