When you walk or run with Yaktrax, every step you take places hundreds of biting edges in direct contact with the ice beneath your feet. Yaktrax create a solid, secure grip by way of our patented SkidLock coil system, made of specially treated steel. As you step, each tiny SkidLock coil presses downward, becoming embedded into the ice below. As you transfer weight onto your foot, hundreds of SkidLock surfaces squeeze into the ice, providing you with stability in all directions: forward, backward, and side to side. When you lift your foot, the Yaktrax stay securely on your shoe, offering unhindered ease of movement.

No. You will move about naturally. There is nothing new to learn - just walk as you normally would and experience stability on ice and snow like you have never felt before.

To ensure maximum life and effectiveness of these Yaktrax designs, periodically pinch the coils in the areas indicated by the circles to maintain original shape and angle.

The easiest way for most people to install Yaktrax on their shoes is to sit down, pull your foot up near your other knee and slip them over your shoe. Start from the front of your shoe and then pull them over the bottom of your shoes, securing them in the back heel area. You may also fit them over your shoe prior to putting on your shoes. Whatever way you find easiest is the best way for you.

No. The only difference is the sizing. See our size charts under each product.

The Yaktrax WALK is the original Yaktrax design. It was created for people who walk across icy parking lots, sidewalks, or are simply walking their dog. It is a great way to stay safe if you are a pedestrian or elderly. It is simple to put on and take off and you hardly know you have it on your shoes.

The Yaktrax PRO is designed for someone who spends more time outdoors during the winter. For example: a mail carrier, runner, or someone who faces winter conditions on a frequent basis. Police officers, athletes, trainers, and many other professionals use the Pro.

The Yaktrax RUN features a combination of steel coils that grip into the ice as well as tough spikes to ensure trustworthy traction. This unique traction device is ideal for running on packed snow and ice. Because it is made of abrasion resistant steel and durable natural rubber, the Yaktrax Run is the best choice for serious runners.

If you prefer to take your outdoor adventure off-road during the winter months, the Yaktrax XTR is for you. The XTR will grip into snow and ice with its durable spikes and chains. Featuring flexible toe and heel plates, your winter excursion won't stop because of packed snow.

Yaktrax air-activated warmers all contain a mixture of natural ingredients that when exposed to air react together to produce heat. This is accomplished through an extremely fast oxidation (or rusting) process. Ingredients include: iron powder, water, salt, activated charcoal and vermiculite. Yaktrax has perfected the process so that our warmers, depending on the individual product, produce heat anywhere from 105°F to 165°F for duration of 1 to 18+ hours.
The Yaktrax line of warmers is completely environmentally safe. Just use and dispose of in your everyday garbage.
Although all Yaktrax Warmers are safe to handle and use, some people with sensitive skin (especially young children, diabetics and the elderly) may have reduced sensation to heat. Please read all instructions for use with each product and apply them properly.
