Spiked and Studded Shoes and Traction Aids

Our Men’s Top Picks

Our top picks meet our minimum slip resistance standard for icy conditions.

Caution: Please keep in mind that metal ice cleats and any over-shoe traction aids with metal cleats are specifically designed for icy and snowy surfaces. Wearing these on other surfaces could pose as a serious slip or trip hazard, especially on hard floor surfaces such as terrazzo and ceramic tiles. Please be mindful when wearing any footwear that has spikes/studs.
