Rated 4 out of 5áby sleepyandhollowed worth it
The longer I lived in a cold weather climate the more it became obvious I needed something on my feet to keep me from falling and possibly breaking my coccus. I was pleased to see these being offered by LL Bean. I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, but I have tried them on and the fit and quality seems excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Vermontbeth Easy fit
I have not had an opportunity to use these but they fit on my boots very easily. I think they will be excellent on black ice. They are like studded tires for your feet.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LEFTGEAR Haven't tried them yet
I bought these in anticipation of a bad winter. I tried them on to see how they fit, but we haven't had snow or ice yet. I do suggest that you buy a larger size if you're not young anymore, since it takes some strength to stretch them over your shoes.
They look good and I expect they'll do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MNTallGuy Amazing grip!
I went on an ice fishing trip with my friends last winter. Some of them had other varieties of ice grips on. They were sliding and falling all over the place and I was running circles around them. They all wanted to know what brand mine were. The ones that don't want to fall will have L.L.Bean Stabilicers on this years trip!

Rated 5 out of 5áby sapper Sure footed on ice
I bought these Microspikes as the ones I had earlier are getting worn. I have the same kind in Black. I found that they fit my boots for hiking and have offered sure footed scrambling over trails. I hike 5 to 6 miles about 4 times a week. They are much lighter than the Stabilicers I also have. They are supposedly not as good as the Kahtoola's most of my friends use - but I have had no problems at all. They are light, fit fine and do the job.
Even though my 'new' purchase is tan colored, I would recommend that you get the black ones - they seem to not slip off the boots. Some of my friends who had problems with the Microspikes slipping off had orange colored ones. I think it might be that the compound used is more elastic, or it could be operator error. All I know is that mine have not slipped off my boots even once in over two seasons of hiking. And the price is right, as is the Customer Seervice!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nana61 A Lifesaver!
I'd seen this in the KofP store and bought one for myself, though I have yet to wear it. It seemed like a great idea so I bought another for my son who commutes by train then walks over a mile to the office, plus a mile to and from the train and home. Sometimes the sidewalks are not cleared and he told me how hard it was to keep his balance at times.
It was great to be able to have it shipped directly to his house since the day after it arrived there was an ice storm! He called me from work to say thank you - that it had saved him twice that morning! He just loves them and wishes he'd had them years ago.
Thank you LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby TThoFoSho Perfect for an icy NYC commute!
I love these. I love these. I love these.
I have slipped, slid, skated, fallen, tumbled, and taken out one or two unsuspecting toddlers during my ten NYC winters. No more! Thank you for making such a seemingly obvious and simple product. They work with a multitude of shoe styles, stay firmly in place, yet are easy to slip off when need be.
I'm no longer afraid to face the icy (deadly) NYC sidewalks.
