Do I Need Ankle Straps?

Winter Walking Ice Cleats fit securely on most shoes and boots and most people do not need or use the Ankle Strap. But if you walk through deep snow (especially wet snow) or mud you should consider the Ankle Strap.
The Ankle Strap also reduces the risk that you would somehow otherwise lose one. Winter Walking Ice Cleats are very comfortable. You may not notice if one is missing until you've traveled some distance or worse yet slip and fall.

  • Constantly In and Out of Doors
  • Sewer Grates and Manhole Covers are Hazardous
  • Gritted Ice Cleats are Not the Answer
You're constantly going in and out of buildings, walking through a train stations, getting on commuter trains, subways or buses or simply ducking into a shop to pick up a quick cup of coffee. Most ice cleats require that you take them off before going indoors. Ice cleats with sharp spikes will damage floors and slippery on hard floors like marble, granite or tiles. Spikeless ice cleats with wound coils are extremely slippery on smooth interior floors and must be removed.

That's a lot of "putting on and taking off". It's impractical and many people won't take the time to do it. Look around you. Who isn't running late and in a hurry especially when you're running late in the first place because of bad weather?

Non Ice Covered Sewer Grate CoverSewer grates and manhole covers are rarely snow or ice covered because of the heat below them. Stepping on them... especially stepping off a curb... is a major hazard. Both spiked and spikeless ice cleats create metal to metal contact and very little traction. Non Ice Covered Manhole CoverThe same thing is true when you're stepping up or down on metal steps typically found on buses and trains. If you're not paying close attention to where you're stepping you can wind up on the ground with you leg straight out in front of you extending into traffic. And how often are you preoccupied with work or just trying to avoid getting run over by a cab and not watching where you're stepping?
Gritted Ice Cleats can be worn on most interior surfaces and will provide traction on sewer grates and manhole covers. But gritted ice cleats are good on ice... they're not excellent on ice. And gritted ice cleats become less effective in very cold temperatures when ice becomes extremely dense. The rule of thumb is the more aggressive the spike or stud... and the more spikes or studs... the better the traction and it's true for the most part.
