We've used Icespikes for three years in northern Maine. We dedicated a couple of pair of older hiking boots to them. They provide excellent traction. We walk our dog every day on a dirt road and we haven't fallen once. They're very durable and we get more than a year out of them. Many of the grippers that attach to your boot either shift or fall off. These don't, and they're much sharper than most. These can be a life saver. Take it from someone who went down knocking themselves out and splitting the back of their head open. Be prepared to put runners down on any surface where you walk that you don't want to damage.

These ice spikes were a prefect fit for my hiking boots. I bought them after falling and injuring my back and head. Prices was fair, delivery was great and they were easy to apply to my boots.
Installed and ready to go

Received and installed easily with electric drill. Ice melted and have not been able to run with them yet on ice and compacted snow. Appear to be good quality as advertised.
ProsEasy to install
ConsDon't see any
As good as I hoped they would be

They arrived about a week ago and I fitted 8 on each walking shoe. There was enough ice along the way to test them out, excellent grip on any surface. However, the last day of January brought freezing rain. Every side road was a skating rink. So, this would be the ultimate test. As it turned out, I felt totally safe walking on that glazed surface. Yes, I had to shorten my stride a bit to put weight on the shoe but they never slipped. Really important when two dogs are pulling you along. As promised, the spikes are made of very good steel and properly treated. After over a week of walking they have not worn down.
ProsJust to have the confidence that this older bones are safe from slipping and breaking on ice is awesome.
ConsOne really has to keep the spiked shoes as dedicated ice shoes. Have another pair for regular use or use old shoes for the spikes.
Better than expected

Consdoesnt really work to take them in and out of the shoes. once you screw them in you should just leave them there
