Specific Applications

Verified Buyer Reviewed by 2weelTom from Malta, MT on Monday, December 20, 2010
These were purchased for additional traction to a great boot. I was not completely satisified with this product as one side fell of several times in two hours of use. (I wear a size 13 EEEE and bought the XL size.) It was installed properly, but I discovered that when used on surfaces with very light snow, somehow the product would slide off. This could be due to my gait pattern also.

I then noted these are not made for strictly icy conditions such as walking where water has frozen from snow melt runoff. They do not 'bite' into the ice.

What they are great for is walking on compacted/compressed snow such as crossing streets where traffic has packed the snow.

All in all I give them three stars just because the one side kept falling off and I expected a little better performance on ice.
