I ordered these for a winter hike I was doing a few weeks ago.

They went on perfectly and for the first 20 steps of my hike, they worked like a dream. No slipping, skidding or anything.

BUT then they broke. First, the back half of one broke then about 1/2 a mile later, the back half of the other one broke. The front parts stayed on for the rest of my hike so I had at least a little traction but they were still junk.

I returned them and do not recommend anyone else buy them if you plan on actually walking anywhere in them.

I went on a winter hike trying out these tread grips. I have two complaints for the product. First the spikes create pressure points on the bottom of your feet. If you are going for a short walk you may not notice it, but I went for a 7 mile hike in these and my feet were killing me by the end. At around mile 4 one of the chains snapped on my right foot, and it is no longer usable. There are much better versions out there, and you obviously get what you pay for with this. I'd strongly encourage anyone looking at this product, who goes on long hikes, to look at some similar models that are slightly more expensive, otherwise you will be throwing your money away on these.

The links on these are made with very soft steel and open easily. On a climb last weekend I had to break out my multi-tool and repair links after every use. While descending a snow and rock filled gully they basically disintegrated and I haven't bothered repairing them. I'm now going to order some Kahtoola microspikes which my two fellow climbers were using and held up just fine.

These microspikes are horrendous. Both fell apart a few hours into my first hike wearing them. The chain is poor quality and the links are prone to separating. If you are looking for a reliable well-crafted pair of spikes, shell out the cash for Kahtoola's MICROspikes.

The one benefit of these spikes is the nifty little bag they come with. I will be using it to store my new Kahtoolas.

I can't believe anyone would give this more than a one star rating. These are waste of money. I bought these to slip over my snow boots for walking on a steep road that sometimes gets icy. First, the rubber device that attaches the cleats to the shoe or boot is so small it barely fits my woman's size 8 boot. It's very difficult to stretch the rubber to get it to fit and then you have to try to shift everything around to make sure the chains and grippers are all on the bottom and not up the side. Once it's on the boot the real problems start. Maybe if you had a boot comparable to an inflexible child's ski boot these might work. However, with regular snow boots, in a very normal woman's size, the rubber attachment part put so much pressure on the boot it buckles right above the toe. After only walking a short distance I could feel extreme pressure from my deformed boot on the top of my foot. Do they keep you from slipping on the snow and ice? I wouldn't know because they were too uncomfortable to wear long enough to find out.

I have never left a review for a product before, but these microspikes are so poorly made, I felt compelled to warn people. I guess it was bad on me for not reading reviews before I requested these as a birthday present. I took these out for a short hike and by the time I got back both pairs were broken as chains had popped off and some of the welds on the links were broken. I've never in my life seen a lower quality product. Do not buy.

I think it is a really good product BUT make sure you order to meet your proper shoe size. The ones I ordered are for a medium shoe up to size 10 and with my hiking shoes being size 11.5, there is no way that they will fit over my shoes. I am in the process of returning them and cannot wait to get the proper size so that I will stop slipping and sliding during my winter hikes

I bought these Dec.20,2013.I have used these only about three times and today they broke in several places. The metal is very soft and not for use on a product like this. I nearly fell when they broke. This is a very poor product. Dee

This could easily be a great product and would receive a 5 star rating from me if they had taken the extra effort to spot weld the links closed so that they don't come apart on you while in the middle of hiking a treacherous trail which requires so good footing. The links on this are left open which allows for them to seperate and come apart. If you buy this product I would recommend spot welding the links closed so you don't encounter the same situation I did.

I misplaced my Kathoola microspikes and bought these instead of replacing them. Big mistake. They broke before I had walked to the end of the driveway the first time I wore them I keep pliers and small tools by the front door because every time I wear them the links break apart. I spend almost as much time repairing them as wearing them. Not even worth the $15. Save yourself the frustration and spend the $ on Kathoola Microspikes
