As far as crampons for approach shoes you will want these features:
Universal binding system. Plastic toe and heel baskets will fit on any shoe or boot and when fitted correctly provide a solid connection.
Flexible connection bar. As far as I know, only Grivel Air Tech/(Lite) offers flexible steel bars and Petzl uses cord. This effectively eliminates the movement that can loosen straps as well as placing stress on a an inflexible bar.
