These work great, including on ice. Be careful while on super smooth concrete such as some garage floors.

YakTrax make walking on ice and packed snow easy. Great for icy parking lots. They slip on easily. Who wants to fall? Not me, that's why I wear YakTrax. Also, can't beat Zappos service. I ordered these on a Thursday afternoon and had them Friday afternoon. Fabulous!

The YakTrax Walk are awesome! We had 16 inches of snow and freezing rain and I was able to get around without falling! Zappos provided excellent and fast service!

I have had the YakTrax Yaktrax Run for about two weeks now and am not happy with them. If you are walking on sidewalks and crossing city streets they probably work well. I have a farm so I am going through snow and walking in semi muddy places. This tends to fill in around the cleats in front. The back where the spirals are works well and stays fairly clean. But I have slipped with this pair on and it was where the cleats are. On closer examination the cleats were either broken off or wearing down so fast you could barely see where they were and you could not feel the cleats anymore. The strap on top helped keep these on better but I still lost the one on my right foot twice now. I am going to look into a different brand and style for barn/stable/farm use. They just did not hold up as expected or do the job I needed. I do not want to run this style down but if you work out doors and not in the city or town I do not recommend these.

I am a four season trail runner. These work great for the in between weather run. When there's not enough snow for snowshoe runners but to icy and slushy for my trail running shoes alone. Easy on and off which is important when it's cold out. I am giving them a 5 star for performance. Not sure about durability only used them 3 times. For cost getting a season or two out of them would be acceptable. I actually bought them through Zappos b/c of their great return policy.

These are truly amazing! My mom introduced me to them when I went to undergrad in upstate New York. I would not have made it through the icy winters without them. I continue to buy a new pair every year or two -- I have kneecaps that dislocate so ice gives me a fright, but they provide the traction and stability I need so I can walk across the icy ground with confidence.

I would never want to be without YakTrax. We don't get a lot of snow in North Carolina but when we do, it often falls as ice and going to the mailbox could land you in the hospital. I don't understand people who don't invest $20 to potentially save thousands, plus the pain and inconvenience. However, always go up a size. I have women's size 6.5 feet and in winter boots I can use the Medium YakTrax but prefer to use my husband's Large. If they are too big you just pull them further over the top of the shoe. The rubber is thicker too. I just bought Medium for a friend who has bigger feet than me (not wanting to insult her) but I am returning them and getting large instead.

Great devices for much safer walking on snow and ice! I walk a mile to work on Pittsburgh sidewalks in the winter, which are challenging: some treacherous sidewalks of slippery ice and snow doom, and others (often direct neighbors) completely shoveled and salted sidewalks free of any snow and ice. Without the devices, it's a really dangerous and scary walk. I have slipped and fallen, and I see quite a few other walkers just walk in the middle of the street because sidewalks are so slippery with snow. However, with these awesome YakTrax, I love walking on the snow and ice, and I feel secure without fear of falls. The only unfortunate thing is that those previously-wonderful stretches of sidewalk that nice neighbors shoveled well, end up being hard on the YakTrax since the metal gets stressed from stepping directly on the sidewalk. Last winter I went through 2 pairs (the metal eventually breaks, and so does the rubber), but it was so worth it, and I'm going to buy 2 more pairs for walk-commuting next winter. (Hey, way cheaper than buying gas, car, and insurance!)

Total disappointment. These were excellent for a week or two. But after less than one month, they have completely fallen apart. Not only has the wire pulled and uncoiled, but also the actual rubber straps have ripped. We have had a terrible winter, of course, but these are meant for ice and snow, and I expected them to last at least a couple of years - but not even one month? One of them got so bad it actually fell off in the park and I lost it! There are alternatives, such as Stabilicers. Choose something else over these, and get the ones with the strap over the arch, too. Skip these. Trust me.

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.

I wear a women's 9 and bought the Medium. Size is perfect on boots. Very comfortable to walk with in the snow and ice. These work best on hard packed snow or snow covered ice. Be very careful on exposed ice because it is just as slick, if not more so with the metal coils. I still need to watch the pavement and avoid sheets of ice.

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.

Yes, the Yaktrax are helpful in ice, & we get plenty in Central PA. Be sure you stretch them to get them on tightly enough. One of mine came off, but I retrieved it. I am a woman with a size 7 medium width foot.

These are great on the ice and snow. Do not wear them on no icy surfaces. But great. Saved my butt numerous times!

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.

Zappos is great. Received these in less than 24 hours. Great price. And these things made walking safely through my snowy, icy neighborhood possible all last winter. Love these things!

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.
