Rated 5 out of 5 by RunnerInMinnesota Great for Walking & Running in Snow
I used these today for the first time so I can't attest to their durability, but my initial impression is very positive. I ran 5 miles in light snow, plus did warm-up and cool-down walks. They were easy to put on and felt very secure on my shoes. I have a women's size 8 running shoe and the Small fit perfectly. I ran on a combination of loose snow, greasy snow and packed ice and my footing was very secure on all surfaces. I was on city streets, but we've had quite a bit of snow so there were no exposed surfaces (just ice and snow).

Rated 4 out of 5 by michmom50 Great on the ice and snow
Just tested my Yaktrax and they do just great on the ice and snow. I got them to wear on my old Air Force issue mukluks which are rather bulky so I probably should have ordered a size up, but other than that they are perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ludwig Broke first time used
I bought these two days ago. I took a 3 mile hike in them and was pleased with how they gripped the ice. However, halfway into the walk I noticed that something was wrong. One of the rubber bands that thread through the wire on the bottom of the shoes had broken and the wire was hanging loose. I hike 3-4 miles everyday and I recognized that this product would never hold up...it didn't even last a day. So I returned them and am looking to find a more rugged product. I gave it two stars only because they did grip the ice just fine before they broke.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HikingGirl Try them on the boots before you buy them!
I got these over micro spikes because I figured I could wear them driving without worrying I would damage anything. I wore them around for an hour before they started coming off my boots! I thought I just bought a size too large so I gave them to my friend and he tried them only to say they slipped off his boots too! We both wear muck boots so maybe they would hold better to other shoes?Long story short, try them on with the boots you will be wearing them on and walk around to make sure they don't do the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lori great for traction.
I am very pleased with the yaktrax. They were a bit pricey but over all a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jshtww Yaktrax Are Great!
Got these before a semi-snowy/icy climb up Manitou Incline. I didn't originally put them on, because we wanted to see how the climb went. After about 5min of worrying about my footing, I put my new Yaktrax on. The rest of the climb went very smoothly. They have great traction in the snow, and a bit in the ice. I don't recommend them if you're going over a lot of rocks or smooth wood, though. They felt like they didn't give as much traction over those materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishing11 Quality Product
Best thing I have found to walk on the ice. They provide great traction up hill or down hill with no slipping. Great quality in material.

Perfect, holds fast to the snow packed and icey roads I have to walk daily with two dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indonesia1 Yes for Yaktrax
Yaktrax are the ultimate in protection against slipping, falling and resulting injury during ice and snow street conditions. Dick's offers a great product and a reasonable price.

great grip, no sliding in snow or bare ice, I use ice fishing because old kind I used had nothing for your heel.
