These Yukon Charlie’s rubber trekking pole boot tips can provide better grip and traction if walking on concrete. You can easily remove them with a quick pull when you need the traction of the bare carbide tip. Rubber walking boots are designed to be used on paved surfaces, and have a longer body to help facilitate a longer push-off each time you swing your arm backward.
A common point of confusion is which direction these oblong tips should be pointing, but wonder no more. As you walk forward, the longer side of these walking stick boots should be facing behind you.
I have a pair of Cabela’s trekking poles and the tips are M10 1.5 threaded tips. Replacements are no longer proved by Cabela, further they do not offer an answer. What size are [ inside diameter ] are the tips? Might they press onto my threaded tips? Or should the whole tip be replaced? If so sizes available? Thanks.

Team Yukon Charlie’s –
Hi Mike…unfortunately, I don’t think our rubber boots are going to be the perfect solution. They are not threaded, and are meant to slip over the end of a carbide tip (standard fixed tip on many trekking poles). In case you’d like to try, the diameter of this particular boot is 3/8″, and we have another rounded boot (looks a little more like the shape you’re trying to replace: https://yukoncharlies.com/product/flat-rubber-trekking-pole-tips/) with a diameter of 7/16″. The rubber gives a little bit, and you’ll want to be sure your pole tip is slightly wider than this diameter for a snug fit. The depth of the channel that the pole slides into for these boots is about 1 1/2″ deep on these “nordic walking tips”, and about 1″ on the rounded ones I’ve linked here for you.
