Got an e-mail about this today from Groupon... I have had a pair for about 5 years and they're spot on when the weather gets bad. Last year I used them at numerous RTCs, out on foot for POLSA searches, and even helped push a bus up a hill (with the help of it's passengers and some dust sheets!). The issue isn't so much just the snow, but the sheet ice that often lays over roads prior to salting.
They're usually £24.99 but bought via Groupon they're £6.99 while the deal is on. Given how rubbish the gritters are round my way I think they're a really great buy at that price, hence why I thought i'd put the post on here.
I'd suggest going a size higher than your boots if your work boots are particularly bulky.
...Groupon is proving so handy for stocking fillers this year, everyone who knows me is getting a pair.
