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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyWSV Stabilicers...Best Product I Have Tried
I love Stabilicers for the ease of putting them on, and the safety they provide me on icy surfaces. I am a morning walker in all kinds of conditions, so I really need something to keep me from falling in the cold winter weather. This product has saved the day. I previously tried many different types of anti slip protection on my shoes, but I found that this item was more reasonably priced, sturdier, easier to go over my shoes, and gave me more traction. They will not keep you upright on an extremely icy surface, but they sure come the closest of anything else I have tried. I have told many people about them, and will continue to be a winter walker with Stabilicers.

Unexpected snow event and no boots. My daughter had the stabilizers in her purse and was able to put them on and made it through the snow and ice. Very easy to put on and take off. Great addition for your purse in the winter.

these work great when walking on ice. They give a very stable footing and confidence when walking. I didn't fall once this winter.

These are the best things to slide on your shoes for ice and snow. I have ordered 5 pairs of these so far for each member of my family including myself and each member loves them. This past winter we had 3" of ice under 2" of snow on our driveway which is very steep wearing these stabilicers allowed us to keep from falling or slipping when we were clearing the driveway. Would highly recommend buying a pair for icy weather.

My husband learned about Stableicers during an ice fishing clinic at the Burlington, VT LL Bean store. Since we walk daily no matter what the weather, the Stablicers kept us safe from falls. Today the trail was solid ice, but we had great traction. A very worthwhile purchase for winter safety.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sabrinasmom thanks for keeping me stable in icy winter
These helped me from slipped and crashing to the ground during our many ice storms this winter in Philly. Bought a second pair for my husband. Thanks LL Bean for a great product to use over your boots.
