Rated 5 out of 5áby jimmyyumcakes They were comfortable, easy to put on.
After having tried several items of this nature, these truly are the best that I have purchased. I would/will recommend these to anyone who is looking for this type of item.

Rated 2 out of 5áby LoveNature15 Works great but too small
I wear a size 10 women's shoe so I purchased a small in this item per the sizing chart. However, it was a very snug fit on the heel of my tennis shoes. I was able to run no problem but about halfway through I started getting really bad blisters due to it being so tight so I had to take them off. Also, I cannot fit these on my snow boots at all! I need a pair that can fit my tennis shoes and snow boots. I am sending these back.
They did work great on the ice though. I was able to run 1.5 miles on a dirt road that rarely gets plowed or salted without ever feeling like I was going to slip. The sizing is just really off.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BeanLover4Ever Worth Every Cent
I live in Alaska and hike 3 times a week regardless of conditions or season. The trails in the winter are often treacherous; I've taken some nasty falls over the years. I have purchased various over-the-shoe or boot ice grippers locally in the past. In each case, one of three things happened:
1. The "spikes" wore down or ripped off
2. The rubber became so stretched out that I couldn't switch from boot to shoe
3. I lost the item while hiking (it fell off my boot without my noticing).
LLBean to the rescue! I bought a pair of these several years ago. They fit every shoe or boot because the velcro straps are totally adjustable. The studs are sturdy, metal and thick (not at all flimsy). You will not fall; you cannot lose these; you will not wear them out. Simply put: They are the BEST ice grippers you can buy.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Erotti123 Excellent Stabilicers
Last year on January 10th, I fell on black ice and suffered a concussion. I vowed that I would provide extra protection for myself this year. I am unable to use the "stretch over your boot" types because I have arthritis in both hands. Then I discovered the Stabilicers and thought I would give them a try. They are so easy to put over boots and hikers because of the Velcro straps so I am able to switch them effortlessly from shoe to boot. They are very comfortable to wear and are great on ice and snow. I love them and would highly recommend them to anyone. Excellent, well made product. You aced it again LLbean.

Well made.. ...Bought for husband for hiking and he said they were too heavy for long hikes . Okay for short periods of time. He liked the way they fit and the velcro helps keep them in place. Had to send back, only because he felt they were too heavy for his needs....I bought him a large for his boot that is a size 10 wide. He had no problem putting them on the boot.

My trekking pole skittered along on my street, my LL BEAN, ICE STABILIZERS marched right along, with not even a hint of a slip, so I tell everyone, from my experience trying the other brands, this IS THE ONE THAT WILL PREVENT A FALL, sure it is double the price of the other brands, but take my word for it, THEY DELIVER SAFETY!

These work very well-good traction and stay on your boot-All the others I've tried seem to come off your boot or shoe and don't offer the solid footing in icy conditions that these do. I would buy these again and would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Yellowstone2468 Great item
I bought this based on other consumer reviews. The was a gift for my husband. Upon opening, the item was in great condition. My husband tried them on his snow boots and they fit perfectly. We both were impressed the grippers attach easily to his boots and do not move or "wiggle" on the boots.
They feel as if they are part of his boot and feel very secure. We have not had an opportunity to use them yet as we have not had any icy weather. However, my husband is confident they will perform well in snowy and icy conditions. I feel the customer reviews on this item were accurate and I feel I made a very good purchase for ice grippers that give you firm footing and walking security.

Rated 5 out of 5áby EAGLEBEAK FINALLY A QUALITY STABILIZER
I have gone through 6 pair of ice stabilizers, by 2 other manufacturers, these are the first that I can safely walk on ice, no sliding, I can walk like I am on bare trail, and have no fear, thank you.

The best Grippies ever. They're easy to put on and take off. They stay on your boots, have excellent traction, and are comfortable on asphalt, concrete and gravel. I was stuck in the house for a big chunk of this winter because of so much snow and ice, but once I got these I could walk outside again even on the worst slipperiest sidewalks.
