Rated 2 out of 5áby Shae disappointed
I, too, had a problem with the Stabilicers staying on my boot. They slipped of the toe of my boot.
Also, the traction wasn't wonderful. I slipped multiple times on icy sidewalks.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Stabilizer Problem staying on boot
Even though I ordered the recommended size, these stabilizers do not seem to fit my boots. Despite the strap, They keep slipping off the front. If I can't figure out a way to keep them on; I will return them.

Rated 3 out of 5áby tb01 fair fit, flimsy construction
Haven't had these long and haven't used on ice yet. The rubber seems pretty flimsy and they attach around the boot margins using elasticity that I suspect won't be durable. Only one strap goes over the boot. Probably what you would expect at the price.

These worked great on ice. I couldn't believe how easy it was to walk on ice. Only problem I had is the strap that holds stablizer on boot is velcro has come apart already. I,m sure LL Bean will replace this strap. Still a great product I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Sadie317 Great for walking
These securely stay on unlike other brands I've had and also don't break. The cleats themselves grip the ice very well. You may want to size up if you wear these over hiking shoes or chunky boots. An excellent product for the price.

We live in Vermont so the Stabilicers are a must! The sizing was very accurate and the added velcro strap that goes across your shoe or boot is an added plus.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AmericaninTO They work.
I'm ashamed to admit that I'm one of those Midwesterners who never learned how to walk on ice. If there's a patch of ice, I'll slip on it. Guaranteed. And that's exactly what happened when one of the worst ice storms hit Toronto last month. There was ice everywhere and to this day stores have no rock salt in stock. I took my dog out to the park two weeks ago and slipped. It was a bad fall; my tailbone still hurts. That's when I decided to buy the Stabilicers.
I received them today in the mail and, for the first time in weeks, told my partner that I would take the dog to the park tonight. He was shocked. The park is presently a sheet of ice and completely treacherous. But with the Stabilicers, I could walk with complete confidence. It felt wonderful to be the only dog owner not sliding around, trying to hold on to fences, garbage bins, or trees to keep myself upright. Yes, they're awkward on shoveled sidewalks; you do clip-clop. However, they're amazing on ice. If you're a dog owner who has to navigate an icy park, this product is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BPerkins Walk on Ice with Confidence!
I'm a nature photographer and the Stabilicers Lite Hikers allow me to get out on the ice with confidence. I got these (in mediums# for my Maine Hunting shoes #size 10). Easy on & off, and was very impressed with the footing and grip on solid ice. They allow me to go places I would never otherwise consider with the equipment I carry. Although they have the velcro safety strap, I make several long treks across snow & ice covered terrain and never had a problem with them falling off. To be honest I wasn't expecting much considering the affordability yet they surpassed my expectations when put to the test. I'm sure theres better out there but I'm not climbing Mt. Everest, mostly trekking frozen wetlands & forest in winters. Thank you LL Bean for another excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Grannny Stabilicers - good title..Stable on Ice - yes
They are easy to put on. But, I don't want to have to put them on and off, so I leave them on one pair of boots and also have boots that will not have the Stabilicers. The velcro strap over the front of the boot assures that they stay on. I've used them in very icy situations for light hiking on moderate terrain. They have been quite successful.

In the week that they have been in use they have been used every day there is no slip and they stay where they belong through the entire walk
