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.

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 : )
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.
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.
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!!

Metal coils worn out in less then three weeks, then the rubber worn out shortly after that. Then the worst thing is it does not work on thick ice, and I fell because on it. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Amck

Terrific - got me through the icy winter walking the dog.
No falls this year.
The "not too hairy out there" version that works well in most situations, but just in case we also have more serious hardware for the purpose. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Hans-Joerg Mueller
Wears well in the snow, still a little slippery on the ice. Living in northern Alberta the Yak Trax were on my boots most of the winter and helped walking most of the time.Published 10 months ago by Julie Wright
What I love most about these vs. other cleats is that they put less of a strain on my legs, they allow me to walk more naturally. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Philippe Tremblay
