Can Ice Cleats be Worn Indoors?

Most ice cleats cannot be used indoors for two reasons. First, most ice cleats have sharp spikes that will damage most floors. Second, spiked ice cleats and especially traction cleats with wound steel coils, are extremely slippery on hard, smooth surfaces like cement or tile.

So, if you're wearing ordinary ice cleats you have a problem when you go indoors. You have to take your ice cleats off before you enter. When you leave, you have to put them back on. Constantly putting ice cleats on and off is a major hassle. Many people, and especially seniors and people with disabilities, can't do it. Furthermore, many places don't have a bench where you can sit to safely take your ice cleats off and put them back on. As a result, many people won't wear ice cleats because it's just too much trouble.

Fortunately, Winter Walking makes ice cleats with exclusive, patented Transitional Traction that won't cause damage and are safe to wear on most indoor floors. Winter Walking Ice Cleats make wearing ice cleats practical. And, these ice cleats are safe to wear while you're driving! So there's even less hassle.

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.

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 on most indoor floors. Most people don't care about color. However, some people, like delivery drivers, prefer something more subdued.

AltraGrips-Lite LP have the same advantages as Winter Walking LOW-PRO as far as being safe to wear on most indoor floors.

  • They have 16 1mm tungsten carbide studs instead of 26 found on LOW-PRO.
  • The treads are not quite as aggressive and they do not use Dual-Material Construction so they're less durable.
  • Many people and businesses prefer an all-black Ice Cleat because it calls less attention to you.

Important Things to Consider About Heel CleatsCrucial Things to Consider About Heel Ice Cleats

I always recommend full-sole ice cleats whenever Company Policy doesn't prohibit using them. Every stud must be 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 are slippery on smooth, hard surfaces.

Choose gritted ice cleats when non-conductivity and non-sparking. Examples include oil and gas extraction, processing, and transport, refueling operations. around explosives, and grain storage. Non-sparking ice cleats are much safer than ice cleats that are only spark-retardant.

GRIPS-LITE give you improved traction on a variety of slick surfaces including oil and grease, wet floors, and chemicals. However, if your primary concern is slick winter surfaces and you do not require non-conductivity or non-sparking, choose a Studded Ice Cleat. That's because gritted ice cleats only reduce falls on the ice and snow by 40 to 50 percent and because they're far less effective in frigid temperatures when the ice is denser.


Helpful Questions About the Best Ice Cleats for Driving

How can spiked ice cleats not damage floors or be slippery on hard, smooth floors?
Winter Walking Transitional Traction Ice Cleats have 1mm tungsten carbide studs that minimally protrude beyond the treads. Therefore, both the tread and the spikes make contact with the surface. So the floor doesn't get scratched and the ice cleats give you far better traction on smooth hard surfaces. Also, you must exercise common sense. If you would intentionally grind or drag your foot into the floor, you could scratch it.
Are Transition Traction Ice Cleats safe to wear on all interior floors?
No. You wouldn't wear them on hardwood floors or floors made out of soft materials.
Can you wear the recommended ice cleats on indoor rugs?

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.
  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.

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
