Featured Ice Cleats

Why I Recommend These Ice Cleats...

  • There are no better ice cleats on the market. In my opinion they're the best. They may cost a little more than some competitors but they work a lot better and last several times longer. You get what you pay for.
  • They work better because they're the result of over 30 years of experience in designing ice cleats and other slip resistant footwear. They have important, patented features you won't find anywhere else. If you follow the links in the expansion boxes below you'll find videos where I point them out in detail.
  • Since nothing can absolutely guarantee you won't slip and injure yourself on ice and snow, doesn't it make sense to get the best protection possible? Think about the last time you walked on glare ice. What do you want to have on your shoes... the bargain ice cleats or the ones that reliably work the best? It's just common sense.
  • All of the featured ice cleats below will help stop you from slipping and getting hurt on everything winter will throw at you including ice, packed snow and deep snow, slush and even mud.

Why Use Shoe Traction Devices?

Shoe attachments are less expensive than slip resistant shoes.

Why buy separate, expensive slip resistant shoes when you can simply stretch slip resistant footwear over almost any pair of your existing shoes... get far better traction than any rubber soled shoe... adapt your footwear to changing slippery conditions... and save money?

You'll find a state-of-the-art traction solution with important, patented features not found in competing products.

I feature innovative Winter Walking (formerly Jordan David) slip resistant footwear because... with over 30 years experience... they're the recognized industry leader in slips and falls prevention. No matter what slippery surface, or combination of slippery surfaces, you'll find an effective, low cost, common sense solution for minimizing slips and falls at SlipResistant.net.

You'll find one shoe traction device that provides traction on several slippery conditions

View the Selection Guides to find traction devices that best suit your particular situation. You'll find slip resistant footwear specifically designed and optimized to reduce falls on the slippery surfaces most important to you and your crew while still being effective in other slippery conditions.

Employees are more likely to actually use Winter Walking traction devices.

  • They have exclusive, patented features that make them extremely easy to put on and take off.
  • There are models that can be worn both indoors and outdoors.
  • You can drive with certain models.

You have flexibility to adapt to changing or temporary slippery conditions.

Simply change the shoe attachment instead of having to buy different slip resistant shoes.

You can choose the most comfortable work shoes instead of being limited to slip resistant work shoes.

Winter Walking will make almost any shoe or boot slip resistant.

Most products are made in the USA

You get the benefit of quality and durability of products manufactured in the United States.
Frequently Asked Questions

What traction device do you recommend for working on roofs?

I don't recommend any of the traction devices on this website for roofers. The devices with the aggressive cleats you need for traction... especially on a sloping roof... will damage the roof. I recommend that you visit korkers.com where you'll find traction devices specifically designed for roofers.
