    Quick and easy instant traction.

    Instead of pulling the ol' banana peel slip and eating it on icy trails, strap on the Kahtoola MICROspikes Traction System for instant footing and more graceful movement. Burly stainless steel cleats are connected by flex chains and an elastomer harness for a snug and secure fit and high performance traction.

    With a new lower profile harness, eyelet reinforcements, and an integrated toe bale, these MICROspikes are the lightest and lowest profile version yet. A heel tab makes the system a breeze to get on or off, and a sturdy front bar holds it in place up front. Whether you're walking the dog, fishing on a frozen river, or doing that high-altitude hike to an icy peak, the MICROspikes help you keep your footing and prevent your butt from hitting the ground. And now the MICROspikes come with a tote sack so you have somewhere to store them when you get to lower elevations.

    Get the job done

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great spikes! They fit around most shoes, I wear a size 11.5 and large fit tight and right on speed cross3’s. They are easy to put on and get off. They are perfect for hiking or trail running across ice and packed snow and I’m glad I have these in my gear pack.

    worth their weight in gold

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had multiple pairs of these over the last few years and would say they're a must have for folks with an icey driveway or people that hike during the shoulder season.

    Amazing!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are incredible. I have used them on a seriously hairy trail next to dropoffs and they never slipped or gave me any trouble at all. Fully bite every step. Very happy with these.

    Game Changer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These were my first pair of micro spikes and all i have to say is WOW. I've been early spring hiking for years and I can believe i haven't invested in theses sooner. Once you put these on slipping and sliding on the trail becomes a thing of the past. They fit snugly against the bottom of your footwear and almost disappear. I hiked across several rocky areas with the spikes on, too lazy to take them off,hoping they would hold up and sure enough they did. Great quality product.

    A Hiking Enhancer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After hiking with these a few times I can not believe I used to hike so much in the spring time without them. There is that transition time in Spring where some trails and parts of a trail will have some residual snow on them, and these micro-spikes make it like the snow was not there. The secure snuggly around your shoes/boots and sit along the trend of your show and provide that extra grip. Your feet do not slide or lose their place, both going up and down. They are easy to put on and take off, with a sturdy construction that stands up to the terrain. They come with a carry sack and pack down to about the size of a soft-ball. I would recommend these to anyone who hikes, especially in places with variability in trail conditions.

    Great traction Suspect quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought a Large set 1 year ago and used them ice fishing for 3 months. Worked great, good traction fairly easy to put on. This January went to use them and one of the side straps was broke, weird, they were ok
    when I put them away. Backcountry was fairly good to work with and with a little hassle got them replaced. When I bought them I ordered them for a size 10 boot which called for a large. Not sure how they recommend the size based on shoe size or boot size but large do seem to small for my winter fishing boots.

    Absolutely Necessary in Winter!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I honestly never considered hiking in winter until I did attempt hiking in winter and realized there had to be a happy medium between regular hiking boots and snowshoes. So that's when I did some research and decided to buy these spikes. Now that I have used them, I am hooked. They are super lightweight, easy to put on and take off and have saved me from some serious spills. I can honestly say that these are life savers! I can traverse up and down steep inclines/declines with speed and ease knowing that these are going to keep me gripped to the land, whether it be icy or muddy. I've been telling everyone I know about these!

    No slip n slide

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are one of the best investments I have made for outdoor hiking in the snow, mud, rain, or any trail you think you will have grip problems. Unless you are doing some kind of serious ice hiking these are perfect. You can take them on and off very easily and they come with a convenient carry case.

    No more excuses to stay off the trails

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After taking a huge spill running down an icy canyon, my husband has been wearing these more often. They are awesome in the mud, snow and ice. He says the traction is great and these are fairly light weight considering the job that they do. He did complain of soreness on his feet after wearing these for a 4 or 5 hour run so maybe give them a brake if possible.

    No more excuses to stay off the trails

    Good stuff.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Here's what my friend has to say about her new microspikes: These feel super sturdy. Haven't put them through the wringer yet, but so far they have done their job quite well. The medium fits my size 9 Salomon boots great.

    Nothing better

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are the best microspikes for any winter hiking. They're easy to use, work well, and stay on your feet. I haven't slipped on the trails yet, even when it's steep and icy!

    Amazing!

      I was looking for a product that would allow me to keep running outdoors during the inclement weather while not having to worry about slipping and falling on ice and snow. I looked at a lot of different options and went with the MicroSpikes and I am sure glad I did. They are perfect for winter trail running.

      I've run a total of 7 miles with these so far and I couldn't be happier. I ran on compact snow and sheets of ultra slippery ice and never broke stride. These things didn't move an inch from the time I out them on until the time I took them off. Pretty sure I'll always have a pair of these in my car as long as I'm a runner.

      No More Slip

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought a two pairs of these for my parents. They live on a lake in the Northeast and have used these a couple of times to get around on the snow and ice. The sizes are versatile and interchangeable between different pairs of boots. My father has a size 12 boot and he uses the size large on his work boots and also on his snowboard boots. My mother is a size 8 and uses the size medium for her shoes and hiking boots.

      Very useful and easy, these micro spikes will not let you down.

      Best micros ever

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      Bought these as a gift because I already have a pair and love them. Easy to carry, put on, clean and store. The gaiters that go with them are a nice accessory to have in your pack. Boot fit guide is accurate.

      Vastly Superior Microspikes

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've worn a few other brands of microspikes and the Kahtoola Microspikes are the cream of the crop. I've never lost one and they last forever (I think). I grabbed my first pair 5 years ago and still hammering on them. I now help to train and lead men and women on hikes and prepare them for Mount Rainier and other PNW mountains where we solely rely upon these trustworthy tools.

      I not only use them for hiking but also throw them on during those slick winter mountain trail running days.

      Don't let those other microspikes fool you with their gimmicks and lower prices. Get a pair of these and keep that smile on your face.

      Night and Day

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These things do the job! I've heard horror stories of other spikes but these stay solid on your feet, provide excellent traction, and are super easy to use. Super surprised how well they grip on a variety of surfaces. Def a recommendation!

      Unanswered Question

      I take a women's 8 or 8.5 boot (US). Which size should I order? I'm concerned about a medium and I see you do not carry a small. I want to be a happy Customer and not have them come off or lose them in the Italian Dolomites on a week long hike with no civilization in sight.

      I usually wear a size 10 or 10.5 US Men's shoe. This is, unfortunately right between the M and L sizes. Which should I purchase?
