You could say that non-slip shoes and snow crampons are the "beginner’s" version of mountaineering crampons. You could certainly never go mountaineering wearing a pair of non-slip shoes; however they do share many features with mountaineering crampons: a flexible or rigid structure that you put over your boots and that has crampons or spikes in the sole to prevent your foot from slipping on packed or frozen snow.
Non-slip boots are perfect for hiking in all circumstances, enjoying the snow on hiking trails or even in ski resorts, and avoiding the inconvenience and risks of slippery terrains. Simply slip them into your backpack and they'll be there when you need them, ready to accompany you on all your snowy adventures.
Finally (we keep going on about it, but it’s for your own good), if you are more interested in preventing yourself from sinking into the snow than preventing falls, then snowshoes are what you need. They are designed to support your weight so that you stay on the surface of the snow rather than sinking into it. Discover our whole range of snowshoes, for both adults and children, here.
