Grip-X
42.97 /pr.
Dragons live forever. But not so ice cleats studs. Tungsten carbide studs are the most durable. But they eventually wear out. Normally it takes years. But if you're frequently walking on bare spots not covered by ice or snow, especially concrete, they're obviously going to wear out a lot faster. Replaceable spikes are the answer. But many people don't like replaceable spikes because they say it's like walking with marbles in your boots because of the bumps created by the replaceable spike mounts. Grip-X ice cleats have a patented spike mounting mechanism that's flat, comfortable and extremely reliable and secure so you don't lose them. The uppers are extremely durable so they'll last through several sets of replacement spikes.

Convenient is the best word to describe Low-Pro ice cleats. Here's why...

Heel Grips

Heel Grips heel ice cleats are for situations whereby the company's safety regulations disapprove any full size ice cleat that extends to the forefoot therefor eliminating any conceivable problem that might somehow cause an accident. They're most used by freight carriers and delivery services. They're also good for snowmobiling, ATVs or even biking where you don't want anything to cause your boot to slip off the footrest or pedal. Spikes are aggressive because they're doing double duty. But you also have to take them off before going indoors. Fortunately the strap design makes that quick and easy. Here's why you won't find better heel cleats...

Spare Spike
24.97 /pr.
Spare Spike ice cleats are lower cost, consumer grade ice cleats. They're designed for occasional use for shorter periods of time. They'll get your employees safely across the parking lot or an individual from the front door to the mailbox and back. They're not going to last as long as the heavy duty ice cleats I sell but they'll last several times longer than competing products like Yaktrax plus they have replaceable spikes. My only criticism is that they don't have a heel spike which I don't believe any competing products have in this price range. For that reason as well as getting the best possible protection from a fall I still recommend the High-Pro or Low-Pro if you can afford them. Nevertheless you get a lot of patented features found in the their professional heavy duty ice cleats for a very low cost. This is a good product for visiting nurses as well.

Grips-Lite
45.97 /pr.
This is a specialty ice cleat used in industries like oil and gas operations, mining, electric and gas utilities where non-conductivity and non-sparking cleats are an absolute necessity. It's not for normal, everyday consumer use because gritted ice cleats don't provide the traction of studded ice cleats especially on extremely cold dense ice. Beware of competing products that claim to be spark-resistant. Non-sparking means it won't ever cause a spark. Spark-resistant means it probably won't cause a spark. That's a big difference if you're the one working around natural gas or other flammable materials. Gritted cleats reduce the risk of injuries from slipping on the ice by 50% while guaranteeing you won't "blow up" because of your ice cleats.

  • There are several types of ice cleats (ice grippers). Choosing the best ice cleats is not always obvious because no one type of ice cleat is best for everyone.
  • Many times the best approach to preventing slips and falls is a combination of different types of ice cleats best suited for particular employees.
It's important to remember that your goal is to prevent injuries caused by slips and falls. Choosing the wrong type of ice cleats for your particular situation can actually increase your risk of falls and injuries even if the ice cleats you've chosen give excellent traction on snow and ice.

I encourage you to please call me toll free at 1-888-205-4477 for free expert advice. You'll save time and be sure to get the best possible ice cleats to keep you safe.

Where you live

  • Is your problem primarily ice or a combination of both ice and snow?
  • How often do you expect to wear your ice cleats?

    Special Note: I often have people say they don't get a lot of ice and snow where they live. So why invest in ice cleats... especially good ones that cost more?

    I ask them if they own a fire extinguisher or fire insurance for their home and most people obviously do. Then I ask them if they have frequent fires, or ever had a fire, and for the overwhelming majority of people the answer is, or hopefully, no. But you get these things because the risk of not having them is too great. But even in the worst case scenario a house can be replaced. You can't replace your health. People have long-term disabilities and financial problems resulting from slippery wintry conditions. The worst case scenario from a slip on the ice is that you die either directly from the fall or from complications.

    As far as getting good ice cleats vs entry level ice cleats let's go back to the fire extinguisher comparison. When there's a fire and you grab your fire extinguisher you don't want to wonder if your fire extinguisher works on that particular type of fire or that the handle breaks off when you need it most. You just want it to work and the fire out.

    It's the same thing with ice cleats. Many ice cleats will only work on ice and packed snow. They come right out and tell you but they don't tell you what it doesn't work on. What about deeper snow and especially black ice? What about conditions where there's a thin layer of snow on top of the ice that acts like a lubricant or snow clumping up because there are no treads or the treads are not self-cleaning making them ineffective? What about walking on ice in extremely cold weather when ice is far more dense and traction devices with coils stop working? Do you really want to wonder if the next step you take is on a slippery surface your bargain ice cleats can't handle?

    Why then do some entry level ice cleats get good reviews? That's because almost any ice cleat is better than no ice cleats. Performance is relative. So most "sorta" work... until they don't. And that's the fall that can screw up your whole life.

    The good ice cleats are only about $20 more expensive than the marginal offerings and they usually last two, three or even more times as long. A few people still balk but they'll think nothing of spending four or even five dollars for a cup of coffee... often every day. At that point I wish them well and let the process of natural selection take its course.

How you work or plan to use them

  • Will you be wearing ice cleats for extended periods of time?
  • Are you constantly going in and out of doors?
  • Do you have to drive in ice and snow and ... if so ... do you make frequent stops?

Straps

Straps are critically important to the performance and safety of the ice cleat because...
  • they obviously must keep from coming off;
  • they have to keep the ice cleat properly aligned so that studs remain effective;
  • durability is more than just a service life matter. If straps break you're now stranded on that icy hill or parking lot with one cleat.
  • they must remain flexible at low temperatures so the ice cleat is to put on and take off; and
  • they must maintain their elasticity.

The work or use environment

  • Do you plan to use ice cleats in an area where spark suppression and/or non-conductivity is an issue?
  • Do you plan to use your ice cleats for hiking or hunting?
  • What other slippery conditions exist in addition to ice and snow?
  • Do you want an overshoe with built-in cleats to keep your footwear dry?
  • Will people have to climb ladders while wearing the traction device?
  • Will there be metal steps like those on a bus?

Cost considerations

As I explain in the "Where you live" section, cost should not be the driving factor in selecting ice cleats. You owe it to yourself and your family to get the best ice traction device to keep you safe.

Traditional Ice Cleats

Winter Walking sells traditional ice cleats in the sense that the spikes are sharp. That's where the comparison with competing ice cleats stops because Winter Walking has incorporated several exclusive patented features. With over 30 years of experience they designed each ice cleat to give you optimum traction and usability. For businesses reading this the usability issues addressed are just as important as the traction the ice cleats provide because no accidents will be avoided if employees won't use them. The best way to decide which ice cleat best meets your needs is to click on the Ice Cleats Selection Guide tab above. This will show you all the types of slippery conditions each ice cleat will accommodate. It will also show which ice cleats are safe to wear while driving, which ones will keep your feet dry, and much more.

I want to call special attention to the Low-Pro , AltraGrips-Lite Low Profile Ice Cleats and AltraGrips Low Profile Ice Cleats Overshoes. These are the only ice cleats I know of that most often do not have to be removed when going in and out of doors and can be safely worn while driving. This is the perfect answer for people living or working in urban areas and for delivery truck drivers.

Spikeless Ice Cleats

Some of the most popular ice cleats use wound stainless steel coils.
  • Wound coils provide hundreds of gripping edges more than studded ice cleats. They have to because the gripping edges are not aggressive. It takes tens if not hundreds of gripping edges to equal a single aggressive stud.
  • They're not effective for deep snow, slush or black ice and become less effective as temperatures drop and ice becomes more dense.
  • Stainless steel coils tend to wear down rapidly especially if the user frequently walks on bare spots not covered by ice and snow. A typical user gets one season of use.
  • While they won't damage most types of floors, this type of ice cleat absolutely must be removed before going indoors or on to most forms of transportation. That's because walking on a smooth dry floor while wearing this type of ice cleat is extremely slippery and dangerous.
  • Users must careful using them in a city because they're slippery when you step on a sewer grate or manhole cover that is usually not covered with ice and snow.
  • The initial cost is low although they require more frequent replacement.
  • Not suited for off-road use.
  • Not suited for environments where sparking is an issue or climbing is required.

Why don't you sell different brands of ice cleats?

  • No ice cleats can guaranty you won't slip and injure yourself on the ice. While almost any ice cleat will reduce the risk of slipping, there is a world of difference in their effectiveness or suitability for your particular circumstances.
  • Large Companies Using Winter Walking Slip Resistant FootwearI don't sell every brand of ice cleats. There are some good brands and there are some terrible brands. I offer what I believe are the best ice cleats based upon my over 12 years of experience in this field. To offer anything less is a compromise of professional ethics because my goal is prevent you from falling and sustaining a life altering injury. Most of the ice cleats are produced by Winter Walking (formerly Jordan David) who have been the industry leader in producing professional quality ice cleats for over 40 years. You may not have heard of their products because they have concentrated of supplying industry.

Are professional, heavy duty ice cleats for consumers?

Absolutely yes! Winter Walking professional heavy duty ice cleats are durable and deliver excellent, reliable traction in all winter slippery conditions. In my opinion they're just better. And when it comes to ice cleats and avoiding a serious life-altering injury you want everything possible to reduce that risk. If you don't believe me you can ask the tens of customers I get every year who seek the best possible ice cleats after they have sustained a serious injury.

I've been using cheap ice cleats for years and I haven't fallen. Why do I need professional ice cleats?

It's more accurate to say you haven't fallen and injured yourself yet. But it only takes a faction of a second to find out your bargain ice cleats really don't work on black ice, extremely cold ice or rough ice. And then they're not a bargain after all. You should never base the purchase of ice cleats based upon price. The consequences of falling are just too serious.
