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.
