Yaktrax Ice Grips: How to Walk Safely in Winter

Tuesday, 22 December 2020  |  Paul

When ice and snow coat the ground in winter, even a quick trip to the shop can end in disaster. Luckily now with the Yaktrax selection of ice grips for shoes, you can hugely improve your safety when walking in winter without having to rely on any bulky shoe accessories. With grips suitable for workers, hikers and runners, there's a Yaktrax ice grip perfect for everyone! Keep reading to find yours.

Our Best All-Round Yaktrax Ice Grips

Yaktrax Pro Black Ice Grips for Shoes

Yaktrax Pro Black Ice Grips for ShoesWhy we love them:

  • Spike-free design is easier and safer to carry
  • Suitable for both ice and snow
  • Versatile design is ideal for walking, hiking or light work
  • Skid lock coils enhance grip from all angles
  • Safety strap provides a more secure fit

Our top pick for best all-round ice grip, the Yaktrax Pro Black Ice Grips for Shoes use a skid-lock coil system to maximise traction from all angles. As they are both durable and lightweight, they can be used for walking, hiking or light work in snow or ice. With a spike-free design, they can be easily carried and handled when walking over transitional surfaces like concrete, making them suitable for practically anyone!

The Best Ice Grips for Running in Snow

Why we love them:

  • Combines steel coils with toe spikes
  • Suitable for running or jogging in snow
  • Toe spikes prevent slips when pushing off
  • Anatomical shape allows you to maintain a natural gait
  • Safety straps keep the grips securely in place as you run

Featuring toe spikes, an anatomical design, and extra-secure safety straps, the Yaktrax Run Grey Ice Grips for Shoes are the best Yaktrax ice grips for exercising. They accommodate the natural shape of your left and right foot so as not to disrupt you natural stride, and have carbide steel spikes at the forefoot to reduce the risk of slips when you push off of the ground.

The Best Ice Grips for Elderly Individuals

Yaktrax Walk Black Ice Grips for Shoes

Yaktrax Walk Black Ice Grips for ShoesWhy we love them:

  • Spike-free design can be safely held and carried
  • Perfect for walking in light snow
  • Very lightweight and minimalistic design
  • Rubber webbing and steel coils increase traction
  • Enhances grip from all angles

 A fantastic choice for elderly individuals or those at greater risk of injury from falls and slips, the Yaktrax Walk Black Ice Grips for Shoes can vastly increase the grip provided by your footwear. Made from criss-crossing rubber webs and steel coils, they can be used to walk on light snow for both long or short periods. However, they are not as durable as some of Yaktrax's other models, nor are they as suitable for travelling over very high risk surfaces like boilerplate ice, or very packed areas of snow.

The Best Ice Grips for Long Hikes

The Yaktrax Chains Ice Grips for Shoes offer the perfect balance between durability and ease of use. Their chains are made up of resilient zinc-coated steel links that have been welded together, and offer high levels of traction without relying on spikes or sharp edges. As they can be easily taken off and carried, they are great for use on long winter walks where you may encounter transitional surfaces like concrete.

The Best Ice Grips for Working in Snow

Yaktrax Diamond Grip Ice Grips for Shoes

Yaktrax Diamond Grip Ice Grips for Shoes

Why we love them:

  • Heavy-duty ice grips for tough winter work
  • Can be used on boilerplate ice or snow

  • Long-lasting, durable construction
  • Remains lightweight and easy to walk with

Created for the toughest winter conditions, the Yaktrax Diamond Grip Ice Grips for Shoes are one of Yaktrax's most hardwearing designs. Their diamond-shaped beads have sharp edges that cut into snow for outstanding grip from all sides. Made of case-hardened steel alloy and strung on steel aircraft grade cable, they also durable enough for short-term use on transitional surfaces such as rock, gravel, dirt, and bare concrete.
