Kahtoola, renowned for pioneering top-notch footwear traction, has introduced a revamped version of its acclaimed NANOspikes, offering enhanced safety for navigating frozen roads and sidewalks.
The ultra-low profile winter essential, trusted for nearly a decade in icy conditions, now boasts improvements in comfort, fit, and traction for the fall of 2023.
Kahtoola’s Redesigned NANOspikes
Designed specifically for walking and running on slick frozen surfaces, NANOspikes ensure a high-performance grip without compromising foot strike.
The updated version accommodates a wide range of shoe styles and sizes, with an improved fit from US Women’s 5 to US Men’s 15, featuring a larger heel tab for easy on and off.
Ideal for both winter workouts and holiday travel, the NANOspikes conveniently pack into a tote pouch, effortlessly slipping over various shoes to prevent slips and falls in unfamiliar terrains.
With ten concave tungsten carbide spikes per foot and an updated traction plate, these spikes provide instant traction on ice, deflecting uneven surfaces for a safer outdoor experience.
Danny Giovale, the founder of Kahtoola, emphasized the importance of intentional design based on community and athlete feedback, ensuring the NANOspikes remain the go-to choice for runners seeking reliable, low-profile traction on challenging winter surfaces.
The redesigned NANOspikes are available nationwide at an MSRP of $54.95.
