I have a pair of old combat boots with very worn soles. I love the damn boots but they are too slippery to wear in the winter

Is there anything I can do to the sole (other than attaching climbing spurs) to make it have more traction in the snow? any ideas?

thank you

Take them to a cobbler? Honestly, that's all I can think of.

ive got an old pair of combats for winter boots too

i think theyre slippery because the rubber in the sole is very hard to begin with and you use them in winter temps they lose all grippyness

Screw new soles on and say "fuck it"

I have to wear them for work when snow or ice present. I usually pair them with an old, broken in pair of boots. They will keep your feet warm and dry and the soles will not wear further when they are on.
