AWESOME addition to my gear!! :)


I do a LOT of mountain hiking all year long, and I absolutely LOVE these!! They are hands down better than any other traction devices I've used in the past. Awesome grip on icy and snow-packed mountain trails, including steep terrain. Aggressive enough, without being too aggressive. Simple on and off. Stays in place well. Compact and lightweight to have available in my pack anytime I think I might want them.


Nothing to dislike. Only wish I had gotten them sooner! :)

Great traction, light, and tough


I discovered Enwild while shopping for a replacement for the Kahtoola Microspikes I had lost. Microspikes provide such secure footing, and they're durable. Enwild's pricing is attractive, shipping is fast, and service is top-notch! I'm a happy new customer.


None. I regret losing my earlier pair of Microspikes but the silver lining to that is finding Enwild's great pricing, shipping, and service!

Easy on and easier off, these spikes give 100% sure footing in everything from mud to snowpack to solid ice. They are light and tough; No bent spikes or broken chains.


Can feel 'lumpy' when used with lower quality boots with softer soles.



Winter weather necessity


They friggin rule. I had plenty of traction through all kinds of snow and ice on top of dirt and rocks while hiking through the mountains. A friend who went without was sliding all over the place.

None yet.

Great Micro Spikes for Slippery Conditions


These are well made and easy to take on and take off. The tote keeps things clean after you've removed them.

Great traction, fit well on most boots


Great traction. You immediately notice a difference without noticing you are wearing these while walking. Glad to have them with us in the Rockies. We did not sharpen the blades.


They get loose pretty quickly. Snow has packed under them. My insulated winter boot for snowshoeing despite having areas to grip on to does not work well with these and I have to re-seat them every 15 minutes. On my less insulated boots, they sit more easily but also comes loose quickly. Neither is a deal breaker. There are not many aalternatives. I simply expected a better fit and on four different boots, they never sit securely enough for my taste.



The Best!


fit, long-lasting/sturdy, really bite into ice, compact/packable

Essential Winter Hiking Accessory


I had a chance to discover the essential utility of microspikes on a hike this year. Our winter was unusually mild, so the mountain trails were melted off in many areas making snowshoeing not possible. Wanting to get out anyway, I headed up in hiking shoes and brought along my Kahtoolas in the pack. As I progressed up the mountain, trail conditions varied between dry, muddy, patchy snow and ice. Once I hit the first bad section of trail I attached the Kahtoolas, and suddenly my ordinary hiking shoes became all-terrain demons. They were absolutely fantastic at totally conquering any conditions I encountered on the trail that day. I am a die-hard convert! The Kahtoola's design is super rugged and makes attachment and removal super simple for almost any shoe or boot. They stay put when attached better than I expected, and when removed they easily collapse to a minimal profile for storage in my pack (the included storage bag is a plus for that). I found the sizing to be true according to Kahtoola's sizing guide for both my shoes and my wife's. I was concerned the full spikes might be too aggressive given some of the other designs I have seen, like the Yaktrax, that provide more of a traction chain design. But after using the Kahtoolas I have no regrets whatsoever about going for full spikes. The traction is amazing, and I never feel like I'm walking suspended on spikes or cleats. Highly recommended!

Good product


I've used these several times now on both straight ice and a mix of hard pack and loose powder while climbing. They do fantastic on everything except when you really need to dig in.


I was hoping for a little more "stick" in less than ideal conditions, but it's really not that big of a complaint.

Fits both my boots and trail-runners well. Strong. Added traction. Wish I had last year in CO.

The really work well


These are a spare pair, I have used them for years, and they work really well. The new pair should work as well as the old ones.
