    Stay sure-footed when things get icy.

    Fear not the slick, icy surfaces of your front walk or urban streets when you strap on the Yaktrax Pro Shoe Crampon. This spikeless rubber device slips over your boot or shoe and provides ice-biting traction thanks to its SkidLock steel coil design. The flexible, natural rubber strapping conforms to your foot without hindering your natural step, and Yaktrax also added a hook-and-loop strap to keep your foot securely locked in. When you get to your destination, the Yaktrax pack up small until it’s time to head back onto the ice.

    About the fit...

      My husband and I each bought a pair of these for use in the ice and snow in our neighborhood and on some easy winter trails. He wears a size 13 and has a pair of Oboz hiking shoes that he wanted to wear them with. I have a size 8 foot and wanted to use them with my Keen hiking boots. The company sizing states that we should be a L and S respectively. After reading the reviews here, we decided to play it safe and order one in each size and send the 2 back that didn't work out. It was a good decision as we both sized up to an XL and M respectively. We both struggled with the smaller size to get them on our shoes and the placement of the rubberized part over the heel did not seem right with the smaller size. The larger size was easier for each of us to put on our shoes and the rubberized parts on the toe and heel seemed to go into place correctly. The coils on the bottom of the shoes were in the right place with the larger size too.

      As for getting to try them out, well, it so happens that the storm we were hoping to use them for delayed their arrival and now the snow is gone. We will certainly try them at the next opportunity. Although, given the other reviews, I wasn't so worried about how they would perform for light walking and hiking; I was more worried about the fit.

      Summary: if you are anywhere near the top end of the size range, you are probably going to want to go one size up from their recommendation.

      Helped from falling

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bought these for a trip to some of the national parks in southern Utah in mid winter. They really did the job for helping break through ice and loose snow. Hiking up inclines was a breeze. I used my Sorel boots that have a small heel so the coil would slip off every now and then. Easy fix. My boyfriend had no problems with his.

      Helped from falling

      They'll keep you on your toes

        I wore these in Bryce Canyon in the winter. While other tourists were slip-n-sliding down snow-packed trails, I was walking comfortably. These aren't designed for climbing icy ridge-lines but they are perfect for a casual winter hike.

        The closest thing to having super powers

          Revel in the satisfaction gained from a solitary run in the frozen tundra that others won't dare to brave. I just ordered a replacement pair of these crampons after several years of using them for both city and trail running, and they've proven very durable. You may never be able to walk on water, but these bad boys will enable you to run on glare ice like it's dry concrete, and that's pretty cool on it's own.

          Don't waste your money

            Unfortunately I was quite dissatisfied with this purchase. I used them on icy trails and some packed snow. They stayed in place for 10 minutes at most, afterwards the front became displaced and stretched over the toe. I made certain to have them on tight and to have the coils aligned properly. Nevertheless, as my run progressed the coils found their way to the borders and the sides of my sole barring them useless.
            I've used them twice since i bought them two months ago, and unfortunately I cannot return them.

            In turn, DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

            Nice Alternative to Slipping

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            These do serve nicely on icy ground conditions, I have even used them as micro spike alternatives and they held up nicely. I would wear them is very late Spring or early Fall when hiking trails are wet and icy at higher elevations. They fit right over my boots and stay in place pretty nicely. I didn't experience any squeezing on my foot at all, that some other similar products may provide.

            I would say hiking a lot in them isn't quite the recommended use, but I think they can certainly suffice if needed. Definitely nice for walking the dog in winter, trail running, or the like.

            Have fun in all conditions!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Getting out in the winter can sometimes be a mental hurdle when its cold/icy/snowy. When you have the yaktrax on though, it relieves some of the stress about slippin' and fallin' on your A$$!
            I've used yaktrax now for about 2 seasons and I've come to like the pro model the most for hiking and running on trails in the winter. The straps that go over your toes make sure your yaktrax make it back to the car with you unlike the base model yaktrax with no toe strap.
            I've found the pro model to be more durable than the run model and that it provides comparable performance when running on fresh snow or icy trails.
            The pro model really shines when the trail has sections of ice, snow, and mud because it does well in all 3 conditions without having to stop and take them off. Because I don't take mine off when the ice or snow stops, I probably wear through mine quicker than normal.
            These are definitely sized to fit around running shoes, and if you are going to be wearing these with boots, you probably want to size up if your close to the next size.
            I probably put around 20 miles a week on these in the winter and I go through about 2 pairs per season.

            Great option for slippery slopes

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I used these for a work trip for about 12 days straight and they were great. They fit over my boots really easily and stay on very well with the grippy rubber. The only thing that I notices is when I was walking on the grated stairs they would catch in the grates and eventually after a few days one of the side rubber attachments broke but as long as you stay away from those kind of stairs you will be a happy camper.

            strong steps

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            i love the yaks for the shoulder seasons, when there still may be a layer of ice in the mountains during a hike, but down in the valley it is dry and warm. They're small and packable in a daypack, so you can take them with you should you need to throw them on for a better grip than your traditional trail shoes.

            As Sure-footed as a....Yak.

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Bought these as a gift for my retired parents for some extra traction while walking the dog and shoveling a mile long driveway during Colorado winters. They have been using them 3-4 times a week for a couple of months and absolutely love them. In a fully tree covered neighborhood, the roads get icy, and stay icy. These have provided enough additional grip that they don't have to worry about getting out and about, even on some of the nastier days. The sizing worked out perfectly in their situation.

            Keeps me running

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I got my first pair 2 years ago to keep me running in Utah winters. Now I'm giving them as gifts. When the roads and trails are slick, whether you're hiking, walking the dog, or running these are key to keeping vertical.

            Run all year long!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            These get the job done. I trail run with them in the winter and I don't have to worry about slowing down for ice. They also fit on my hiking boot as well for those snowy backpacking adventures. I have a size 8 foot and got size small. They fit great on both my running shoes and my hiking boots. I would highly recommend them!

            Way better than the original

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I got these to replace my old walking Yak Trax and am very happy I did. They work a lot better than the original pair I had; the velcro band that goes over top of foot makes it so you don't end up back at your car with only one left on my shoes. Good for hiking trails in the winter and wherever you need to walk on ice.

            I wear a size 7 womens shoe and got these in a small. They are a tight fit on my winter trail shoes and if you are getting these for bulkier boots, I'd go up a size.

            Great Item

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            The Pro Shoe Crampon is wonderful. I love to throw them on when on an icy slick trail or even a sidewalk to avoid busting my behind. These work wonderfully. I have tried a number of brands and styles over the years, but I really like that this particular one has a strap that goes over the top of your foot to ensure it stays in place. Overall I woudl highly recommend.

            Please keep in mind when sizing you may need to size up if you intend to use winter boots. I wear a 9 women's shoe and winter boot so I selected the small said to fit 6.5 to 10. It was a workout trying to put these on. I ended up needing to exchange for the Medium which is for 10.5 to 12 to work for my Sorel and Vasque winter boots.

            I would like to know if XL size will fit...

            I would like to know if XL size will fit size 15 wide Sorel Caribou boot as indicated?http://www.sorel.com/Product.aspx?top=1&cat=120&prod=49
