Just wondering with all the snow and freezing conditions ,if anyone else uses these. I have been using these for the past 2-3 yrs , and I love them... Mine broke Wed while taking down Christmas decorations might have been able to do a poor fix but decided to order a new set.
I put these on my boots at the first thought of falling or freezing conditions and take them off at end of season. Directions state not to wear on cleared concrete, I have worn them across the basement floor. Walked on rugs in our laundry room , down our wooden steps , steep grades with and without snow asphalt or concrete have had no problems.
Went on line Thur morning and ordered the YakTrax Pro Ice Grips received them today USPS. I thought of buying the cleats for boots but them only having maybe 10 cleats sticking down ,just wasn't sure, I knew these worked.

Ordered them from TheWarming Store Yaktrax Pro Ice Cleats, Ice Grips and Winter Walking Aids - The Warming STore

Be safe. I know doing against the directions ,but they work great ...first time walking on smooth surface or driving tractor just beware they are on your boots or shoes. Has saved me from falling on our driveway or over at the church doing off the sidewalks and steps.

I have a set of those as well, and some Grip-X ones they gave us at work for walking on ice. I think for long tern durability the Grip-X ones are better, but either will save your a** from falling on it:laugh:

Our supervisors won't get us anything for our boots... We was lucky to have a vehicle that would run. Always NO MONEY in budget, and make sure your safe out and about. Don't fall and hurt yourself. Seriously if someone had mentioned these they might have ordered them for us. Knowing some of our workers I could see them walking with them on ,across a new hard wood floor ...

Hmmm, I have a pair in the closet that someone gave me as a present a while back. I've never tried them, but I may need them to get my mail today. My driveway is slick right now!

et,

Yea, be careful where you wear them. They won't take much abuse... at least the ones I had didn't. Wore them a couple times over sneakers to wet wade the river. Tore them up pretty quick. I went with another brand with the carbide spikes. They hold up great and work on ice, and I can still wear them wade fishing.

First snow storm before Christmas I was heading out in "duck feet" boots to the wood pile like I've been doing for 17 years with this wood pile... Next thing I see is cedar trees and sky, I'm flat on my back! No harm done, I'd have to pay big $'s for that adjustment at the chiropracter...

Next day, with 3 open measures of bird food, I turned the corner by the downspout... and I was looking into the snow on the front yard. (Expletives deleted) I went inside and ordered a set of those spirally Yaxtrax from LL BBean and got 'em 2 days later.

I have to say that Cabela's version of insulated side zip duck boots are pretty well made, but the soles have very little traction to start with. Mine were polished smooth. The Yaxtrax really give me a more confident wood gathering experience... But is't tough not turning an ankle with 2 loaded milk crates of wood going over the driveway. Which gives me the chance to update my zip duck boots with some new ones and leave the Yaxtrax on the old ones... (Yaxtrax are a PIA to put on the boot, and don't let them hit you in the eye when you take them off, they will double for a slingshot during a survival situation!)

I paid something like $30 for those same ones, but then it's BBean's and the shipping is fast/FedEx and they have a no question-no BS return policy for all their merchandise.

I use them ice fishing and gave my parents a set so they don't fall when walking outside. They work well. There are also some variations that have small jagged or spiked end for better traction. I sell alot of these in my sporting goods store.
