Heel Grips heel cleats reduce slips and falls on ice, snow, packed snow and black ice. Strap-on heel cleats are used when full size ice cleats are not an option. This would include situations whereby limiting the cleats to the heel section of shoes or boots...
  • insures compliance with company safety directives prohibiting wearing anything on footwear that might somehow inhibit operating foot controls while driving;
  • fully exposes the defined heel on shoes and boots to make climbing ladders safer; and
  • reduces the risk of slipping off foot rests while operating snowmobiles and ATVs or pedals while biking on snow and ice.

Strap-on heel ice cleats serve double duty. Obviously they prevent the heel from slipping. But they also have to provide sufficient traction to prevent your footwear from twisting especially if you're walking on uneven ice. This is why you'll appreciate the professional quality features Winter Walking has incorporated into Heel Grips® ice cleats. It's the culmination of over 40 years experience in manufacturing industry-standard professional ice cleats that make Heel Grips stand out from the competition.
  • You'll get the best possible traction from a heel ice cleat because there are 10 well-distributed 2mm tungsten carbide studs... five on each Heel Grip.
    • Tungsten carbide studs are the hardest and most durable far exceeding the life of carbon steel studs found in many competing products.
    • The stud design assures that they will remain equally aggressive and effective throughout the life of the heel grip.
    • Well-positioned studs assures the maximum number of studs will make contact on uneven ice.
    • Studs are molded into place for maximum reliability and durability.
  • An aggressive tread insures traction in deep snow.
  • Replaceable straps easily and quickly adjust for use on all your footwear.
  • Fit bulky boots by purchasing the optional strap extension.
  • Heel Grips add no noticeable weight to your footwear because each Heel Grip weighs less than 4oz.
  • You'll always have them with you because they easily fit into your pocket or glove compartment
  • Use outdoors only.
  • Sizes: S, M, L, Xl and XXL

Always thoroughly inspect any ice cleat before using.

Are heel ice cleats as effective as full ice cleats?

No. If you can use a full ice cleat that has studs on both the front and heel you should use them. High Pro and Low Pro ice cleats are highly recommended. In my opinion heel ice cleats are a compromise and should only used when there is a compelling reason regarding other risk avoidance or practicality not to wear full size ice cleats. Here's why...

When you walk normally your heel is the first thing to make contact with the ground. But it's also true that when walking normally there can be a fraction of a second when neither heel is on... or at least fully... on the ground and no stud makes contact with the ice when wearing heel ice cleats. That's when the studs on the forefoot of the shoe with a full-size ice cleat play a major role in stopping you from slipping.

It's so incredibly important that you get the best heel ice cleats with the rear studs positioned as far to the base of the heel as possible and that those studs be as sharp, reliable, aggressive and instantaneously effective as possible and that the heel ice cleat be rock solid on your footwear. That's why I sell and recommend Heel Grips.
