Caveats About Ice Cleats and Driving

Driving Car Wearing Ice Cleats
  • It's the manufacturer's opinion that the Ice Cleats appearing on this page are safe to wear while driving.
  • Determining whether Ice Cleats are safe to wear while driving is a personal decision. Employees must get approval from their Safety Manager and Management to wear Ice Cleats while driving. That's because
    • Adding anything to your footwear could be considered an additional hazard. It's your responsibility to assess the risk of wearing Ice Cleats driving your particular car or truck.
    • Many companies restrict divers to using strap-on heel cleats only.
  • Employees must get approval from their Safety Manager to wear Ice Cleats while driving.

Ice Cleats Safe to Wear While Driving

Full-Sole Ice Cleats

Always opt for Full-Sole Ice Cleats whenever possible. Having well-distributed aggressive tungsten carbide studs across the entire bottom of your shoe or boot

  • provides far better traction especially on uneven ice; and
  • allow you to walk naturally because of spikes at the base of the heel and at the front.
Rough, Uneven Ice

Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats

Winter Walking LOW-PRO is my top recommendation. LOW-PRO is also safe to wear on most indoor floors without damaging them. So you can leave LOW-PRO all day.

26 1mm tungsten carbide studs and aggressive self-cleaning treads provide excellent traction on ice, packed snow, deep snow, and black ice.

If you don't mind the bright color, these are the Ice Cleats to get that you can safely wear driving your car. Most people don't care about the color. However, some people, like limousine drivers, prefer something more subdued.

AltraGrips-Lite are also available in XS.

Heel-Only Ice Cleats

I always recommend Full-Sole Ice Cleats whenever Company Policy doesn't prohibit their use while driving. It's critical that every stud is effective on both Full-Sole and Heel-Only Ice Cleats.

However, aggressive, effective studs are more crucial on Heel-Only Ice Cleats because you depend upon far fewer spikes to gain traction.

Therefore, choose Winter Walking HEEL GRIPS™ with 26 2mm tungsten carbide studs if you're not constantly going in and out of doors. That's because you have to remove HEEL GRIPS before going indoors because of the longer spikes will damage interior floors and may be slippery on smooth, hard surfaces.

Choose Winter Walking LOW-PRO HEEL™ with 26 1mm tungsten carbide studs if you're constantly going in and out of doors because they're safe to wear on most interior floors.

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.
    (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 that fit men's and women's shoes and boots according to the sizing charts.
Always try your Ice Grips 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 your considering. If you're planning to use your Ice Grips 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 Grips 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
