Frequently Asked Questions

1. Will the metal used for mechanism and spikes rust?

All metals used are 303 Stainless Steel, so 100% no rust.

2. What happens if a spike needs to be replaced?

Spikes are replaceable with the spike tool provided; the spike tool must be used when replacing spikes, as it is a torque wrench.

3. Why are there no spikes in the forefoot?

7. Do any of the Kickspike boots feature a steel toe?

Kickspike boots are not designed with steel toes. However, they are designed using ASTM certified composite safety toes. Kickspike boots feature toes made made from composite materials instead of steel, due to the benefits composites provide in comparison:

Composite material is:

-Lighter than steel, better electrical resistance (when exposed) and better insulation in colder climates.

9. Will the button on the back break off after numerous clicks on/off?

The plastics used are of the highest quality. We’ve chosen 20% glass filled nylon Delrin 3000; it is the same plastics NASA used for the space shuttles tools.

10. When the spikes are deployed on hard surfaces such as concrete, steel flooring etc. boots are very unstable?

Yes, boots are specifically made to have spikes deployed on ice & snow, just like other traction devices, wearing them on these surfaces is NOT RECOMMENED! Simply click them off before walking on these types of surfaces.
