Yep. Live in New England and have had my Bean Boots for ~12 years. I was always cautious when walking on ice / dense pack snow because of the slippage. I got me a pair of sorels with those incredibly tractioned soles a few years ago and I feel like I could sprint on ice now. They also keep my feet much warmer; I had to wear thick socks with my Beans but any socks will do with my Sorels. Beans are now strictly my rain / slush boots.

Edit: It seems I got both pairs of boots before some recently reported dips in quality for both brands, so unfortunately I can’t attest to how well any new versions perform
