Get a grip
It’s finally starting to feel a little more wintry; the mornings are fresher and the temperature is beginning to drop. ‘Hurrah!’ we hear you cry. But, amidst longing for ‘proper’ winter weather, let’s not forget the perils that arrive with it – namely, ice. Nothing will wipe that cheery smile off your face quicker than striding out on a frosty morning, head and spirits held high, only to hit ice in your worn-out old boots; bruised bottoms and egos all round. Supatracks, experts in terrain access solutions, provide an ingenious solution to this old problem with their Best Grip boot studs. As long as you have managed to retain a measly 6.2mm of tread on the ‘old reliables’, then you can screw in a few Best Grip studs and enjoy renewed (and improved) grip and confidence. The studs, which come in three lengths to suit varying needs and terrains, effectively prevent you slipping on icy or slick
ground, and also provide extra grip to aid your progress when walking on moss, wet timber, seaweed and wet grass. They can be screwed into any kind of boots, wellies or waders, and come with a tool to help you easily attach them. They have a wide plane helix thread providing optimum retention in the boot material, and the tungsten carbide core is both socketed and micro-brazed into the stud carrier to provide incredible durability.
Our shooting expert, Will Edwards says: “It’s been a real challenge getting around on the shooting estates this season – a cross between off-road rally driving and an SAS training exercise. It’s going to get a lot colder, possibly freezing at night; these studs will then come into their own.”
RRP: 66p per stud; £20 for set of 20, including installation tool; £42 for set of 50, including installation tool
