There's a fix for this and it's easy. Just take them outside on pavement and scuff them up. The finish they use on the foam outsoles makes them slippery. If you scuff them up and take off the shine they work fine. Gives they a good amount of traction, but when it comes to ice not much helps unless you use ice spikes. But the scuffing method does help if you feel they are slippery.

I've been using Thirty Two for years and after scuffing the outsoles I've never had too many issues after that.
