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.

Work great for walking on solid ice. They do a much better job than the coils when walking on ice especially when there is a slope. These have been a life saver due to a horrible winter of rain falling on snow turning the roads into large ice sheets. They can be a bit of a struggle to get on, but you want them to fit good and snug. I have a pair of shoes that I just leave these on so I am not having to take them on and off. Well worth the price when compared to slipping on ice and breaking something.

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.

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.
