Product Description

Looking for an easy-to-use, lightweight traction device for your shoes? Turn to the spikeless Yaktrax Walker traction cleats, which offer 10 times the gripping points as any spike-based traction device. Ideal for pedestrians, the elderly, businesspeople, or anyone else who wants greater stability on ice and snow, the Yaktrax Walkers are terrific for walking to and from work, school, or even the mailbox down the street. (Mountain climbers should consider the Yaktrax Pro cleats, which are designed for more arduous conditions.) Each Yaktrax Walker is made out of an injection-molded thermal plastic elastomer that's lightweight yet durable. The coils are also protected against rusting, with a hand-wound design that provides 360 degrees of traction on ice and snow. Every step you take in the Yaktrax Walker places hundreds of biting edges in direct contact with the ice beneath your feet, with the high-strength horizontal coils providing forward and backward stability while the vertical coil pattern provides side-to-side stability. And thanks to the sturdy outerband--which conforms to the length and width of your boot or shoe--the cleats fit securely throughout the day but slip off in an instant. Suitable for temperatures as low as -41 degrees F, the Yaktrax Walkers have been approved and recommended by the National Health & Wellness Club and the Handyman Club of America. The Yaktrax Walkers are available in extra-small, small, medium, and large sizes.

LOVE these things! They fit easily over any of my boots making me instantly stable in the snow or on icy sidewalks - even my winter boots benefit from them if the conditions are really slippery. I also appreciate how compactly they fold up when not in use - small enough to keep in my purse or stroller and a must-have for your emergency winter car kit. I've run, pushed the car out of the snow, taken the baby out for a walk, hiked and got to work safely in them - they get you out when the weather turns bad AND you can wear them with your everyday shoes or boots so you don't have to sacrifice your style or comfort! Yaktrax are as essential to winter as a good toque!

I sprained my ankle badly 2 months ago, and was worried about winter coming even though I was now walking with general ease. These slip onto my boots in seconds and I can grip slippery snow, sleek ice, everything that this winter has been throwing at us in Toronto, Ontario. I can walk my lab / pointer at a brisk pace and confident that he won't pull me over.

Check often that you are still strapped in when you wear them. In slushy ice, I've lost one temporarily! Maybe it was too wet out and the strap slipped off my boot when nudged by some ice.

Also, my boyfriend has a pair where one of the rubber straps snapped in two places on the bottom when he was walking on sharp sidewalk ice after a storm, but Yaktrax has a 90 day warranty and they have great service! I took pictures of the broken Yaktrax to email them, and they are sending us a new pair!

We have recommended these to everyone we know : )

These YakTrax were purchased to replace a similar pair that finally wore out this (almost) past winter. I used them so much for improved traction that I just left them on a pair of designated snow boots for convenience. As I walk my dog daily, these YakTrax have, literally, been life savers.

These are reviewed so highly, I almost feel bad bringing in a low review. I'm giving it two stars simply because it's quite possible I just got a defective pair, but for the 10 mins they worked I noticed a considerable improvement in traction.

I picked these up for dog walking, my girl can moved fast in the ice and snow and I figured it time I keep up. Sadly, within 15 mins of first putting these on, one of the rubber cross sections that holds the metal coil just snapped. I don't know if the rubber can't handle real 'cold' or maybe it was simply defective? Personally, I'm led to believe that they just aren't made well.

Finally I have no trouble to get out in the winter and since there are no spikes they don't need to be taken off when the ground changes. Nevertheless I wouldn't recommend to use them on tiles, but to cross such sections is possible. On icy ground they provide a very good grip and again since there are no spikes they are comfortable to walk.
Compared to the "one size fit all" version these fit much better smaller size shoes and the gripping surface is where it should be under the sole and not somewhere on the side as it happens often with the others.

Having to pull them off and on before buildings and roads (I don't bother if snowy/icy enough) is a pain in the butt, but they otherwise work awesomely. I have to walk down a massive hill to get to work, and back up to get home, and live up in Nunavut. These little gems haven't made me miss a step yet! Even on really sharp vertical areas! Worth the pain in the butt, except for the fact I gotta put them on with my bare fingers, as my gloves can't manage it. Exposing my hands to those kinda temperatures is not fun.

These Yaktrax boot grips are the best I have ever had. Much sturdier than other ones I have purchased. They do give you a good grip on the ice, which we certainly needed this winter.

I have recommended these to many of my friends and acquaintances and continue to do so. I know of a few people who have purchased them once I told them about these and they are very happy with them.

Top of the line!!

These work extremely well. We use them daily for dog walking both on icy surfaces and also in deep or hard packed snow. We have had several sets over the years as they do wear out / break eventually. CAUTION: The hooked end of the springs at the back of the unit become slightly uncoiled and can catch on carpets , etc literally stopping you in your tracks. Use pliers to crimp them back in place.
