IMPORTANT Sizing Tips!

Yaktrax Walk run small. If your shoe size is at the top of a size range shown below you may be better off getting the next larger size especially if you plan to wear them over heavy boots or shoes. If you can't decide go with the bigger size.

Tips for Choosing Colors

Get different colors so you can easily tell them apart when there's more than one Yaktrax user in your home.

Consider Glow Green if you'll be using Yaktrax a lot at night. You'll be safer because they glow in the dark for improved visibility. It will also help you find them if you drop one.

Yaktrax Walker on Stairs
"Yaktrax… the Eighth Wonder of the World!
Seriously, Yaktrax should be used by every person who lives with snow and ice! Years ago I purchased a converted lake house with 29 steps. After a number of falls over a number of years I was getting pretty frustrated. I learned about Yaktrax by accident about four years ago, And since that time I have not had one "accident" on the ice! I have given these to so many of my friends and family members. With Yaktrax, you can walk or jog in the winter, tap dance on a frozen lake, or zoom up and down 29 icy steps with no fear! I also love giving them to my guests when they come to visit me. I’m no spring chicken... but I’m confident I won’t break anything over the winter!" Christine M., New Milford, CT 2/15/2010.

"This item is a necessity to own and use during icy and snowy conditions. Their lightweight use and quick attachment to shoes makes them a plus, with many stars to follow. Having fallen a number of times, they are certainly a joy to be in the upright position, then laying on the cold ice like a vacationing Harbor Seal. You can't go wrong to own a pair or two, and the cost is more than affordable. Walter Chow, Brooklyn, New York " , Brooklyn, NY 3/12/14

"I purchased two pairs as gifts as I have been using a pair of my own for several years. They certainly lessen the "fear factor" of walking on slippery surfaces.

"They're great on snow, and give you a reasonable amount of traction on ice. They stay on my shoes very securely, but are not too difficult to take on or off. The one complaint I have is that I was really looking for something that works equally well on bare pavement and on covered surfaces, since the areas I walk include a combination of both (e.g. sidewalks or parking lots with icy patches, or snow-covered paths with periodic clean areas). The Yaktrax are not very secure on cleared surfaces, and it probably wears them out very quickly. While they're removable, it's not practical to take them on and off, on and off, as you're walking along. However, for what they are intended, they are excellent!" , Bryn Mawr, PA 01/19/14

Yaktrax Run Features & Specifications

Man running wearing Yaktrax Run
Yaktrax Run is an ice traction device specifically designed for running shoes to provide traction while running on ice and packed snow. It uses a hybrid traction system of spikes and hand-wound steel coils.
  • The Run gives you better traction running on ice and packed snow because it uses a combination of six aggressive carbide steel spikes combined with the time tested and durable 1.4mm stainless steel coils found on the Yaktrax Pro.
  • Your traction is improved still further because the Run has an specific anatomic right/left design. The carbide spikes are arranged to align with how your foot strikes the ground.
  • The Run is durable and fits more securely on your running shoes because it has strong, real rubber straps with a formed toe and a Velcro security strap.
  • You're safer running at after dark because of reflectors built into the front, heel, Velcro strap and even the bottom straps.
  • They add no noticeable weight to your running shoes because they're only 9.7 - 11.7 oz
  • They're easy to put on even in low temperatures because they stay flexible to -41°F
  • Manufacturer: Implus Corporation
  • Made in China

Yaktrax Benefits

Yaktrax easily stretch over most regular footwear.

...including dress shoes, casual shoes, sneakers, running shoes, work and snow boots and function like tire chains for your shoes.
  • Stretching allows them to fit a wider range of shoe sizes and types than competing ice traction devices.
  • They don't work with spike heels, designer boots or ski boots.

Yaktrax are easy to use.

  • You walk naturally the way you do on dry pavement because there are no special skills to learn.
  • They're easy to put on and take off your shoes. Click the How to Put On Shoes Tab above.

You get amazing traction on packed snow and ice.

That's because the patented spikeless SKIDLOCK™ System grips the ice 360° with hundreds of biting edges.
  • Horizontal coils provide forward and backward stability and bite on icy surfaces when you heel hits the ground
  • Vertical coils provided side-to-side stability giving you amazing traction on ice and packed snow.
  • Coils are hand wound stainless steel.
  • The Yaktrax Run uses a hybrid system of coils and carbon steel spikes and is specifically designed for winter running.

Straps are flexible and durable.

  • Injected molded elastomer straps in the Walk
  • Tough real rubber compound straps in the Pro and Run
  • Outer band conforms to the length and width of the shoe or boot.
  • Stay snugly on your shoe offering unhindered ease of movement.
  • Have memory and return to their original size and shape.
  • Stay flexible to -41°F.

Walking is comfortable.

It doesn't feel like you're "walking on marbles".

There are three models... the Walk, Pro and Run.

  • Both the Walk and Pro use the same revolutionary SKIDLOCK spikeless traction system consisting of abrasion resistant stainless steel coils. Both give you the same great traction on ice and packed snow. There are no sharp points or edges. That's important because there's nothing that could injure you in a fall and because no traction device can absolutely guarantee that you won't fall.  
  • The Run uses a combination steel coils and hardened carbon steel spikes and is specifically designed for running shoes.

You'll get good wear.

  • The Yaktrax Walk straps are made from a strong poly elastomer material with hand-wound, long-lasting, abrasion resistant 1.2 mm stainless steel coils.
  • The Yaktrax Pro uses a tougher real rubber compound with reinforced nubs at high wear points and has thicker 1.4 mm stainless steel coils. A Velcro® Performance Strap to helps keep them on you footwear during more vigorous activities or when walking through deep and particularly wet snow.
  • Note: Yaktrax are light to medium duty ice traction devices and fulfill the needs of probably 90% of the people visiting this page. But they're not for everyday use. They're not for frequent, long hikes and certainly not for anything off road. And while reviews are overwhelmingly positive the negative reviews usually result from them breaking in situations they're not designed to accommodate.

    If you live in an area where you practically live in your ice cleats, wear them for extended periods of time or for off road use you need a professional grade ice traction device. Visit SlipResistant.net now to find professional grade, heavy duty ice cleats.

The Walk and Pro won't damage shoes and most floors.
But...

  • NEVER WEAR ANY Yaktrax MODEL INDOORS because the smooth coils are very slippery on dry smooth surfaces like those found in grocery or drug stores. The Run has sharp spikes that will damage floors.
  • DON'T DRIVE while wearing Yaktrax because the straps can catch on pedals.
  • If you feel you would have problems putting on and removing an ice traction device... or you plan to use them in a city or where you're constantly go in and out of doors... consider ALTRAGRIPS-LITE™ Low Profile Ice Cleats.
     
    Read more Safety Tips...

You'll always have ice grips when you need them.

  • They're flexible so you can fold them up and fit in your pocket, glove compartment, purse or briefcase. They stay flexible even in the coldest weather... down to -41°.
  • There's nothing sharp to damage your things.
  • They're lightweight... just 7.7 oz or less!

Stop worrying about slipping on icy and snowy steps!
"Yaktrax have changed my life this winter.  I had hip surgery (at age 61) a year ago and my greatest fear was falling on the ice during the winter.  I found your Yaktrax in a catalog and have been comfortable ever since.  I now am able to get to my car down a large hill where my garage is located.  I also am able to walk to town if I need to.  Keep up the good work and make them safer and safer for us!"   Sydney,  Woodstock, VT
"What a great device!  I had to try them out today and did walk/jog along the footpath of a lake in one of the local towns.  I got some funny looks, but only because I was moving so quickly and sure-footed when everyone else was slipping away!  Believe me, I am a general surgeon, and have spent enough time assisting my orthopedic colleagues on numerous hip, elbow and wrist fractures."  Carl, MD   Melrose, Massachusetts

Application:    
Light duty. Occasional trips to the mailbox, walking from the car to the store or work, short walks with the dog. For ice and packed snow.

The Walk is often better for older folks or for people with problems with their hands because it's easier to stretch over your footwear than the pro.

Medium Duty. Can be used for any of the activities listed for the Walk but is heavier duty for outdoor sports or work. For ice and packed snow. Better for longer or more frequent walks. It can be used for running but the Yaktrax Run would be a much better choice.

If you are constantly walking on rough terrain consider industrial strength ice cleats.

Winter Running. This model is specifically designed for running shoes.
Construction:    
Elastomer straps. 1.2mm diameter hand-wound stainless steel coils. They retain their shape and stay flexible at extremely low temperatures (-41°F) so they're always easy to put on and take off. Uni-Foot. Real rubber compound is tougher and thicker than the elastomer straps used on the Yaktrax Walk. The stainless steel wire is thicker 1.4mm diameter hand-wound stainless steel coils that will last longer in harsher conditions. Uni-Foot. Real rubber compound is tough. The stainless steel wire is thicker 1.4mm diameter hand-wound stainless steel coils. Six carbon steel spikes. Anatomic right and left design.
Technology:    
Both the Walk and the Pro use the same proven, innovative SKIDLOCK system that gives you hundreds of biting edges in all directions. The quality of traction is the same for both the Walk and Pro models. The Yaktrax Pro will just last longer... especially under tougher conditions. Uses a combination of six aggressive carbide steel spikes combined with the time tested and durable 1.4mm stainless steel coils found on the Yaktrax Pro.

Spikes are ideally positioned where each foot strikes the ground because Yaktrax Run has an Anatomic Right and Left Design.

Ease of Use:    
There are no special skills to learn and stretch over your regular shoes in seconds. I think the Walk is usually the better choice for elderly people because the thinner straps make it a little easier to put on. But really, it's not a big deal and many elderly customers buy the Yaktrax Pro and love them. Like the Yaktrax Walk there are no special skills to learn so you can just walk or even run on packed snow and ice the same way you do on dry payment.

The Pro has Velcro strap (see below) which is another step when you put them on. But if you don't need it you can remove it.

No special skills. Run the same as you do on dry pavement.

Yaktrax Pro Removable Strap
Most people have very little trouble with Yaktrax coming off their shoes. But they can come off when you walk through deep snow and particularly deep wet snow. If you walk through deeper snow often the stronger straps and mounting design of the Pro should be considered.

The Pro also has a removable Velcro® strap that goes across the top of your shoe that helps to keep them in place and from coming off in deep snow. If Yaktrax come off while walking on packed snow or ice you probably don't have the best size for the footwear you're wearing.
Very heavy duty. Has a Velcro Performance Strap to keep them in place.
Comfort:
   
If the Yaktrax are properly sized the wider toe strap design of the Pro is less likely to pinch your toes when wearing soft shoes. If the Pro is too small the opposite is true. Very comfortable, wide straps.

How to Put Yaktrax on Shoes and Boots

Video showing you how to put the Yaktrax on your
   shoes and boots...
The easiest way to put on your Yaktrax Walk or Yaktrax Pro is sitting down.
There are Four Easy Steps...
Step 1:
Bring your foot over your knee. Make sure the Yaktrax label is facing out. Hook the front of your Yaktrax over the toe of your shoe.
First Step in putting Yaktrax on Shoes and Boots
Step 2:
Stretch to cover the sole of your shoe.
Second Step in Putting Yaktrax On Shoes and Boots
Step 3:
Securely fasten the heel tab to the back heel of your shoe.
Third Step in putting Yaktrax on Shoes and Boots
Step 4:

Check both sides of your shoe to make sure the perimeter of the Yaktrax is securely over the sides of your shoes.

If you have the Yaktrax Pro you would now close the optional Velcro strap to secure it across the top of your shoe.

Fourth Step in putting Yaktrax on Shoes and Boots
It's just that quick and simple. And because its quick and simple, never wear your Yaktrax indoors! Yaktrax give unsurpassed traction on ice and snow but are very slippery on smooth dry floors like those found in supermarkets, drug stores, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions About Yaktrax

Does the Yaktrax Pro give you better traction than the Yaktrax Walk?

No. The Pro is made from more durable materials and the coils are thicker. The only way the Pro's traction is superior is that the thicker, stronger straps and Velcro Performance strap keeps them better aligned on your footwear when you're "pushing off"... like when you push on a show shovel.

How long do Yaktrax last?

Yaktrax are a consumable just like any other article of clothing or ice cleat. How long they last depends upon a number of factors including...
  • Your weight
  • How often you use them.
  • How much bare payment you'll be walking on. It's rare that every foot of a sidewalk, parking lot or road is completely covered with ice and packed snow. It's unreasonable to remove them and then put them back on every time a dry patch is encountered. Bare spots obviously speed up the abrasion on the steel coils because the coils are abrasion resistant... not abrasion proof.
  • Will you be walking over rough surfaces that may tend to cut the rubber straps.
  • When it comes to running wearing Yaktrax, how you run can impact wear. Do you recall hearing that grinding sound you hear when some people job near you on dry ground? That happens when their feet hit and slide forward slightly grinding the bottom of their shoe. Obviously that style will impact the life of the coils.

The Pro will obviously last longer than the Walk because the steel coils are thicker and the real rubber compound straps are thicker and stronger. The same factors mentioned above also apply to the Yaktrax Run but they're a new product and I don't have any experience with them to predict their useful life.

Now having said all that on the average you can expect two seasons. When you consider the cost per use it's a very low cost insurance compared to the cost of an injury.

Will Yaktrax absolutely stop me from slipping on ice and packed snow?

No. No traction device can guaranty you won't slip and fall on ice. What Yaktrax can do is significantly decrease the probability that you'll fall making the risk acceptable.

Do Yaktrax work in regular unpacked snow or slush?

No. SPARE SPIKE™ Ice Cleats are a low cost alternative for Yaktrax that will work in regular snow and slush. Visit SlipResistant.net to find industrial grade ice cleats that will work in snow, slush and even mud.

Must I really remove my Yaktrax every time I go indoors?

You absolutely must remove Yaktrax before going indoors where there are a smooth dry floors like those found in the grocery store, drug store, train station or post office. That's because Yaktrax are extremely slippery on these types of floors. You also have to be cautious on outdoor granite or tile as well as sewer grates and manhole covers.

If you are not capable of removing them or you are constantly going in and out of doors... or live or work in an urban environment... consider ALTRAGRIPS-LITE™ Low Profile Ice Cleats.

Will Yaktrax work on steep hills?

They do work on hills. But if you have a very steep hill I would go with ice cleats with an aggressive tread and aggressive 2mm studs. The aggressive treads will cut through any surface loose snow or slush to make absolutely sure the studs come in contact with the ice underneath. The aggressive 2mm studs give further assurance that you're making good contact with the ice. Two of the best are GRIP-X™ Ice Cleats and ALTRAGRIPS-LITE™ High Profile Ice Cleats. If you're going to leave the ice grippers on your boots and you're not constantly going in and out of doors consider ICEGRIPS™ Ice Cleats for maximum protection.

Will Yaktrax work in all icy conditions?

I added this one from my own experience recently in Vermont. Yaktrax are most effective down into the mid-teens F. As temperatures fall to the low teens, single digits and below 0°F the ice becomes extremely dense and hard and both spikeless and grit based ice tractions devices become far less effective. This is even more so if you don't weigh much.

If you experience extremely low temperatures on a routine basis... or if you just want to have ice cleats that work in the most unusual circumstances as we are experiencing in the winter of 2013... I would go with an ice cleat with tungsten carbide spikes. Examples would include the SPARE SPIKE™ and ALTRAGRIPS-LITE Low ProfileLow Profile. The tungsten carbide spikes are your best bet for penetrating this unusually dense and hard ice. If you have to negotiate steep hills I would recommend some heavy duty ice cleats I sell on my SlipResistant.net online store including GRIP-X™, ALTRAGRIPS-LITE™ High Profile and ICEGRIPS™for the ultimate in traction .

Will Yaktrax work on Ski Boots?

No. There is a product called SKITRAX but I don't carry it.

Will Yaktrax work on Neos® Boots or Bunny Boots?

No. If you have large, bulky boots consider ICEGRIPS™ Ice Cleats.

Will Yaktrax work on roofs?

No. I don't sell a traction product on any of my stores that I would recommend for working on a roof. Furthermore the metal on metal contact climbing a ladder would be extremely hazardous. Visit Korkers.com to find footwear specifically designed for working on roofs.

What are WINTERTRAX™?

WINTERTRAX are manufactured by Implus. They're an ultra-light duty, one-size-fits-all, extremely inexpensive almost one-time use version of Yaktrax. One national marketer sells them as being actual Yaktrax and makes it appear that you're getting a great deal by getting two pair of Yaktrax for the price of one pair from another source. Again, they're not Yaktrax. I don't sell WINTERTRAX because they don't hold up and they don't stay on your shoes. They're great in a pinch.

What is the Yaktrax Extreme?

If you order a Yaktrax Extreme online you will receive a Pro... same product... same packaging. There is a totally different spiked product called the Yaktrax XTR EXTREME designed for off road use.

Why are they called Yaktrax?

Tibetan Yak imageThey're named after the surefooted Tibetan Yak. But the concept really has nothing to do with the Yak. The idea originated by observing how Sherpas would tie strips of leather around their shoes to get traction on ice.

  • Choosing the wrong ice traction device can actually increase the chance of slips and falls.
