Better than spikes/studs! Best price I could find for the pro version. Bournemouth based based company Safetystock said they were getting deliveries of these in daily as demands are high. I ordered mine today by phone (Thurs) with probable dispatch either Friday (tomorrow) or Monday.

Watch the sizes... I'm an 8.5 - 9 and only need the medium! Here is a guide to the sizes care of a diligent Amazon reviewer;

Here's the sizing info off the actual carton, so you don't make the same annoying and costly mistake I did. For clarity, I've converted them to UK sizes here.


SMALL
Men: 4.5 - 8 (UK)
Women: 4 - 7.5 (UK)

MEDIUM
Men: 8.5 - 10.5 (UK)
Women: 8 - 10 (UK)

LARGE
Men: 11 - 13 (UK)
Women: 10.5 - 12.5 (UK)

EXTRA LARGE
Men: 13.5+ (UK)
Women: 13+ (UK)


The XL size has been made for a yeti, surely?

Extra large is not big enough for me but great deal, if only my feet were small I would buy them!

Back up your COLD votes!

I got something very similar from Costco a few weeks back, the pack consisted of two pairs for around a tenner.

bit pricey - petzl walking crampons can be had for £17.10 delivered - would argue that spikes are better too - crampons have been used for years - if these clog theres no traction IMO - but then again still a small price to pay for keepin your bones in tact

Not the pro version! Tho interestingly this is the same company!

If people learned to walk properly in the snow these wouldn't be needed.

A stint in the Army methinks.

How many soldiers do you see sliding around on ice/snow?

not on compacted ice it won't - ask chris bonnington:D

Alternatively get a bag of sharp sand from bq for £1.50

ok i voted cold on this due to the price as the pro can be had for £19.99 delivered ( plus quidco every penny counts)

I recommend these as i have the walkers and they saved me goin on my ass on many occasions on the solid ice last year.

This year they have been great as teh deep snow underneath it lies compacted ice so walkin in other peoples tracks in the deep snow meant i got a grip onice with them

Don't forget to take them off when you get in and walk over the nee laminate flooring!

Does anybody know that if by wearing these bad boys on deep [email protected] pile would it help restore the weft of the carpet

A quick look at Amazon brings up about half a dozen cheaper alternatives - what makes this particular version so good? I use studs for sheet ice and they seem excellent.

Got a linky for those? I tried a quick google but just came up with some mislabled anti-ball plates.

I ordered a couple of pairs from Amazon for £19.99 a few days ago (they aint available anymore at that price from there).

This was after a advice from a friend who is a runner and has used these for a couple of years - goes out running whatever winter throws - continued running right through the long very cold / crunchy winter we had up here in rural Aberdeenshire last winter!!

Have a decko at the reviews on Amazon Amazon Yaktrax reviews

Looks as if they are pretty well regarded by buyers and they do appear to be pretty durable.

There are cheaper ones available called Yaktrax Walker but the pro appears the way to go :-)


p.s. I tried to get some last winter & they werent available anywhere - meant to pick some up during the summer but forgot. Thats why I ordered as soon as it got cold again.

sorry mass99 - can't PM - they WERE anti snow plates with mislabelled item and wrong image as well! sorry to waste your time!

Search for Magic Spikers. About £10 and just as good, if not better

Walkers are cheaper at Viking Direct - 11.49!
