A Great Day to Wear Your ‘Yak Trax': Jonny Learns Something New
As Renee and I were discussing the danger of just walking outside in this icy weather, she suddenly blurted out, “that’s why I’m wearing my Yak Trax…
“Yak Trax?” I queried. Let me see them!
She lifted her foot and show me a spring like device that criss-crossed the sole of her sneaker. I was surprised. I asked her where she got them and she said she picked them up last year during a live broadcast at Eddie Bauer in the Marketplace at Augusta.
We continued our Yak Trax chat for a minute or so when I decided I’d write about them and encourage anyone who has elderly relatives they worry about slipping and falling to consider these as a gift!
For me, these will come in handy just navigating my driveway, which has a 45 degree slope, to get to the mailbox.
