Kahtoola Microspikes - Black




Microspikes are designed to fit onto any style of footwear to provide security and grip on icy and snowy ground. If you are a trail runner or regular hiker you'll probably never need a full on technical crampon, but there will be times when you need some extra grip when you encounter snow and ice. Microspikes are the answer, they will fit onto virtually any type of footwear, need no tools or adjustment and the spikes and chains adjust to grip nearly any surface — from ice and packed snow to wet rocks, concrete, wet grass and scree.

The original Kahtoola Microspike was always the best performing and easiest to fit Microspike available; and now they've gone and made it better! They have been beefed up with full stainless steel metal components, fully welded chains, a lower profile and lighter weight elastomer harness with reinforced eyelets and an improved integrated toe bale that keeps them secure over the front of your shoes/boots.

When they are not required they can be whipped off quickly and stored in stuff sack that is supplied with them.

  • Lighter weight elastomer harness
  • Welded stainless steel components
  • Improved toe bale
  • Reinforced elastomer eyelets
  • Supplied with stuff sack
  • Easy to fit and remove
  • Stretch fit, please see sizing chart for a guide but always try on footwear before use.

  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Tim Blom, on 12/03/2024

    Light to carry. Easy and quick to put on Makes a huge difference when walking over crushed icy snow. Gave me great confidence that my foot will stay where I put it and not slide away. Highly recommended
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Dave, on 03/02/2024

    Used on a particularly icy day and these mini crampons were fantastic. Felt like spider man 😂 Young man in the shop was brilliant also. Cheers
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Mary Doherty, on 26/12/2022

    I have just bought Kahtoola Microspikes to supplement mu Yaktrax as I found I could still slip a little with them on. I am only talking about icy pavements and small hills not hills of Munro height. I havent used them yet but have friends who swear by them and use them on the cobbler instead of crampons. I look forward to wearing them, they are a bit tight to put on but hopefully this will save them from falling off
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Sam , on 21/02/2022

    Micro spikes seem good quality, quite expensive for what they are. Friendly service from shop and informative
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Malcolm Busby, on 20/02/2021

    Excellent on ice & frozen snow but have a tendency to ball up quickly when moving from ice/frozen snow to softer snow. Not as easy "To de-ball" as mountain crampons as the chains structure holds the ice balls securely.
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Morag Kelly, on 11/02/2021

    Perfect for the icy snow when out and about. Really quick delivery too.
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Sally, on 17/01/2021

    First time Ive had and worn spikes. Used on a 9mile walk on compacted snow, ice and soft snow. Brilliant on compacted snow and ice, which is what they are intended for. Walking through soft snow I accumulated ice balls on the chains making walking in snow harder than without them. They are not easy to put on or take off so I didnt try removing them for the soft snow section of my walk, just had to keep knocking off the ice balls with my walking poles. I was also a little concerned they might come off at the back whilst walking so I did periodically stop to try to pull them up a bit more, also not easy with gloves on or with cold hands. My boots are a ladies size UK8/EU42 and a medium fits pretty snuggly. They seem to be well made which you would expect for the price. Subject to the above limitations I am very pleased with them.
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Ann, on 16/01/2021

    Bought these because the recent hard freeze meant we could hardly get out of our garden. These have allowed us to continue walking, even on hard frozen ground. They feel well made and sturdy.
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Steve, on 27/12/2017

    Used these on Striding Edge in full winter conditions. They were excellent and probably better than crampons for mixed ground. The medium size fits a 42 boot securely and does not come off even on quite steep slopes. Much more comfortable to walk on compared with crampons and winter boots. Obviously you cannot front point but for general winter hill walks they save buying 3 season boots.
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Andy, on 25/12/2017

    Bought these to upgrade from some walking chains which I’d had for many years and I am not disappointed. The spikes give very reassuring grip on compacted snow or ice. Easy to fit, wear and remove when you’re finished with them but take time to make sure you get a correct fit as I found the size guide a little misleading. They don’t replace crampons but, if you need a bit of reassurance when walking in wintry conditions at lower levels, these are a sensible addition to your daysack at a price that won’t break the bank. Brilliant service from the Ambleside store too...
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Andy, on 24/12/2017

    Bought these as an upgrade from some chains I had and these have given an amazing amount of extra grip on compacted snow or ice. Very easy to both fit and remove. Take time to get the correct size though. They don’t replace crampons but are certainly a useful addition to your daysack when walking in winter conditions at lower levels. Brilliant service from the Ambleside store too.
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Gemma Wragg, on 21/12/2017

    Great little product. Very light and compact. Reasonably priced. Very easy to use. Works well on compacted snow and ice.Would recommend but note they do not replace crampons but provide an alternative in less intensive conditions. Very happy with my purchase. First time using this site and would use again. Very quick delivery
  • Kahtoola Microspikes - Black review by Julie, on 28/11/2017

    I use these spikes on a sloping field where I keep my 3 little rescue ponies. They eat the grass down to mud so when its wet it turns into a ski slope. With the spikes on my wellies I can finally stay upright when Im pushing a wheelbarrow around picking up their poo!
