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.
