This pair seems somewhat better. The first thing I notices is that one of the straps was threaded upside down. If you don't have this kind of clasp oriented right, it will never stay tight, so I had to pull it out and turn it over to get it in the right order.
Once I did that, they really weren't bad at all. I think the optimum would be to wear boots and maybe get another small army strap or two to really get them on tight. Once you have them on tight where they have nowhere to go, they are ten times better than stepping on one of those aerator tools. I just walked around my whole backyard with them and I was really pleasantly surprised. One time one slipped off my foot because of the suction, but like I said, figure out a way to get them on a pair of boots really tight, and you'll love them.
One other point. After walking around on them for awhile I discovered a technique that makes them much easier to use: Heel down first, then flatten your foot to the toe, then lift the toe first and then the heel. I know it's not normal to walk that way, but it comes out of the ground easier.
The basic idea of using strap-on sandals to punch holes in the yard actually works pretty well. I was a little concerned that the soil would be too compact or that my weight (<150lb) wouldn't be sufficient to use these, but neither was a problem.
You have to step carefully to keep them on. Heel-toe then lift heel-toe. Also, soil that has a lot of clay tends to stick to the tines. You can easily end up with an 1" thick clot of soil stuck to the bottom, which prevents the tines from sinking in properly. You also have to pace back and forth quite a bit for decent coverage, which may take a very long time on large yards.
The plastic clips on the straps are worthless. One of them broke on the first use and some of the others broke soon after. I replaced them with some 3' lashing straps (available in the camping section of a local big-box store). Even the new straps aren't quite sufficient to keep them firmly affixed to boots due to the position of the straps on the sandals. After several (~10) steps they often come loose. Also, the back stop on the sandal, which should stop the foot from sliding off the back, is too shallow. Boots or shoes with a little bit of a curved edge on the heel will easily ride up over the back stop, which will cause the straps to fall off and you'll loose the sandal.
Summary: Ok concept, but these have a lot of problems. If the straps are upgraded, the position (or number) of straps is adjusted, and the back stop is lengthened they would be a lot better.
