Kiss the treadmill goodbye.
Kahtoola's NANOspikes Traction System allows you to take the streets this winter without the worry of taking a digger on an icy sidewalk. Durable but lightweight, each pair has ten tungsten carbide spikes that bite into icy surfaces as you run. The system is available in small, medium, and large, so you can get the right fit for your running shoes.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I picked up two more pairs of the NanoSpikes for my parents, and they're beyond jazzed about the performance. They have a very steep, treacherously icy driveway that demands constant shoveling/maintenance in the Oregonian winters, so the grip on these puppies has eased all their worries about slipping and falling. My dad is a size 12 M and his wife is a size 7 W, and the L+XS combo worked well for them.
Kicks the living crap out of YakTrax
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Okay, think about the confidence you feel when you finally make the switch to studded snow tires after schlepping around chains--that's what running on ice or packed snow in the NANOspikes feels like. You can quite literally do plyometrics and sprints on sheet ice. No joke. The tungsten spikes have never failed me, even when my gremlin of a senior dog is jerking me all over the place when I have her on leash. Best of all, no foot fatigue from uneven/weird texture on the bottom of your shoes. You can run comfortably as you normally would!
Easy to put on, good on icy trails
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got these for my husband who is a videographer and films often outside on snowy and icy trails. He said they are very easy to put on and come in a bag that makes them easy to store. They are really good on mixed dirt and snow trails. They are lightweight and not cumbersome.
