Would it work to bung on a few hobnails (where they won't interfere with crampons) to deal with slippery walk-ins?

No - they'll just pull out of rubber soles

In reply to nniff: oook... Sportiva website says "they simply screw into any rubber-soled shoe"

Different sort of rubber between shoes and mountain boots?

Maybe then - not come across screw in ones before.

I've always been intrigued by the screw-in types. I know for a fact that regular old fashioned nails can't be fitted to rubber soled boots.
