YakTrax PRO Traction Cleats
(3/2/11) The review for YakTrax’s PRO traction cleats was left for us by Rion M. from Portland, Oregon. I’m sure being from Oregon you have plenty of chances to use these cleats. Thanks Rion for the review.
I’ve owned both the Pro and regular Yaktrax, and I have to say that the Pro are the superior version. I’ve used this version two straight winters in Oregon, on my snow boots as well as regular tennis shoes in walking to work every day. The Velcro strap on the Pros keep the grips in place, and I’ve never had any problems. My coworkers also like these far better than the Stabilicers… I had someone try mine out, and she bought a pair for herself that very day.
I think the only pair I destroyed came from ordering a size too small… though they stretch, there is a finite life, and I actually snapped the support between the heel and ball sections by yanking too hard on one of my pairs. My only warning to you. Other than that, they’re GREAT!
