Thank you for your feedback.
I can rate this with 4 stars as it is a great product that provides stability on snowy and icy surfaces.
He is not heavy enough for them to press into really hard ice so can skid on sheet ice.
These are excellent, I purchased 3 sets in total.

Just a word of warning about the sizing of these, having received a pair today.

They are advertised by the seller here as being Small, Medium, and so on, which is way too vague to be of much help. I'm a ladies' (UK) size 6, and guessed Large might be about right given that I'd want to put them on over chunky boots, and didn't want to have to fight to stretch them on. Turns out I should have ordered Small. Yes, SMALL! The ones I've received are way too big for me, even when worn with beefy size 7 hiking boots.

Here's the sizing info off the actual carton, so you don't make the same annoying and costly mistake I did. For clarity, I've converted them to UK sizes here.

SMALL
Men: 4.5 - 8 (UK)
Women: 4 - 7.5 (UK)

MEDIUM
Men: 8.5 - 10.5 (UK)
Women: 8 - 10 (UK)

LARGE
Men: 11 - 13 (UK)
Women: 10.5 - 12.5 (UK)

EXTRA LARGE
Men: 13.5+ (UK)
Women: 13+ (UK)

The XL size has been made for a yeti, surely?

Clearly I'll not be using the pair I've received due to their extreme size, so I can't tell you whether they work on ice and snow, but they look to be well-made and quite stretchy. Certainly I'd consider getting another pair in Small. If I do, I'll report back on their effectiveness.

I live on a road which is an East-West hill joining two North South hills, so whichever way I go there are cambers and ups and downs to negotiate. Last winter, buses couldn't get closer than 10 minutes (on a normal day) walk away.

This year, with the rosehips reaching a massive size by late summer my folkie tales heralded it would be a hard winter. So I ordered these in September, and they have just had their first outing today on the slippy, slushy street, with snow already becoming packed and a little icy

Oh the bliss of being able to walk at normal, fast pace, without clutching lampposts/hedges/stray pedestrians.

These are stunningly fit for purpose - though initially the sensation of a slight sideways roll (because you are no longer have your foot completely flat on the floor, but are on rolled sprung tubes) is odd.

Two warnings - the first, MOST helpfully provided by the first spotlighted reviewer is that sizings are ODD to say the least. Be aware that if you shoe-size is below a European 42.5 apparently. 7 1/2 (rather than the normal 8 1/2) you will need SMALL. And as they start at European 38 (5) that leaves anyone with petite and dainty feet still slipping around.

Clearly those Americans have big feet!

Secondly, they are quite a struggle to fit onto your shoes - particularly to chunky walking boots which are surely the best footwear if the pavements are snow packed. They are extremely hard/tight to stretch over - making you feel you clearly have bought the wrong size and should have had a larger. When done though, its obvious that the eyewateringly tight fit IS what makes it work.

Last year I could bearly walk up the woodland path to walk the dog - this year I can stride out with confidence. In fact, it is only when I see the difficulty other walkers are having that I realise how teacherous it is underfoot. I let the price put me off last year, but a couple of heavy falls made me reconsider.

Last year there was a period of around three straight months where I couldn't walk out of my door without stepping onto a sheet of solid ice. It got so bad that I had to make a pact with some friends that when one of us inevitably fell flat on our back in the middle of the street, instead of leaping back to our feet and pretending it hadn't happened, we had to lie on the floor, wave our arms about and shout "Help me! I'm spinning!"

Determined not to be caught out this year I purchased this product on the recommendation of a friend, ready for all that Winter could throw at me.

These grips are easy to fit to my shoes (unlike some awful elasticated spikey things that I used to own, which shot off my boot one evening and impaled themselves onto my kitchen door). As a bonus, these have a securing strap that goes across the top of the foot.

Most importantly, the thing that impresses me most is their effect on the weather - since buying these I haven't seen one single trace of snow or ice. Last year I couldn't walk five paces without getting covered from head to foot with snow. Every morning I arrived at work looking like the abominable snow man. This year...nothing.

I'm utterly convinced that my purchase of these Yaktrax has caused a radical shift in the weather patterns of the North West of England. Based on the evidence to hand, in October of 2014 I'm going to buy myself some wellington boots or perhaps a snorkel and some flippers in an attempt to make the Winter of 2014-2015 the driest since records began.

These are brilliant, I can't rate them highly enough. I've broken two wrists and a knee in the past and have a serious phobia of falling as a result. However I have just walked about a mile and a half on seriously icy pavements without once feeling that I was in any danger of slipping. Even managed to hold my daughter up when she fell, I'm convinced that without these I would have gone over and broken something as well! I didn't need to have the straps on, they stay on well enough without, but I suppose if I was actually needing to run the straps would give a bit of extra security.

Not only is the product fantastic, but I ordered them on Tuesday evening and received them Wednesday lunchtime - great service Amazon, and free delivery too!

Twenty quid is nothing compared to the pain and inconvenience of a broken wrist, we've ordered pairs for family members as well and I've recommended them to no end of people.
