Is It Easy to Walk with Yaktrax?

Always check you Yaktrax are on correctly before you set off. Make extra sure that:
- The word 'heel' or 'toe on your Yaktrax are pressed against your shoe (they should not be visible or the device is inside out).
- The coils sit flat against the soles of your shoes and do not go past its edge.
- The outer band rests against the outer edge of your footprint (this should not be caught on the sole).
