Who Can Benefit from the Yaktrax Run Ice Grips?
The Run Ice Grips are perfect for anyone who would like to run and walk more safely through snowy conditions. Whether you are living in an area with frequent snowfall or are just wary of icy patches, the Run Ice Grips can help you to improve traction and reduce accidents.
Ideal for Running

Are Yaktrax Easy to Put On?
The Yaktrax Runs can be put on and taken off in a matter of moments. To apply them, sit with one leg over the over, then stretch your Yaktrax on from your toe to your heel. Finally, fasten the performance strap securely over the front of your shoe.
Is There Anything I Should Check Before Using Yaktrax?
Before going anywhere with your Yaktrax, make doubly sure they are on correctly. Please check that:
- The word 'heel' or 'toe' on your Yaktrax cannot be read on the heel or toe of your shoe (this means they are inside out).
- The coils are sitting flat against the sole of your shoe and are not sticking out past its edge.
- The outer band consistently grips the outer edge of your footprint, all the way around your shoe (this should not touch the sole).
- There is a circular knob visible on the webbing of your Yaktrax covering your sole.

How Do The Yaktrax Run Ice Grips Work?
Most running shoes don't provide enough traction to allow you to travel safely over wet and slippery surfaces. The Yaktrax Run Ice Grips use a combination of criss-crossing steel coils spikes that dig into snow, increasing the amount of grip your shoes provide each time you rake a step.

Do Yaktrax Eliminate the Risk of Ice?
