  • cleaning off your car;

  • negotiating icy, packed snow-covered sidewalks, stairs, and driveways; and

Yaktrax Walk are a favorite choice for

Consider Yaktrax Pro Traction Cleats if you
  • live in an area where you get frequent snow and ice;
  • participate in winter sports; or
  • lastly, work outdoors.
Yaktrax PRO does not give you better traction on ice and packed snow than the Yaktrax Walk. The PRO has tougher real rubber straps, thicker coils, and a removable Velcro® Performance Strap, so it lasts longer and stays on your footwear better.

For superior durability and traction on all slippery surfaces, consider Winter Walking HIGH-PRO or Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats sold at SlipResistant.net.

Are Yaktrax Walk Best for Senior Citizens?

The suitability of Yaktrax for senior citizens depends upon your physical capabilities, where you live, and how you plan to use them.

  • You must remove Yaktrax before going indoors if the interior surface is smooth because the steel coils are extremely slippery on those surfaces. Examples include the supermarket, drug store, and post office. If it's not easy for you to take Yaktrax off and put them back on you have a problem.
  • You should remove Yaktrax before you drive because the straps can impede movement between the pedals.
  • If you live in the city, you must be careful where you step because Yaktrax Traction Cleats with steel coils are extremely slippery on utility covers, sewer grates, floors in train stations, smooth bricks, and on entry steps on mass transit.
  • If you have negotiate steeper inclines; and
  • lastly, if you live where temperatures drop to extremely low temperatures because spikeless traction cleats with steel coils become less effective as ice becomes denser.

If these situations apply to you, go to Ice Cleats for Senior Citizens and the Elderly.

Useful Questions About Yaktrax Walk Traction Cleats

What's the difference between the Yaktrax Walk and the Yaktrax Walker?
There is no difference. Implus renamed the Yaktrax Walker to Yaktrax Walk. It was purely a marketing decision.
Will Yaktrax PRO Traction Cleats give me better traction than the Yaktrax Walk?
No. Yaktrax Pro is more durable than Yaktrax Walk. However, the only way the Pro's traction is superior to the Walk is that the thicker, stronger straps and Velcro® Performance Strap keeps the PRO better aligned on your footwear. You're also safer wearing the Yaktrax Pro because there's a reduced risk of the Pro breaking.
How long do Yaktrax Walk Traction Cleats last?
Yaktrax are a consumable just like any other article of clothing or ice cleat. How long your Yaktrax Walk lasts depends upon several factors including
  • your weight;
  • how often do you use them; and
  • lastly, how much bare payment you walk on. It's rare that every foot of a sidewalk, parking lot, or road is completely covered with ice and packed snow. It's unreasonable to remove them and then put them back on every time you encounter a dry patch. Bare spots speed up the abrasion on the steel coils because the coils are abrasion resistant, not abrasion proof.
  • Will you be walking over rough surfaces that may tend to cut the rubber straps.

Now having said all that on the average you can expect two seasons. When you consider the cost per use it's very low-cost insurance compared to the cost of an injury.

Will Yaktrax Traction Cleats eliminate my risk of slipping on ice and packed snow?
No. No traction device can guarantee you won't slip and fall on ice. What Yaktrax can do is significantly decrease the probability that you won't fall to make the risk acceptable.
Do Yaktrax Walk work in deep snow or slush?
No. Spare Spike Ice Cleats are a low cost alternative for Yaktrax that will work in regular snow and slush.
Must I remove my Yaktrax every time I go indoors?

You absolutely must remove Yaktrax before going indoors where there are smooth, dry floors like those found in the

  • grocery store;
  • drug store,
  • train station; and
  • post office.

That's because Yaktrax Traction Cleats with wound steel coils are extremely slippery on this type of floor.

If you're

  • not capable of putting them on and taking them off
  • constantly going in and out of doors; or
  • lastly, unwilling to put up with the hassle on putting them on and taking them off;

consider Winter Walking LOW-PRO or AltraGrips-Lite Low Profile Ice Cleats.

Are Yaktrax good for hiking?

It depends where you're hiking. Yaktrax are not designed to be used off-road.

  • Rough surfaces will cut the straps and abrade the steel coils.
  • The steel coils can be extremely slippery on exposed rocks especially if they're smooth or rounded.
  • Yaktrax should not be worn on sandy or gravel covered surfaces.
  • Frequent non-ice and snow covered surfaces will also affect durability.
Do Yaktrax Walk work on black ice?
I do not recommend Yaktrax for use on black ice because you need more aggressive traction. Consider Winter Walking HIGH-PRO or Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats.
I've read that Yaktrax have 10 times more biting edges than spiked Ice Cleats. Does this mean the traction is 10 times better than spiked Ice Cleats?
No. The key to traction on ice is penetration. Yaktrax stainless steel coils are non-aggressive. Therefore, traction requires hundreds of biting edges to equal the traction of just one well-designed spike. In addition, the non-aggressive coils become less effective in frigid temperatures when ice is denser.
Can I run with Yaktrax?
I don't recommend any Ice Cleats for running. I especially don't recommend Spike Less Ice Cleats for running because you need aggressive spikes. Furthermore, one of the most common ways Yaktrax fail is that wound steel coil breaks. If a coil breaks, it can catch on you running pants causing you to trip and fall forward.
Will Yaktrax work on Ski Boots?
No. Implus does offer a product called SKITRAX. However, I don't carry them
Will Yaktrax work on Neos® Boots or Bunny Boots?
No. If you have large, bulky boots consider Icegrips Ice Cleats.
Will Yaktrax work on roofs?
No. Furthermore the metal on metal contact climbing a ladder would be extremely hazardous Visit Korkers.com to find tractions devices specifically for roofs.
What are WinterTrax?
WinterTrax are manufactured by Implus. They're an ultra-light duty, one-size-fits-all, extremely inexpensive, and an almost "one-time use" version of Yaktrax. One national marketer sells them calling them Yaktrax and makes it appear that you're getting a great deal by getting two pair of Yaktrax Walk for the price of one pair from another source. Again, WinterTrax are not Yaktrax. I don't sell WINTERTRAX because they don't hold up and they don't stay on your shoes.
Why are they called Yaktrax?
They're named after the surefooted Tibetan Yak. However. the concept has nothing to do with the Yak. The idea originated by observing how Sherpas would tie strips of leather around their shoes to get traction on ice.

Yaktrax Walk will not damage most indoor floors. Nevertheless, you must remove Yaktrax before walking on smooth, dry floors because Yaktrax are extremely slippery on these surfaces.

  • floors in train stations;
  • metallic steps found on buses and trains; and
  • tile, brick, granite, and marble surfaces.

"This item is a necessity to own and use during icy and snowy conditions. Their lightweight use and quick attachment to shoes make them a plus, with many stars to follow.
