The Unique Design of ICESPIKE

Engineered to optimize performance and withstand extreme mechanical abuse!

Icespikes are not hardware store screws. They are application-specific engineered premium traction devices with materials and design carefully chosen to optimize performance and longevity.


Icespikes are manufactured from cold rolled tool steel to withstand extreme mechanical abuse and further hardened to Rockwell hardness 50-52 for exceptional surface penetration and unsurpassed durability.

Design Parameters

Icespikes are specifically designed for their intended purpose -- they are not run-of-the-mill screws! Extra wide washer for better stability on the sole of the shoe added along with locking serrations that firmly engage the rubber sole to prevent loosening of the device. Wider and deeper slot included to promote self cleaning of ice and debris. Sharpened edge incorporated for simply the best traction available.

new Icespike Design


ICESPIKE is an amazing new concept - an innovative non-slip shoe system that in a very simple way offers maximum *Traction *Comfort *Ease of Use *Safety and *Durability!

ICESPIKE is a system of patented composite material, heat-hardened ice spikes which provide superior grip and long lasting-lasting durability. The integrity of each ice spike has been tested to maintain hardness and integrity of grip for 500 miles. ICESPIKE will not wear down like softer sheet metal or stainless steel, and won't break or crack under intense cold or use.

ICESPIKES ice spikes are designed so that the deep groove in each spike is self-cleaning, so there is no buildup of ice, snow or debris.

The ICESPIKE system includes 32 spikes and a precision installation tool. It is semi-permanent, will not damage soles, and can be easily removed.

Features and Advantages of ICESPIKE

ICESPIKE ice spikes are low profile and lightweight. This is especially important for runners who need less weight in a traction system. Properly placed on the sole of any shoe or boot (3/8" from edge), you don't even know you're wearing them! 12 spikes are recommended per sole, and 8 replacements are provided. The spikes lateral stability and unsurpassed grip for push off. ICESPIKE provides traction without the pressure on top of the foot or the bulk underneath the shoe of cumbersome strap-on devices!
