4.0 out of 5 stars Cradle to grave review ......, 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do sometimes think that Amazon reviewers can be a little quick to post a review; the sort of "I have just open the box and it looks good", but here is my review having just worn out my first pair of these in just over a month of bad weather.

I bought my first pair of these 'overshoe grips' mid-December, just as it started to get icy, to go over my running shoes. I have found them to be great, really confident about running on frost, snow and ice. They are easy to fit and can easily be carried in my rucksack when I don't need them but suspect it may get icy later in a run. They do make my shoes a little heavier and so running in them takes a bit more effort but then it to be expected.

They really do what they are meant to and the only reason I haven't given them a 5 stars is that I may not sure how long I expected them to last. I reckon I have ran in the region of 80 miles on them across varied surfaces, from frosty/ice pavements, to muddy leafy paths and grass verges. They are now just about worn out. But that is running in them. If you buy them for just getting to the car or the shops or walking the dog, then they will obviously last much longer than a month. Don't take this as a criticism though, I am just in the process of ordering another pair, and have recommended them to numerous other people here at work.
