    Group,

    I am sure this has been posted before, but I ask likely yet again.
    Are there barefoot running shoes that have ice cleats of any sort?
    Are there new evolution or technologies?

    I live in Alberta, Canada and run often below 0C - I quit when really cold and when icy!
    I wear a barefoot running shoe most of the time due to on and off gravel - but I am fearful of ice.

    Any help or thoughts would be appreciated!
    Kevin

    I vaguely recall that Icebug had a zero drop shoe with studs. I've made my own studs with 1/4" machine screws. You need a thickish sole for that, though, and that may not meet your definition of minimal.

    I wear Due North spikes as seen in this video.

    They work incredibly well. Another option would be Altra Golden Spike.

    Awesome Darren!

    I have ordered some. I love that they aren't quite another pair of shoes - which I could avoid buying right now!

    Cheers
