YAKTRAX makes slip on traction products for your walking and running boots.
These are the best choice for the winter season when you might face ice or snow and are simple to pack with you in case you’ll need them.
Features YAKTRAX Walk Traction Cleats
They slip on over your regular boots or shoes to give additional traction on wintry surfaces. The traction surface is made of steel coils around rubber, rather than spiked cleats. The YAKTRAX Walk Traction Cleats improved on the original walker design by having a Velcro strap across the top to assist prevent losing a slip-on while walking.
The YAKTRAX Walk Traction Cleats improves on the original walker in a few ways. The design is more heavy-duty, while still being portable and lightweight. The addition of a Velcro strap across t6he top of the boot is welcome. The actual strapless YAKTRAX Walker could slip off when you were walking on deep snow. This strap will help them with the boots or shoes.
The steel coil traction design has its advantages. Without spikes, you’re less likely to damage walkways and floors when you step in from the snow. This is a huge concern with some cleats when you step into your home as you can damage carpets, flooring, and rugs.
An added advantage is that if you carry YAKTRAX Walk Traction Cleats in your pack, you do not need to worry about scratching yourself or damaging the fabric as you do with other spikes.
