Do those work well on plain ice? I was thinking of getting a pair because there are a lot of ice patches on sidewalks at downspouts in my neighborhood, and walking to work can be an, um, adventure.
They work great for ice and snow. Dangerous on tile floor (don't walk into a store with them on).

Or full crampons and an ice axe.
