Problems With Traditional Ice Cleats for Postal Workers

Mail carriers encounter every winter slippery condition including ice, packed snow, deep snow, slush, and black ice. Slippery conditions not only pose an injury hazard but also slow you down making it more difficult to stay on schedule.

Winter Walking Ice Cleats work in any combination of wintry conditions and allow you to move quickly and safely.

Urban mail delivery presents unique problems when selecting ice cleats. Here's why.
  • Delivering mail involves constantly going in and out of doors. Traditional ice cleats damage floors or are slippery on hard surfaces like tile, granite, or marble. Therefore, you have to take them off and put them back on every time you go in and out of a building.
  • Traditional ice cleats are slippery with metal to metal contact that occurs when stepping on sewer grates, utility hole covers, and stairs covers.

    The ice cleats I recommend for Urban Delivery have Transitional Traction whereby both the tread and the stud come in contact with the surface. They won't damage most interior floors and are far less likely to slide on hard surfaces making them ideal for use in the city.

No ice cleats can absolutely guarantee you won't fall on ice. I can recommend ice cleats I sincerely believe are the best to minimize your risk of falling given your unique circumstances. My goal is to manage your risk of falling to keep you as safe as possible.

Recommended Ice Cleats Common Features Important to Mail Carriers

All recommended ice cleats

  • Aggressive, well-positioned Tungsten Carbide Studs provide excellent traction on ice including black ice and remain effective in frigid temperatures. Well-distributed spikes assure that at least one stud contacts the ice on uneven surfaces.
  • Patented Heel Spikes and spikes positioned close to the front of the ice cleat allow you to walk naturally. That's because your heel is the first thing to strike the ground when you take a natural step and the front of your footwear is the last as you push off.
  • Dual Pull Tabs - You can use two hands to stretch the ice cleat over your boots and shoes. Dual Pull Tabs are especially useful for people with weakness in their hands or who have arthritis.
  • Dual Density Construction - The straps are thinner in non-wear areas so they're easier to stretch over shoes and boots.
  • Aggressive Self-Cleaning Treads - provide traction in loose snow. The Self-Cleaning feature prevents snow and debris from building up on the bottom of your shoe and boot that would prevent the studs from contacting the ice.
  • Dual Material Design - The treads are molded using a harder material for greater wear and stud retention.
  • Industry Leading Strap Design - Keeps your ice cleats securely on you footwear.

Practical and Convenient Ice Cleats Mail Carriers Can Wear Indoors and While Driving


Transitional Traction Ice Cleats for Postal Workers
The best ice cleats for most Postal Workers have Transitional Traction. Here's why.
  • Both the stud and treads contact the floor because the 1mm tungsten carbide studs minimally protrude beyond the tread. Therefore,
  • They won't damage most floors, and they're not slippery on smooth, hard surfaces. Examples of floors where you can wear them are like those found in the grocery store, drug store, and post office. However, you SHOULD NOT wear them on finished hardwood floors because they'll scratch them.
  • Transitional Traction ice cleats are safe to wear while driving because the shorted studs won't penetrate the pedals. The straps are tight against your footwear and less likely to get hung up transitioning between pedals. However, you are the ultimate judge to determine if you feel comfortable driving wearing them.

The problem with Transitional Traction ice cleats is that they are a compromise solution. The ice cleats I recommend in the next section have 2mm studs that provide better traction on ice that has a thin layer of snow on the top and should last twice as long. However, the more aggressive studs require taking them off and putting them back on going indoors or in and out of your car or mass transit.


Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats

Winter Walking LOW-PRO is my top recommendation for people with regular shoes and boots constantly going in and out of doors, vehicles, or have difficulty putting ice cleats on and taking them off. LOW-PRO is safe to wear while driving and on most indoor floors without damaging them. So you can often leave LOW-PRO Ice Cleats on your shoes and boots all day.

Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Features

ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Ice Cleats Closeup
  • Twenty Eight well distributed tungsten carbide studs.
  • TRANSITIONAL TRACTION - ICE BEAST LOW-PRO are safe to wear on most indoor floors because the 1mm studs minimally protrude beyond the tread. Therefore, both the studs and the tread make contact with the surface.
  • ICE BEAST LOW-PRO are safe to wear while you're driving.
  • Aggressive studs quickly penetrate the coldest, densest ice where less aggressive studs and spikeless ice cleats with wound steel coils fail.
  • Tungsten carbide studs are far more durable than the carbon steel studs found on most competing products.
  • The stud distribution guarantees that at least one aggressive stud will likely be in contact with the ground no matter how uneven the surface.
  • The patented heel spikes are crucial because your heel is the first thing to strike the ground when you take a normal step. Heel spikes allow you to walk naturally. Many ice and snow traction devices force you to walk more flat-footed. Because walking flat-footed is not normal, you tend to forget. And one misplaced step can cause you to slip and fall.
  • Spikes are not replaceable. But the mounting mechanism required with replaceable spikes makes them thicker and can cause discomfort for some people... like standing on marbles... especially over long periods of time. Permanently molded-in spikes are more secure therefor eliminating one more potential point of failure.
  • Spikes at Front and Heel Spikes allow you to walk naturally. There are no special skills to learn.
  • Aggressive, Self-Cleaning Treads provide traction in deep snow and slush while assuring studs stay in contact with icy surfaces.
  • Versatile because Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Ice Cleats
    • fit over all types of shoes and boots;
    • provide traction in all slippery winter conditions; and
    • are safe to wear while driving.
  • Patented Open Design 
    • stays securely on footwear, and
    • is lightweight & compact.
  • Strong Straps and several exclusive patented features keep ICE BEAST securely on footwear and properly aligned.
  • Patented Dual Pull Tabs and a Proprietary Strap Material make ICE BEAST Ice Cleats easy to put on and take off even at extremely low temperatures.
  • Bright Orange Color facilitates compliance monitoring.

Best Ice Cleats for The Most Challenging Deliveries

Winter Walking HIGH-PRO Ice Cleats are the best for reducing the risk of slipping on ice and snow. These HIGH-PRO are the ice cleats you need for traction on steep sidewalks, driveways, and roads. However, you have to remove HIGH-PROs before going indoors because the aggressive 2mm tungsten carbide studs will damage floors. You must evaluate whether you feel they're too aggressive to wear while driving.

Winter Walking HIGH-PRO Ice Cleats

Choose HIGH-PRO Ice Cleats if you
  • want to be able to quickly put on and remove your ice cleats;
  • need excellent traction in all slick winter conditions including ice, snow, packed snow, and black ice; and
  • do not have bulky, insulated pack boots.

Crucial Ice Cleats Sizing Advice

  1. You can go by the shoe sizes. However, the actual size of the shoe or boot can vary significantly for the same foot size. So option two below is a better way to select the correct size.
    (OR)
  2. Measure the length of your shoe or boot. Measure the bottom from the tip of the sole to the base of the heel. Measure on "the flat", don't wrap around. We want the length. Then find the size on the sizing chart with the Footwear Length Range that spans the length of your footwear. Measure carefully. Measure twice. Our goal is to get you the right size on the first try to make you as safe as possible as soon as possible.
Ice cleats sizes are unisex and fit men's and women's shoes and boots according to the sizing charts.
Always try your ice cleats on as soon as you receive them for two reasons.
  1. You want to be ready for the bad weather. Don't wait until the ice is on the ground to find out you need a size exchange.
  2. I can't do free size exchanges for ice cleats that have been used because I can't resell them.
FAQs

What should I do if the length of my shoe or boot is extremely close to the breakpoint of a size range? Should I choose the next larger size? For example, assume the length of your boot or shoe is just under 12½". You look at the specific size chart for ice cleats you're buying. Assume for this example the Medium has size range of 11½" to < 12½" and a Large is 12½" to < 13". For regular shoes and work shoes, stick with the smaller of the two sizes you're considering. If you're planning to use your ice cleats on heavier winter boots, choose the bigger size.

I'm planning to use the ice cleats on both my shoes and boots. But they're different lengths. What should I do?

If the difference in length is small, order the size for the larger boots. Purchase the optional Ankle Strap to use when you use the ice cleats on your shoes. The ankle strap will make sure they stay on. If the difference in length is significant, you may need two sizes of ice cleats. That's because you want the ice cleats to be snug, so they not only stay on your footwear but also stay aligned.

I have a large company. There's no way I can measure everyone's footwear.

I understand. Go by shoe sizes. I'll be happy to exchange sizes later on. However, please make sure you haven't used the ice cleats outdoors.

Is the measuring technique 100% accurate?

Nope. It's accurate most of the time. Measuring is far superior to go by shoe size. 
 

ICE BEAST Ice Cleats Sizing Tips

ICE BEAST Ice Cleats run large. Therefore, if you have a normal winter boot and your shoe size is close to the minimum of a size range, choose the next smaller size. If you have a large, bulky boot, stick with the size chart.
