From the Manufacturer


Yaktrax was originally conceptualized when an outdoor adventurer who was exploring the Himalayas encountered a seasoned Sherpa striding confidently across the slick, icy surface. What was seen on the Sherpa's feet sparked a revolutionary invention - the Yaktrax patented coil traction device.

Named after the sure-footed Tibetan Yak, Yaktrax is proud to offer a wide array of ice traction devices for your shoes in addition to winter accessories. Yaktrax will always provide solid, predictable traction you are used to on dry surfaces.

Several years ago my husband was going down our driveway to grab the newspaper when he hit a patch of black ice. He cracked his skull, & laid, unconscious for about 20 minutes, almost going into hypothermia. It was 5AM & there was no one around to help.
He's fine, thank you, :) but since that day we have NEVER been without at least 2 pair of YakTrax each.
As soon as the temps begin to hit freezing, we each keep a pair of shoes, with YakTrax attached, by the back door, & neither of us goes out without them. There's also a spare pair in our emergency kit in the car.
YakTrax fit over your shoes or boots & provide superior traction even on ice. They're a little hard to get on (we're old & arthritic, so EVERYTHING is hard!), but once in place, they stay put. We've had other brands over the years, but they ended up coming off & getting buried in some snow banks - somewhere. While you can switch the YakTrax to different pairs of boots/shoes/sneakers, I think it's better to have a few pair available just to make sure you don't leave home without them.
As far as durability goes, hubby's oldest pair is about 5 winters old & still going strong. He wears a size 11 extra wide shoe & the large fits just fine. Just be very careful if you hafta wear them indoors - in a store or the like. Under those conditions, they're slippery as heck.
If you invest in one thing next winter, invest in these, 'specially if you're older & your balance ain't as good as it once was. Believe me, these are well worth the investment - even for the young'uns. ;)

As for the functionally of this product, I couldn't say enough good things. I ran between 45-65 miles per week all outdoors in heavy snow and icy conditions. Ice, snow and the combined, these treads give excellent control while running on street or trails. Literally, no slip. That said, the rubber that holds the coils didn't not hold up for me... busting after about 5 weeks of use. I'm 6' 0" and weigh 165lbs. If you're going to use in moderation, I'd say, go nuts and buy the heck out these dudes....

Where I live, we have 10 months of winter and 2 months of solid traction, or so it seems. I am an avid dog walker and runner. I find the most dangerous time to walk is when there is fresh snow on the ground as it covers all the icy patches and one wrong step turns that snow into a slippery surface on top of another slippery surface. Falling is never fun.

I have used Yaktrax for quite a few years now and I like them, but have always found that constantly switching them between footwear (i.e. runners to hiking boots) cause them to lose their elasticity which in turn means they will inevitably break or snap.

Not so with the Yaktrax Pro. The tension strap allows for easy removal and installation.

Thank you Yaktrax, for keeping me steady in winter!

I used these twice when shoveling snow off my driveway, for a total of less than one hour. When I went to put them on my boots a third time, the rubber band inside one of the springs on the bottom broke, less than one month after I received the product from Amazon. I do not recommend this product.

UPDATE on 1/15/2014:

This morning, I received the following response from Implus Corporation (Yaktrax is an Implus Corporation brand) to an email that I sent them asking whether or not Yaktrax are designed for use while shoveling driveways:

"Yaktrax are primarily designed to increase stability and decrease falls while walking and running on compact snow and ice. They are meant to be used on these surfaces, not roads that are cleared and therefore safer without the use of a traction device. We do not recommend them for use shoveling or otherwise clearing pavement, as this will result in rapid wear.

Madison Williams

Yaktrax Pro were the second pair of ice traction products I ordered, the first ones from a different manufacturer were not good. The Yaktrax size small fit over my women's size 8.5 boot perfectly and did not slide off at all. I don't think they would even if you didn't have the added strap across the top, and I even think they will fit perfectly over my running shoes, but we still have too much snow to try them out. I purposely walked over icy spots to test them out and they grip wonderfully, not even a slight slip. I'm a daily speedwalker and didn't want icy days to keep me in on the treadmill. I highly recommend this product overall for fit and effectiveness. Thanks, Yaktrax

I purchased this as a gift for my Mom who will now need to snowblow her driveway with a walk behind model vs. the type my Dad used (John Deere riding tractor with a giant auger which intimidates her). She's in her 70's and while very able bodied I wanted to ensure she had good traction since she lives alone now. There's no guarantee that someone won't fall while wearing these, but I'd say the likelihood is about 90% reduced with use of this product and a general awareness of ground conditions.

These come up even higher in the heel than previous designs I've used and as such will stay on better. I've cautioned my Mom to check and make sure they're on her boots properly before and after each use. I wear a pair myself because I'm an amputee and don't want to risk any further injury given my already existing disadvantage. My only complaint about this product in general is that the coils seem to rust after about a year of use, likely due to salt. That being said, spending the amount I do on new Yaktrax each year more than compensates for the potential of injury, medical costs and lost time from work. The emergency room and radiology co-pay alone is way more than the price of a new pair - again, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure...
