Love the outdoors? Run and hike often? Excellent. Pick up those $150 running shoes and get ready to invest another $60 in them. You’ll be getting a set of Microspikes; designed and produced by Kahtoola. Think snow chains for your shoes. As you hike and jog over icy surfaces, you’ll be laughing with total confidence. Those other hikers? Amateurs. You’re an expert and you know how to spend money like one.
Seriously, though. If you’re into this kind of stuff or want to know more about what snow chains can for you, read Kevin Kelly’s review of Microspikes.
