Life doesn’t stop when winter starts. We know that because winter is in our DNA and we keep moving through it all. Yaktrax® was born high in the Himalayas, inspired by a seasoned Sherpa striding confidently across slick ice and thick snow. His footwear would spark a revolutionary invention — coil technology.

Since then, Yaktrax has spread across the globe to help athletes, construction crews, public service workers, soldiers, outdoorsmen, and anyone else who lives, works and plays in winter weather. Whether you walk, run or work on packed snow and ice, you can step confidently.

Named after the sure-footed Tibetan Yak, Yaktrax proudly offers a wide array of ice traction devices for your shoes in addition to other winter accessories. Whether you need the Walk for getting to the bus stop or mailbox or require extreme outdoor traction with our Summit™, Yaktrax will always provide solid, predictable traction in any condition.

While Yaktrax devices are designed to provide greater traction on ice or packed snow, always exercise caution and use extreme care when walking, running or working on ice and packed snow. Yaktrax devices  will not eliminate the inherent risks of such conditions. Additionally, Yaktrax devices will not eliminate the inherent risks and dangers posed by the performance of any activities in such conditions.

  • When wearing any Yaktrax traction device, always exercise caution and extreme care. Failure to do so could result in injury

  • Ensure that you are wearing the correct size ( based on your shoe size ) and that the device fits correctly on your footwear - coils or crampon plates should be flush across the sole of your footwear and the sides of the device should be fully up and over the outside edge of your footwear. 

  • Yaktrax is not for use on gravel, concrete or sanded roads cleared of snow (with the exception of the ski model).

  • Avoid surfaces such as marble floors, or any non-icy, non-snowy surfaces when wearing Yaktrax.

  • Yaktrax is not for indoor use.

  • The improper use or installation of Yaktrax could result in injury.

  • Always use common sense when using any traction device on ice or snow.
