Competitively priced and perfect for wintery trail runs, the FreeSteps6 crampon outfits your running shoe with a web of lightweight stainless-steel chains and spikes. The relatively small spikes hit a happy medium in terms of traction—enough to lend grippy confidence on icy or snowy trails, but not so pronounced that they feel clunky underfoot. The rubber webbing that wraps your foot disperses pressure evenly, eliminating pressure points on the top of your foot. Five sizes available, fitting from a women’s 5 up to men’s 15.
