Introducing Pyramid Studs: What Are They And How To Install Them
Pyramid Studs are small pyramid-shaped metal plates installed on the bottom of shoes to prevent slipping. Pyramid studs come in different sizes, and they are typically placed in pairs for both boots. Pyramid studs have been around since the 1800s when they were first invented by a man named Samuel Maud, who was tired of his ice skates sliding out from under him every time he went skating. Pyramid studs offer an inexpensive way to keep your feet from slipping while you’re walking or running outside on icy surfaces like sidewalks, steps, or driveways.
Pyramid studs work well with any type of shoe. Still, they are often used with dressy winter boots or dressier summer sandals that don’t have much traction on the bottom. Pyramid studs are also popular with people who have to walk in snow or icy conditions for their jobs, such as mail carriers and police officers.
Pyramid studs come mounted onto an aluminum sheet (or a plastic disk) about half an inch thick, then punched into a shoe sole. Pyramid studs are sold in packages of 12 or 14 and will last for many months with regular use, so it’s easy to have replacements on hand when they need replacing.
