I used #6 Hex-head sheet metal screws to add traction to my trail running
shoes in icy conditions. I used a nut-driver to put about 10-12 of them in
each sole. They screw right into the tread and the hex-heads provide the
traction. 3/8 inch ones are unlikely to poke through to your foot, but 1/2
inchers hold better. They're no substitute for crampons when those are
called for, but they really help in milder conditions.
