Native Angeleno new to DC, and even with my snail-pace shuffle, I am still slipping left and right during my walk to the subway. If you spend a lot of time walking on icy roads, what do you use to gain a stable footing and traction? Online, I've found LL Bean Stabilicers, YakTrax,
and select shoes by The North Face
that are supposed to have better traction because of "Ice Pick™ temperature-sensitive outsole lugs." Before I spend a bunch of money on any of these, I'd like to know - what do you use that works?
Is there some secret snow walk I should know? HELP.

I tried Keen's Hoodoo High Lace Boots
and promptly landed on my butt right outside my building front door. Any advice will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
