Rated 5 out of 5 by PoconoGuy Totally satisfied
A great upgrade over Stabilicers Lite. These fit my boots better and the Velcro straps keep them in place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Klua Ok but not great
I live in Montreal where the weather is unpredictable and the streets often turn into ice rinks. I walk my dogs at least one hour a day and run in the early winter months, so I do need traction. In my personal experience, you still need to be very careful with these things on your feet because they do not offer the best traction in the very icy conditions. If you are a heel striker like I am, beware that the coils in the back do not catch very well. Also, if you step into snow, they easily come off the heel. I've had to retrace my steps to go find the missing Yaktrak. It is, however, better than nothing on the feet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SydneyT Not what I expected
I tried my YakTrak Run for the first time today -- some black ice, a little snow. The grips really don't grip much on ice -- I still slid. They were not easy to put on, and they definitely run small. My feet were killing by the time I went only 4 miles. I used these for walking, had hoped to run with them, but they are too clunky to run with. I'm disappointed, I was really hoping these would extend my ability to exercise outside during the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bbbon Excellent traction
I live in Wyoming where there is snow and ice on the roads for at least 4 months out of the year. I walk my two large dogs twice a day even in the winter. My dogs walk good but I've always worried about falling, which I have done before. I used snow cleats last year and found I could still slip with these. With the YakTrax, I feel so comfortable walking. They have excellent traction and I recommend them to anyone walking on snowy streets. I wear a size 10 in women's but found the small size was too small. I exchanged them for a medium, with a new pair in my hands in less than a week.
