ICETrekkers Diamond Grip Traction Cleats provide aggressive traction in all winter walking conditions, from boilerplate ice to backcountry snow and everything in between. Made of case-hardened steel alloy and strung on steel aircraft cable, the grips' patented diamond beads have hundreds of biting edges that grip in all directions. Effective for all types of winter terrain, ICETrekkers Diamond Grip Traction Cleats transition with ease through gravel, rock, mud, snow and ice, making it nearly impossible to slip. Easy to put on and take off, thanks to an elastic, yet tough, rubber sling, cleats can be worn with most footwear, including athletic shoes, boots, and dress shoes. Even in subzero temperatures and deep snow, ICETrekkers Diamond Grip Traction Cleats stay put, and self-clear to prevent snow and ice buildup. Cleats come in four sizes to fit most shoes and boots: Small (fits shoe size W5-7, M5-6); Medium (fits shoe size W7.5-10, M6.5-9); Large (fits shoe size W10.5+, M9.5-12.5); X-Large (fits shoe size M 13+).
Style: Large (Men's 9.5-12/Women's 10.5)

Update - I did wear them again last winter even though they were rusted and they still worked great and after a few uses a lot of the rust wore off and they looked much better so I changed my rating from 2-4 stars. I just pulled them out again for this year and they look like a mess again with all the rust (should have sprayed them with wd-40!) but hopefully they will still perform as well again.
For me, they are perfect for trail ice/rock surfaces and packed snow but I certainly wouldn't want to use them in place of a true crampon for glacier travel. I also would elect to use snowshoes with crampons for deep snow. I don't ice fish but if I did, these grippers would be my first choice.
P.S: The ICETrekkers broke after 2-years use (only in winters). The front square section cable just parted and several of the little traction grippers fell off - never to be seen again. Originally I gave a 3-star rating, but now I'm changing it to a single star - not recommended at all.
Somethings to consider:
~Buy one size larger to fit over hiking boots.
~Think twice about using these grippers on street shoes since the spikes on the little rollers face in all directions and could conceivably damage leather soles.
~Don't forget to remove them before you walk into you house ............ Don't ask!
Edit: After a few months use this winter (2013-14) I've discovered a drawback to these IceTreckker grippers. As I've indicated above, they're terrific on ice and packed show. Today I used them on a new light snow at a temperature of 27-deg F and they picked up snow on the bottom of my boots. There was so much of this packed snow on my boot soles that it quickly became difficult to walk. I had to stop every few strides and knock off the 1" packed layer that formed or risk bending an ankle. The grippers were actually holding that packed snow in place very efficiently thus defeating their intended purpose.
1 year update:
So I've used these here and there for a year now (only in winter of course), and they seem to be working just as well as when I first got them. I really have only used them a handful of times. They did rust pretty quick but are still doing their job. For how longer? I'm not sure. Still keeping the rating at 4 stars because they are useful, but I have since started using microspikes instead as they are much better for the things I do. These are great for running in town on icy days though.
