The ice cleats shown above are the best available in 2020, period. And I make that statement based upon 16+ years of selling ice cleats. However, there is no one best ice cleat for everyone because you must simultaneously consider
There are sprays that supposedly make shoes grip ice better. Reviews are mixed at best. But lets assume they work. This is an extremely non-aggressive approach. This would work best if the ice is perfectly smooth. That's because you need every possible point of contact to grip the ice. The cumulative traction provided by the entire surface of the sole treated with this type of spray provides a tiny fraction of the grip provided by just one aggressive, well-designed stud on an actual Ice Cleat. It's not for walking over rough ice when surface contact with the slippery surface can be very small. The effectiveness of all non aggressive traction approaches also diminishes as temperatures drop because ice becomes more dense.
