Some form of crampons for vulnerable people on ice

You know those wheelie sneakers that elementary-age kids have? I would like to invent the crampons version of that. We all know how dangerous snow and ice can be for the elderly. If they (or anyone else, for that matter) had shoes with little studs, it would vastly increase traction. The ideal would be if the studs could be somehow retractable, so they didn't damage floors.

I don't actually have any reasonable ideas for implementing retractable shoe studs, mind you, I am just thinking how useful they could be.
