Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieQ Does the job
I bought these last year to put on the bottom of my (non-LLBean) boots for use in Norway. I had fallen while skiing the year before and was still dealing with a shoulder injury and wanted to prevent another fall. These trackers did the job and I felt safe at all times walking in either fresh or plowed snow. I'm back to order a pair for my husband, who kept taking my pair!

These are great especially for someone older, you can walk on the snow and some ice and not have to worry about falling down.They are just what the doctor ordered.

I haven't had the opportunity to use my Stabilicers yet, I KNOW they will be wonderfully helpful this Winter. I fell last year, and do not want to repeat that performance! I have every confidence that these items will keep me upright and secure.
Everything about my dealings with LL Bean, from browsing to delivery was seamless, a real pleasure....as usual!

These are really nice! Easy on, easy off. I've had other cheaper versions and the metal would get ground down or the rubber would snap and break. These are made of nice quality material and will do the trick this winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fay2000 Disappointed
I ordered the suggested size from the chart for my size 6 women's shoes. I had to stretch the stabilizers so much, I was afraid I would break them. In the end, I was able to put them on only one of my shoes and the heel of the stabilizer was nearer to my instep. I returned this item.

With these Stabilicers I can't wait to go about my daily business in the concrete jungle (NYC) this Winter more confidently. Last Winter's "black ice" episode caught many of us completely unawares but not for me now with these. They were easy to apply to the soles of my LL Bean Bison boots and the relief I feel knowing I have the proper traction to safely navigate urban terrain in tumultuous weather is priceless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by daffie2dis LOVE THEM!!!
Bought myself a pair then bought a friend a pair too!!! Every year for the past umteen years I've fallen...getting older so having more fear of breaking something till a customer of mine suggested I get me some of these stabilicers WHAT A GREAT SUGGESTION for sure...I put them on my boots or my work sneakers & off I go...LOL only thing I would advise anyone is buy two pairs so you don't have to keep changing them..boots are a little bigger then sneakers so mine have stretched alittle bigger on the boots & now don't fit the sneakers as well...so I'll be ordering myself another set of these Stabilicers for sure....thanks LLBean for having such awesome products!!! A very happy Customer in Maine

Rated 3 out of 5 by campfiredragon They work great until they slip off
I bought these for winter because I enjoy walking around without focusing on not slipping. I bought them for woman hiking boots and ordered up because many reviewers suggested they run small, and I'm happy I did.
PROS: They helped prevent me from falling and grip ice very well.
CONS: They work great until they slip off. Yes, LLBean does sell a "hiking" version, but I'm on a tight budget so I got these. When I hiked icy trails, even very flat trails in the Adirondacks and throughout PA, they eventually slipped off multiple times per adventure. I'll be walking and suddenly notice one is missing as I slide. I've wasted so much time retrieving them and looking for them while on my walks that I ended up saving no time or energy like I wanted to. I even had them slip off while walking on a frozen lake.
OVERALL: Maybe they work better with every-day shoes (and I'd recommend them to people with wearing everyday shoes), but I do not recommend these for boots.

As a senior citizen with a bit of a balance problem I used to be very wary of walking on the snowy, icy sidewalks, parking lots and drives of my Vermont town. I love to walk but this kept me indoors much more than I liked. Then I saw an ad for these 'Stabilicers" and thought it worth a try..it was MORE than worth it! As soon as I put them on my shoes and boots I was a new person out there, confidence replaced my concern and winter was no longer my enemy!! They have been great for me, give good traction and are easy on and off. I bought a pair for a friend who had another type she was not happy with and she said these worked much better for her too. I am very thankful for them!
