Kahtoola Doubles Down on Climate Change with New Forest Green MICROspikes®

January 26, 2023

Flagstaff, Ariz. (Jan. 26, 2023) – Kahtoola is excited to announce a new Forest Green edition of its legendary MICROspikes® footwear traction designed to keep you safely outside hiking in snowy, icy and muddy conditions. For every Forest Green pair sold, Kahtoola will donate 2% of sales to the 1% for the Planet® Impact Fund at National Philanthropic Trust, doubling the company’s commitment to fight climate change.

“Our goal is to create products that make outdoor adventures more accessible and rewarding, and underlying that is the responsibility we have as a company to address the climate crisis to the best of our ability by minimizing our environmental impact,” said Danny Giovale, owner and founder of Kahtoola. “This product-specific initiative is one important way we can increase our efforts by doubling our usual 1% for the Planet commitment to support the efforts of this proven environmental organization.”

For over a decade, arctic explorers, weekend adventurers and everyday hikers have chosen MICROspikes traction to safely explore outside in wintry conditions. Twelve stainless steel spikes per foot bite into even the most stubborn ice and snow, providing the wearer a stable walking platform. A durable, ergonomically shaped harness features a raised heel tab to easily pull over shoes and boots while retaining its elasticity down to -22°F. Lightweight and packable, Kahtoola MICROspikes allow users to safely navigate mountainous terrain.
