Diamonds are forever.

Wrap the Yaktrax Diamond Grip Crampon around your hiking boots or casual shoes when the terrain turns icy and slippery. This low-profile crampon features diamond-shaped steel beads that swivel in order to provide hundreds of biting edges. Yaktrax made the cable and grommets out of steel to assure long-lasting durability, and the heavy-duty rubber frame accommodates virtually any footwear you pair it with, except flip-flops maybe.

Super Helpful!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Easy to put on, just enough traction and can fit around all types of shoes. Definitely adds some support for icy conditions and a great purchase for a nice price!

Lightweight and Functional

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

While not as aggressive as some other micro-spike options, these are a great lightweight choice for hiking - or even trail running - on snowy, icy, or otherwise slippery terrain that you can throw in your bag without a second thought. Whether over hiking boots or trail runners, wearing these increased my confidence and improved my posture on slick trails tenfold (no hunching to avoid slipping) and made the experience of winter hiking so much more enjoyable.

no complaints

easy to put on a wide variety of footwear and are holding up well to abuse.

Great for Ice

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are ever tired of slipping on the ice while walking around the neighborhood or walking the dog these are a great option for sure. The diamond grip provides many angles of traction when walking around. They are great for walking the dog when the dog gets excited and pulls on the leash the yaktrax will grip and help you stop from falling. They fit over most winter boots and shoes but I have found that if you want to us them on like the Sorel Caribou boot you will need to get a size bigger.

These really work

I have used these for more than 4 years and love them. Whether hiking on packed ice and snow or getting a little extra traction on mud or shoveling snow off the front walk, these really are what they claim to be. I just bought another pair as a gift for my Dad. I would highly recommend them, especially for hikers who like hiking on snowpacked trails or icy trails.

Can't Winter Hike Without Them!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My go to for hiking icy winter trails. It is perfect for those hikes where you don't need snowshoes, but they are still a little too slick. They are a necessity for any winter hiker!

Great for winter trails.

    These work great for packed snow trails and ice during winter and even when it starts to get a little bit slushy. These are also very easy to get on and off and fit true to size.

    Great to be able to get out in the winter months and let the dogs run.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these for my wife as a gift and she said they fit well and stay on the shoe when hiking. They're for a little extra grip when she's hiking during these spring months.

    Any reason for docking two stars? I'm considering these, so I'm curious why you didn't give 'em a 5/5...

    Great Crampon for Winter Hikes!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Awesome pair of crampons from Yaktrax! I've used these a couple times on winter hikes with substantial elevation gains and have been really impressed so far.

    The Diamond Grip is super durable and gets great traction. Would highly recommend if you are considering a pair.

    No slipping

    Great product. easy to install. great traction.

    A Definite Need for Frequent Snow Hiker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These things are amazing. I have no idea why I ever tried to hike in slick conditions without these. They work great on boot pack trails when things get slick. I use these on basic day hikes to mountaineering when slopes aren't too icy or inclined. They are light weight which makes them great to throw in the pack for "just in case" conditions. They have taking a beating from snow, ice, rocks, and sand and have had no durability issues. I use these on my Asolo hiking boots. I wouldn't recommend these for use with shoes. They are very tight around the boot, which would cause a flimsy shoe too curl up. There are some less "intense" versions that would be better for that.

    Tough Chains

      These are a little sturdier than the YAKTRAX Pro Shoe Crampon. I bought these as a Christmas gift for my dad, who intends to wear em in Iceland during the winter. The chain metal on the bottom will hopefully stand up to rougher terrain YAKTRAX Pro Shoe Crampon and, upon our initial inspection, they do seem to be a little more rugged.

      Great for winter trail running!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      So thankful for these genius inventions! They allow me to trail run even in crazy winter conditions. I wear a pair of smalls over a size 8 Altra Lone Peak trail running shoes which have treads but not enough for snowy trails. I've been able to run on some pretty slippery terrain thanks to these guys. They are probably too intense for sidewalk ice but they do very well on off road snowy trails or roads with a pretty thick layer of ice and snow.
