Great on slippery ice
Fantastic! Did not wipe out on wet, slippery ice.
Keep your urban adventures going all winter long with high-performance traction designed specifically for hard, slippery surfaces. Ten ultra-tough tungsten-carbide spikes underfoot shrug off high-mileage adventures on abrasive surfaces like asphalt and concrete, while a low profile design means you won’t have to adjust your stride while running or walking. For increased comfort, the spikes are integrated into flexible plates that disperse impact forces on the foot, so you can stay out longer and go farther.

Thesse are so good I'm giving them to my friends
For an old fart like me, these are the best. They keep me walking in the winter. Without them the ice would keep me and my dog home bound. The ice this winter has been exceptionally treacherous , many people did not clear their sidewalks and others were simply overwhelmed by slush which turned into ice. My Nanospikes have kept me upright and walking through it all. I was worried the spikes would wear down when I walked on clear concrete walks but I’ve seen no sign of wear. I recommend my spikes to everyone I meet when I’m out walking. I’m a huge fan. Thanks for the freedom!
Love the nanospikes! I'm not a runner anymore, so I bought a pair for over my winter boots. I do a lot of walking/hiking with my dogs, regardless of the weather. These made my usual 45 minute walk in the morning possible after last night's freezing rain. I like that they're low profile enough that you don't feel super weird walking over bare pavement. They stay on perfectly, and I don't find them uncomfortable at all-- but again, I am wearing them in a bigger size over heavy winter hiking boots. I can see why they might be uncomfortable if you're just wearing runners. But they're perfect for me!
First of all, nanospikes are great. I use them for both icy run commutes to work in Boston (before the sidewalks are treated) and winter trail running. I don't notice the on my feet and I am able to run normally w/o stopping over icy patches etc. because the traction is great. They also help prevent the risk of injury since I am not constantly changing my running form to avoid slipping. Secondly, I will forever be kahtoola loyal due to their excellent costumer service. I bought my nanospikes about 2 years ago and was upset when my dog chewed through one of them. I emailed them asking if I could pay for a repair (given that obviously a warranty doesn't cover for pets being jerks!) and they said they could send me an old demo that they had lying around in the office. Not 4 days later, my new-to-me (but used) replacement nano-spike arrived. I could not be more impressed. Great company with great products and great customer service.
I bought a pair of these in Iceland while I was on holiday there a couple of years ago. Now. back in the UK, I haven't had the chance to wear them until yesterday - we finally have big snow and I can go run my favourite trail in the snow and ice. The NANOspikes did not disappoint. The first mile is on pavement and was solid ice. I was able to run normally with no slipping, even on steep inclines up and down. When I got to the trail parts and it was more snowy, still no slips. The spikes felt light, and comfortable. I am a happy customer. I would be tempted to try the ExoSpikes for trail use (I don't think they had them a couple of years ago when i bought mine), but the NANOspikes also do a great job.
I have used my Nano Spikes now for two years on our Colorado trails. Love the traction and confidence they give on ice. I have had the same problem as other reviewers that the front strap digs into my toes. I've adjusted and looked at my wife's pair (who does not have this problem) to no avail. My solution has been to take them off and wear them backwards. No more toe problems but still great traction. I would love to give them more stars but my toes won't allow it.
Get The Spikes! I don’t review products, on the internet, ever. But these are sooo good, I really want other people to know about them and use them. Is six stars an option? I live in the Minneapolis area, and for years I have had to curtail running in winter because I can’t find a good, safe place to run. And I HATE treadmills. There is a plowed trail near my house, but it often goes to ice from just a bit of melting. Then, wham, the cold comes. With our consistently cold temps, it stays as ice for weeks. If it snows, they clear it, but the ice remains. The Nanospikes are awesome. I run with confidence - there is no “skittering”. They are lightweight and don’t affect my stride. Yes, there is a touch of pressure across the top of the toes - only a touch - NOT enough to blister - and that toe strap is there to hold the spikes on securely. I stretch that specific strap after I put the spikes on and that helps. I NEVER notice the pressure when actually running, only when I just put them on. I saw the toe pressure comments in the reviews and almost didn’t buy these. Don’t be put off - try them! By the way, they also fit over my hiking boots, so I am now snowblowing my driveway in these, due to an unfortunate ice layer that is fused to the asphalt and which will be with us for another two months. Again, as I maneuver the snowblower, I don’t even realize I have these on - I just have great traction. I find myself telling other runners on the icy trail, “get these spikes”. I wish I knew about them years ago. Consider me a true convert!
Bought them for work purposes, (professional dog walker) as I needed something that would give grip on slippy paths in winter whilst being durable enough to keep on when there is mo snow or ice cover. Other grips I've used in the past wear out quickly once on dry ground. Only thing I don't like, and this is a flaw I find with many ice grips is that they are prone to sliding out of position on the shoe.
