Seen this on WFM. A blast from the past, sort of.

When I was in college, we played intramural broomball (variant of ice hockey that used brooms wrapped with duct tape for sticks, a ball about the size of a large grapefruit, and street shoes or boots; all played on an outdoor ice rink). As you can imagine, it was hard to get your footing and move the ball with little to no traction. One of the kids who lived down the hall bought several cans of liquid tire chain spray from WalMart and a number of us sprayed our shoes before the next game. It made a huge difference. The referees noticed our superior traction and inspected our shoes at half-time. They wanted to disqualify us but there was no rule against it.

The stuff he bought was meant to help you in the case where you needed a little extra traction to get unstuck, but was not meant to be a lasting solution. It went on like a mix of fine sand particulate and spray adhesive. Cool stuff!
