These really do work well! I was surprised, but the reviews were good so I took the chance. When I wear these on my running shoes I actually seek out the slippery ice and snow for the satisfaction of having better grip. Their efficacy on new non-packed snow is basically neutral, but where they really do come in handy is on a snowy path regularly trodden by other runners, walkers, and cross country skiers.

Bought a pair for my husband. He walks for a living. They broke on the second day. I called and customer service was awesome. I was given another pair and the charge can off my credit card. Sorry to say the second pair broke in 1 day.

I'd only worn these a few times when the metal spring twisted it's way off the rubber. Then the metal spring broke. Then one of the rubber pieces pulled apart. I'm very disappointed in the quality/durability of these and will be asking for a refund. I've owned several pairs of YakTrax, and eventually this happens, but it's usually after a year, not a couple of weeks. I'm wondering if they changed suppliers for manufacture.

Not suitable for hiking. YakTrax are Ok for very specific situations, but they are delicate. The YakTrax warranty page says "Yaktrax is not for use on gravel, concrete or sanded roads cleared of snow" and they mean it. I used these for daily walks on snow and ice covered improved trails. They lasted less than 20km before breaking. If you are using these for short trips over tame surfaces they will be fine. For any terrain more difficult than a parking lot I would strongly recommend Kahtoola Microspikes.

I like these! The coils are beveled and grip well on steep trails and provide stability on icy sidewalks. I appreciate the strap. I had a pair of the walkers and one fell off while I was walking and is lost.

I have a long hilly driveway in the woods so it gets covered in snow which always ends up icy and treacherous. I also like to walk so that means walking on this driveway several times a day. The YakTrax made the trip a bit less scary. I would then do my two mile walk with the YakTrax on my boots and it was easy to walk at my normal pace. I also bought a pair for my husband and he was impressed with how he was able to snowblow on the icy hill without falling.

These work very well to provide traction on ice and snow on our sloped driveway when going out to get the paper or the mail. They are a bit hard to put on boots, and need to have the size marked on them. We have several pairs and it is hard to figure out which pair is what size.

I walk dogs five days a week and needed something for winter traction. The Pro version is supposed to work on snow and ice, but I wouldn't trust them on ice-only surfaces. I did get a sense of safety when using them. Unfortunately the rubber and Velcro straps started breaking almost right away, and they lasted me all of seven weeks before they broke so much I couldn't use them any longer.

YakTrax keep me from slipping and the pro foot holder over the top keeps me from finding my ice walkers in the yard and driveway after the snow melts. They aren't super heavy duty, but for this east coast winter, they have done the trick!

Living in northern Wisconsin, the Yaktrax Pro are a must for walking the dog. I'm getting too old to take a fall on the ice every year. With these I can walk at my regular pace with the peace of mind that I am going to stay upright. They are an excellent winter accessory.

I have run with my YakTrax Run in light snow and ice on paved roads three times. They are lightweight and fit on my regular running shoes very well. I'm particularly pleased with how comfortable they are -- I hardly notice they are there except for the great grip they provide.

I've not used Yaktrax Run or any similar product before but this was the perfect winter for them. The Yaktrax Run fit snugly on my trail-running shoes and have provided excellent traction on packed, slippery snow. I've really appreciated them. This is their first season, so I can't say how they'll hold up over time.

I purchased the Yaktrak Pro due to the never ending polar vortex we're experiencing in Cincinnati this year. They're a lifesaver! They were a little tough to get them on my shoes the first time, but have been on my feet daily due to all of the snow and ice. They've helped me trek on the downtown city streets to my neighborhood sidewalks with ease. I highly recommend for winter weather. Note as the box states only wear them outside in winter weather, I made the mistake of walking in a grocery store one night & practically slipped and fell over due to the metal hitting the clean shiny floor.

I bought these for my husband. We live in Michigan and it is very snowy and icy. He loves them. He will be buying me a pair. He hasn't had a chance to run in them yet, but overall is very pleased.

I've found them indispensable in the North Country of New York State. We've had an ice storm already this year, which is why I initially purchased them. But we've received several feet of snow as well as some thawing, creating lots of ice throughout. Except when snow-shoeing, I've left them continuously attached to my snow boots for added traction on unseen ice while snow-blowing and shoveling. Though the recommended size for me was a medium (Men's 11R), I opted for the large size since I was putting them over snow boots. I've noticed no issues, and am satisfied.

These keep my daughter on her feet at work. No more "graceful" falls to alert oncoming traffic that there is ice.

Buy them. Easy on/off. Make 100% difference on any shoes. Not for high heels but otherwise great. Traction on ice. Chains for your feet. And they're cheap.

YakTrax work great. I have a steep driveway and I could not stand on it in snowy/icy conditions with normal shoes even with good treads. I would slide to the bottom. With YakTrax I can shovel snow or use the snow blower and never slip on the driveway. I wear a 13 narrow shoe and the large size YakTrax conforms nicely to my boot. They are easy to attach. Just follow the instructions.

Be careful in mixed conditions. These feel great and provide good traction in snow and ice. However, on a run with mixed snow/ice and exposed pavement some of the plastic spokes that hold the steel cleats in place broke off. They're still functional but now I see they're more delicate than they appear.

I have both the walker and the pro. I find that I use the pro more often. As mentioned, go up a size. Both are terrific but I like the strap on the pro when in deeper snow. I am size 9 or 9½ boot and bought the medium in both types.
