Casual and not so casual runners and hikers don’t have to let bad weather keep them indoors. Kahtoola MICROspikes and NANOspikes will have you running and hiking like a mountain goat with no fear of slips and skids. MICROspikes have been designed for hiking boots and feature a low profile elastomer harness that should be compatible with almost any shoe. Just slip them over your hiking boot and you’ll have 3/8 inch (1 centimeter) spikes that will dig in to icy winter trails. Not a hiker? Then Kahtoola’s NANOspikes for running shoes might be a better option. They feature a wrap around TPU harness with 10 traction nubs per shoe that will bite into slippery and icy surfaces like a pair of studded snow tires without hindering the flexibility of your shoes. MICROspikes are priced at $69.95 a pair and the NANOspikes are priced at $49.95 per pair. Both sets come with a handy tote sack to store the spikes when they aren’t needed.

  2. Another option is Icetrekkers by Yaktrax. They have several different styles to choose from. I’ve been wearing their Diamond Grip version both on wet slippery grass and on very muddy mountain trails, without a slip. And I’ve used them on both Crocs and hiking boots with no problem.
