Kahtoola MICROspikes

You don't have to worry about ole Joanna slipping anymore, now I'm footed with some new Kahtoola MicroSpikes.


Here's my KEEN boots.

They cost more than I'd preferred but they dig in and keep this big girl upright.

I want some of those!!! I saw spikes for shoes/boots a couple of years ago at Walmart but didn't get them. We could use them all over around here, but especially going up the cabin road. Right now, it's cleared off, but sometimes....

You're one spiffy farm mama!

I would like to have some of those too! They would be great to wear when the deck is icy or wet and slippery. Staying upright is important!

Great move! I didn't know those were out there.

Hello Joanna, Just caught up on two post and my sister was here and she loved your post and video's. You are precious, the little laugh after pointing the video camera on your pajama pants was so cute. Thank you again for sharing the videos as you are a ray of sunshine into our lives.

Those are cool! If my son saw those he would want them just because they look cool,we don't even get snow!

I am glad you got them even if they were costly,those videos of you sliding down on the ice made everyone worry !

I'm sooo glad you got the spikes. They look much like the YakTraks I told you about. The less expensive "grippers" work fairly well, but definitely won't last as long as yours. Now the only thing you need to do is not run the camera while you are sliding down your driveway!
Be careful, my friend.

Those look great! And are they really that easy to put on? Now we need a video of your "test walk"!!!

Hah! Those are great. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond today, to get one thing. Came home with four things, which isn't uncommon when I hit that store.

One of the things that I bought was a set of those spikes. Not the same brand, but the same idea. And, when I saw them, the first thing I thought was those were the things that Joanna bought and that I really should have a pair also.

Lordy. You are totally ON it! Those are serious. Don't look too cumbersome either. And you made me want new boots. LOL

Wow! Those are way cool and simple to put on, too. They remind me of crampons....the spikes that ice climbers wear on their feet.

Bummer about the cost, but if they save a trip to the hospital, then they are worth it!

Now I can sleep a little better not worrying so much about you breaking a hip. gah!
