Yaktrax Pro Traction Cleats instantly provide better traction, confidence and safety for walking, jogging, or hiking on packed snow or ice. Pro Traction Cleats fit over shoes and are secured with a durable rubber strap that ensures an excellent fit. Traction is provided by a shaped-edge coil design that provides unequaled stability on ice and snow, letting users move about naturally with the same solid grip as on dry surfaces. Yaktrax Pro Traction Cleats are made of high-strength, abrasion and rust-resistant 1.4 mm steel coils and heavy-duty natural rubber to help the cleats easily conform to the shape of any boot or shoe. Multiple coil angles provide 360 degrees of traction on cold surfaces for stability in all directions. Because Yaktrax Pro Traction cleats have been tested in temperatures as low as -41 degrees Fahrenheit, they can be worn in a variety of environments, from icy Wisconsin streets to packed-snow trails in wintery woods. Yaktrax Pro Traction Cleats are available in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes to fit most shoes: Small (fits shoe size W6.5-10, M5-8.5); Medium (fits shoe size W10.5-12.5, M9-11); Large (fits shoe size W13-15, M11.5-13.5); X-Larger (fits shoe size W15.5+, M 14+). For oversized shoes or boots, Yaktrax recommends purchasing one size larger than your normal shoe size.

I wore these for the first time the first week of January, 2018, and you can see from the picture below that one of them has come apart. Plus the strap that is supposed to stabilize the unit would cause the Yaktrax to shift and roll. You just can't stop multiple times to fix the strap. And, yes, I work with a lot of straps on equipment so I know how much is the right amount of tension.
And you can see in the photograph the thin cord holding the rolled wire snapped off the large central button. The old style did not have this huge button with the extruded arms with wire wrapped around a flimsy connector.
Winter is still here and these were needed. I will never ever order these again. My safety depends on my having sure footing and these are poorly designed junk compared to what they used to be before they were "improved."
Is there a refund or replacement policy? I would absolutely like to use them again.
These absolutely do their job, however with much maintenance and caution:
First off: don't get these if you're planning to rely on them for hiking.
Why? The worst issue is that there is no cross elastic brace on that top diamond to prevent the coils from wrapping up on the sides of the boot when taking a step (especially stepping in snow where someone else has already made a footprint and your foot doesn't land exactly flat). I found that I was reaching down to adjust them every 3 to 5 minutes.
The next annoying issue: as you can see from other hikers who have reviewed, they break very easily. Why? Common sense: if you walk on anything but snow and ice that has any form of possible abrasion to the elastic, well you'll break down the elastic and SNAP. This didn't happen to me, because I was very careful to walk slowly and not push off when stepping on gravel or anything possibly short. But this is kind of a silly situation since they help you speed up in the snow, but really slow down (or have to take them off) when you're in conditions that you should be going fastest.
The only pro: they weigh nothing and fit in your pack easily. I can see the only use for them is a really cheap backup in your pack if you're hiking somewhere with light snow / ice, and you're worried about crossing a thin trail on a cliff where there is compact snow/ice. But, for only twice the price (not 4-5 times the price for mountaineering crampons) you could get some all metal chain mini spike crampons that might weigh a bit more, but won't slow you down, or break and leave you having to risk slipping.
