Yaktrax makes slip-on traction devices for your walking and running shoes.
These are the best choices for winter days when you might face ice or snow and are simple to pack with you if you need them.
They slip on over your regular shoes or boots to offer extra traction on wintry surfaces.
The traction surface is made of steel coils around natural rubber.
The Yaktrax pro better on the real Yaktrax walker design by having a Velcro strap across the top to stop losing a slip-on white walking.
Safer Winter Walking with Yaktrax
The Yaktrax pro better on the real Yaktrax walker in a few days. The design is more heavy-duty while still being portable and lightweight.
The addition of a Velcro strap across the top of your sneaker is welcome. A real strapless Yaktrax walker could slip off when you were walking in deep snow.
The strap will support keep them on the boots or shoes.
The steep coil traction design has its advantages. Without spikes, you are less likely to damage floors and walkways when you step in from the snow.
This is a huge worry with ice cleats when you step into your home as you can damage carpets, rugs, and flooring.
Anyway, the feel of running or walking while wearing Yaktrax is more natural with spiked cleats.
Extra Pairs for Your Weather Emergency Kits
Think of keeping a pair of Yaktrax or similar shoe-traction gadgets in your home, car, and office.
In areas where you get ice or snow a few days of the year, you will be prepared. It comes unexpectedly.
