The ice cleats shown are the best available in 2020, period. And I make that statement based upon 16+ years of selling ice cleats. However, there is no one best ice cleat for everyone because you must simultaneously consider
  • where you live;
  • how you plan to use your ice cleats;
  • the activities you'll be doing while you're wearing them; and
  • lastly, your physical limitations.

There Is No One Best Ice Cleat for Shoes

What may be perfect ice cleats for one person may be totally impractical and unsuitable for another user. That's because deciding on the Best ice cleats depends upon your
  • physical limitations;
  • location;
  • planned activities;
  • occupation; and
  • balancing the risk of slipping on the ice vs. convenience.
Here's an example. Winter Walking HIGH-PRO™ Ice Cleats are the Best ice cleats for preventing slips and falls in all winter slippery conditions. However, HIGH-PRO Ice Cleats are impractical for people who live in or commute into cities,

That's because you have to remove aggressive ice cleats from your shoes every time you go indoors, on mass transit, or into your car. In this situation, Winter Walking LOW-PRO™ are best ice cleats because you can safely wear them on most indoor floors, on mass transit, and while driving. You can often put LOW-PRO Ice Cleats on your shoes and let them on all day.

Beware if Best Ice Cleats Reviews

The overwhelming majority of Best Ice Cleats Reviews found online are not compiled by ice cleats experts. Most reviews summarize customer reviews from online stores. You may be thinking why is that wrong?

The reason that these reviews can be misleading is that all but the worst ice cleats get favorable reviews. And the reason for those good reviews is because almost any ice cleats give you better traction on ice than leather or rubber-soled shoes and boots.

When someone compiles a list of Best Toasters and makes a poor recommendation, you wind up with burned toast or having to replace a toaster before you should. When someone recommends the wrong ice cleats for your shoes, people can get hurt.

Many top-rated ice cleats fail to protect you in certain but common slippery winter conditions. For example, you may have had great results using spikeless ice cleats for months or years only to find out that spikeless ice cleats become far less effective on frigid, denser ice or a steep hill. You become aware of these facts when you fall.
Another example is ice cleats without aggressive, self-cleaning treads seem OK until the day that a thin layer of snow covers the ice. Snow can build up on the bottom of the ice cleats preventing the studs from making contact with the ice, and you slip and fall.

You might think that if the occurrences where regular ice cleats fail don't happen often, who cares? Well, you should care because it only has to happen once, just one injury, to change your whole life.

Even the best ice cleats for a person, place, or activity can't guarantee you won't fall. However, it's my professional opinion that the ice cleats I recommend minimize the risk of injuries on ice better than any other ice cleats for your unique situation.

Crucial Ice Cleats Sizing Tips

  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.
  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.

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 your 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 Cleat Ankle Straps
Winter Walking Ice Cleats fit securely on most shoes and boots. Most people do not need or use the Ankle Strap. However, Ankle Straps add an additional level of comfort, knowing your ice cleats will stay on your footwear. It's more critical to consider Ankle Straps if you
