Want the traction benefits of metal screws without actually drilling them into your shoes’ soles? SPORTRunners Ice Cleats do just that, offering reliable bite into ice and snow with nine metal screws set into the forefoot and heel of each overlay. The overlays are a combination of rubber on top to keep a close fit and dual-density thermoplastic underfoot to withstand rugged use. A Velcro “Powder Strap” keeps them secure on aggressive runs. The cleats are somewhat susceptible to falling out, but are easy to replace.
