What: YakTrax Walkers, $15-$19

Why: Slick ice and densely packed snow can take down even the most dexterous among us. Take my oh-so-graceful dismount from my front porch the other morning —the scene rivaled the Joe Pesci vs. the ice-covered steps episode in Home Alone. And walking the sidewalks of Chicago, I've seen my fair share of people felled by slippery sidewalks. When even traction-conscious snow boots aren't enough, there are YakTrax.

The concept is simple: steel coils are wrapped around a stretchy framework that slips over your shoes, gripping at the toe and heel. The tiny teeth give you traction on even the blackest of ice, and, best of all, you can wear them with any shoes. That means no buying a pair of boots dedicated solely to your commute. YakTrax are practically weightless and slip on and off with minimal effort; just roll 'em up and stick 'em in a Ziploc bag when you arrive at your final destination.
