Walking Safely with SPIKYS

Walking Safely with SPIKYS

When winter brings the snow and ice it yields a landscape that is both picturesque yet potentially deadly. Slips, trips and falls account for 15% of all accidental deaths, second only to automobile fatalities, and icy surfaces are a major cause of this.

Foothealthcare. com have got their hands on a revolutionary Occupational Health and Safety product that will change the lives of those that live, work or play in environments that are potentially dangerous due to ice and snow.

SPIKYS are rubber straps that fit over shoes or boots to prevent slipping. The ingenious device provides reassurance at all times during those icy months, as SPIKYS can be worn over any shoe or boot, including dress shoes.

SPIKYS are manufactured from 76% natural rubber and 24% high-grade synthetic rubber, which give them the ability to stretch to 6.5 times their original length and allowing them to accommodate a limitless variety of footwear.

There are a number of small perforations in the rubber, which help to increase the elasticity of the SPIKYS. This innovative feature allows for optimum comfort and permits the SPIKYS to be worn all day without pinching or squeezing the foot.

SPIKYS don't feature buckles or straps, but instead, an easy to use heel tab allows the SPIKYS to be put on or removed quickly and without fuss. The SPIKYS can be worn whilst driving and can be neatly folded into their compact pocket size Zip-Loc bag, so you can take your SPIKYS anywhere.

The actual spikes are made from hardwearing widia steel, and tests have shown that after six years of constant use the spikes have only worn down to less than a millimetre, so SPIKYS will give you safer footing and reassurance time after time.

SPIKYS are ideal for those experiencing slippery surfaces caused by ice or snow such as postal workers, construction workers, farmers, winter walkers, early bird commuters or even Ice Rink workers, all of which will find these shoe grips an irreplaceable asset.

There are two different SPIKYS to choose from: - the SPIKY which covers the sole of the shoe, and SPIKY PLUS which covers the sole AND heel for extra safe treading.
