Vibram Artic Grip: A new sole for boots & shoes for people that spend a lot of time on ice

For three years, early in my athletic training career, I provided medical coverage for youth ice hockey tournaments in La Crosse, Wisconsin.  When these young athletes would get injured on the ice, I would shuffle out, focus on keeping my nose over my toes and do my best not to slip and hurt the athlete or myself.  It's too bad they didn't invent Vibram Artic Grip 17 years ago!

Six boot and shoe companies (Caterpillar, Merrell, Saucony, Wolverine, Sperry Top-Sider & Hush Puppies) have partnered with Vibram to offer winter boots and shoes that give you better traction on ice*.
