Kahtoola Nanospikes vs Yaktrax

Kahtoola Nanospikes

Last year, I tried both Yaktrax and Kahtoola NANOspikes. We had icy sidewalks for about ten days and getting around was simply sketchy and dangerous.

The Yaktrax kept falling off my shoes and when I went into stores with concrete floors they became downright dangerous. On concrete, Yaktrax slip worse than regular shoes on ice. I nearly took headers on concrete two or three times. People can die that way.

Finally, I found the Kahtoola NANOspikes. They are easy to put on, they stay on and they don’t slip on indoor floors, not even on concrete.

With a cold winter on its way, I thought I’d suggest people order these now.
