5.0 out of 5 stars They come up LARGE, 24 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yaktrax Pro Traction Winter Traction Device (Shoes)
Just a word of warning about the sizing of these, having received a pair today.

They are advertised by the seller here as being Small, Medium, and so on, which is way too vague to be of much help. I'm a ladies' (UK) size 6, and guessed Large might be about right given that I'd want to put them on over chunky boots, and didn't want to have to fight to stretch them on. Turns out I should have ordered Small. Yes, SMALL! The ones I've received are way too big for me, even when worn with beefy size 7 hiking boots.

Here's the sizing info off the actual carton, so you don't make the same annoying and costly mistake I did. For clarity, I've converted them to UK sizes here.

SMALL
Men: 4.5 - 8 (UK)
Women: 4 - 7.5 (UK)

MEDIUM
Men: 8.5 - 10.5 (UK)
Women: 8 - 10 (UK)

LARGE
Men: 11 - 13 (UK)
Women: 10.5 - 12.5 (UK)

EXTRA LARGE
Men: 13.5+ (UK)
Women: 13+ (UK)

The XL size has been made for a yeti, surely?

Clearly I'll not be using the pair I've received due to their extreme size, so I can't tell you whether they work on ice and snow, but they look to be well-made and quite stretchy. Certainly I'd consider getting another pair in Small. If I do, I'll report back on their effectiveness.

You're welcome, Tracey. I've sent my large pair back for exchange but, as I write, the small size is now out of stock. Perhaps my review was too persuasive!

Hi thanks for the size chart helped a lot
if you can not get them hear try Trespass they are selling them, but only the regular sort not the pro version. I had some with spikes on and they where fantastic they broke last winter and i can not get any more so it will be interesting to see how these go

Thank you for this very useful info I would have made the same costly mistake as you..Feet dont come in small,med,larg so why not use the proper size..
I am a size 6 1/2 so the small will be fine for me.

The sizing is a bit clearer if you go on the yaktrax website and check which you need. I believe they also do an XS for children.

Check onto the YAKTRAX Web and look at the size menu...

They also give a circumference measurement. I think it helps match circumference of boot to circumference of yaktrax!

Hope this helps... thank you for your help.
