The Yaktrax Walker is designed for people who are looking for an easy-to-use, lightweight traction device for their shoes. The Walker is the original version of Yaktrax and is ideal for pedestrians, the elderly, business people or anyone who want greater stability on ice and snow. Use the Yaktrax Walker while walking to and from work, school or just to the mailbox. The Walker is made out of an injection molded thermal plastic elastomer designed for easy on and off. The coils are protected against rusting and hand-wound to give you 360 degrees of traction on ice and snow. When you walk in the Yaktrax Walker, every step you take places hundreds of biting edges in direct contact with the ice beneath your feet. Yaktrax can be worn in temperatures as low as -41 degrees Fahrenheit. The patented design of the Walker makes it a unique solution to walking on packed snow and ice. The outer band conforms to the length and width of your boot or shoe. The high strength horizontal coils provide forward and backward stability. The vertical coil pattern provide side-to-side stability.
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.

My neighbor across the street was shocked when I rang his doorbell in a huge ice storm, to bring his mail to him. He said, "How did you do that? There is no way anyone could make it up that steep driveway." I showed him the Yaktrax and he said, "If that's what did it, I'm buying some" and he did. Now he brings my mail when we have ice and snow.
I keep a pair of them in my car just in case I need them.
Usually we have more ice than snow, and these work really well with the kinds of ice storms we have. Then we had a snow storm, and they worked equally well. Finally, we had a different kind of snow, which packed into the Yaktrax. They still worked, but the snow was so fine, I guess, and there was so much of it, that it was still treacherous walking out there.
All-in-all, I think everyone should have these if you have snow and ice in winter.
EDITED years after getting my first pair. I've given away half a dozen now. I don't know how I made it without them. Our weather has been crazy with icy winters. Before getting these I remember some really dangerous situations. These are literally life-savers in my opinion.
The best periods of my life have been when I have been walking a lot... usually do several miles a day.
I was really worried I would be forced to stay in or go back to a gym to get any movement this winter.
But I bought these precious dayglo Yaktrax gizmos from Amazon.
They came in a couple of days and are worth their weight in gold to me.
they rank right up there with my absolute favorite THINGS.. (ipod, heated mattress pad)... things I cannot do without. I walked several miles today on really lumpy, cruddy, iced up, snow covered trail and felt no fear of falling.... which is incredible!!!
I love them. I'm 63, by the way... not an age where you necessarily bounce right back up after you hit the pavement. Don't get them too big. my husband (I got him a pair) got them a little big and they don't stay on as well as mine do.
I WROTE THIS REVIEW EARLY IN THE WINTER. FOR THE MOST PART IT IS STILL TRUE, HOWEVER THE GREEN PLASTIC HAS RIPPED SEVERAL TIMES. MY HUSBAND HAS REPAIRED THEM REPEATEDLY AND SINCE THEY DID WORK I GOT A SECOND PAIR.
SINCE IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME TO CONTINUE WALKING I AM NOW TRYING THE PRO MODEL, WHICH I BELIEVE SHOULD OUTLAST THE FLIMSIER ONE.
AS MANY OTHER REVIEWERS HAVE MENTIONED THEY ARE EASILY SUBJECT TO BREAKAGE IF YOU USE THEM A LOT.
Durability: 1 star
I bought these just before the most recent spate of snowstorms to hit the east coast, and I was thrilled with them. They were easy to use, and worked even better than I could imagine--I was walking around on the snow and ice like a pro. So, I give them 5 stars for functionality. However, I only got about 6 or 7 uses out of them before one of them broke (one of the rubber pieces underneath the sole snapped). Only 1 star for durability. Since the paths I travel are country roads and paths, I'm guessing I met up with an errant piece of gravel--something any reasonable quality product should be able to handle, in my opinion. Luckily, they were still under 90-day warranty, and Yaktrax will be sending me a replacement. Given my experience so far, I don't have high hopes for the longevity of my replacement.
In sum, these are fine if the icy paths you travel will be well-behaved. Stay away from them if you're on anything but paved areas or unblemished packed snow. Next time these break, I'll go for something all-metal on the bottom.
