Person slipping on a rural farm lane
"The ice is way too dangerous to go outside today. I'll just take the day off!" said no farmer ever.
What You Already Know About Rural Living in Winter
Rural living has its own unique set of winter challenges. Municipal snow removal often doesn't service your lane. As a result, conditions on the lane tend to get worse as winter wears on. But you still have to use the lane to get the mail.

For farmers and many people with a farmette, multiple daily trips to the barn aren't optional. There's no "calling off" because of bad weather.

Getting injured from slipping on the ice is not an option. While nothing can guarantee you won't slip on the ice, ice cleats are your best way to reduce the risk. Choosing the right ice cleats minimizes the risk of an injury even more.

We share the common goal of keeping you as healthy and injury free this winter as possible. So let's get started.

Considerations When Shopping for Ice Cleats for Rural Areas

You Need Ice Cleats that Work on All Slippery Surfaces

The winter scene above is typical for ice and snow covered country lanes across the United States and Canada. It reminds me of my daughter's place in Vermont except her driveways is solid ice, on a steep hill, and with a reverse banked, sharp curve that makes life "exciting."

You have to deal with all slippery winter conditions, including ice, packed and deep snow, and black ice. However, many recreational-grade ice cleats typically sold in hardware, sporting goods, and department stores do not address all those conditions. They say their ice cleats are for ice and packed snow. Many recreational ice cleats actually detract from the effectiveness of the aggressive treads on your shoes and boots in the deeper snow.

Aggressive, Well-Distributed Spikes are Crucial

The ice often becomes uneven so that only a small area of your ice cleats is making contact with the ground. Well-distributed spikes ensure that at least one spike is contacting the ice. It's also important that the spike be as aggressive as possible to penetrate the ice giving you traction quickly. Both of these facts are important because once you lose traction, it's difficult to get it back.

Another reason aggressive spikes are critical is that less-aggressive treads become less effective or ineffective in frigid temperatures when ice becomes denser.

Self-Cleaning Treads are Critical

Studs have to make contact with the ice to provide traction. Spikes and aggressive treads can't work if the bottom of the ice cleat is caked with snow or jammed with debris. Ice cleats with wound steel coils are particularly susceptible to this problem.

As self-cleaning treads flex, debris is expelled, so the ice cleats remain effective.

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.
