Focused on the Road Ahead

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.

      I run 20+ miles a week. I put these on my Altra Timp trail shoes which are well reimforced shoes for trail running. These are not made for running shoes with a mesh top. The rubber straps press in on your toes and you will give up running after a few paces and go home.

      These work really well to grip the snow and ice compared to other brands of spikes I have tried. They fit almost seamlessly so it feels like you are wearing shoes with built-in spikes, but they provide the flexibility of using them on different pairs of shoes! Sadly, like a previous reviewer said, I too, get sore toes (from the strap labeled FRONT), though I have tried them with several pairs of shoes on several runs.

      Ran 9 miles in these today on the road. (Borrowed my wife's.). We had three inches of snow over ice. I loved them and just bought a pair for myself. They stayed on and added a little weight but not enough to be concerned. I am a believer!

      These are fantastic. I use these for running on icy roads and sidewalks and they are excellent. I am very happy that I did not go with a cheap knockoff but bought these. They are worth every penny. Love these!!!

      These work very well for traction on ice when trail running. My problem is, my toes starst to hurt after about 3 miles. The top of the device presses uncomfortably on the tops of my toes and I end up with sore toes.

      These things are fantastic for walking around any snow/ice. I use them for hiking on low-slope/flat areas, walking the dog, shoveling the driveway, walking almost anywhere that may be icy or hard packed snow. They've never let me down. My company uses them and issues them for Personal Protective Equipment to help keep our employees from falling at work (construction).

      Surprised I am the first one to review these. Nanospikes work great. I am a trail runner and hiker in Colorado and the Nanos have not let me down (no pun intended), yet. They are very easy to put on and take off. I don't feel like I'm running on clunky spikes or tearing up the trails in these. Plus they are $20 less than Micros. Will definitely buy again.
