I have a question about anti-sliding (on ice at winter) gadget for boots.

  • Looking for a life hack perhaps?

  • @Laurel actually I was thinking about product recommendation.

    Yeah, recommendation questions aren't really accepted here on the Stack Exchange network, with the narrow exceptions of software and hardware. See Why are "shopping list" questions bad? for why. Nov 3 '19 at 0:48

    I would avoid phrasing the question as a shopping recommendation. Is there a related or more general question that may be useful to you that is OK for SE? Example: how to prevent boots from sliding on ice under such and such conditions? This one can be answered not only by product links. Nov 3 '19 at 1:09
