L. Lederman (Iowa USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I live in the Northeast corner of Iowa, where we generally see our first snowflake in October and the last in May. Due to the fact that we don’t live near a huge body of water and that we have an abundance of very strong winds, the ground here is often covered with a layer of ice for several months on end. I am not exaggerating when I say that one year I saw a wind sock freeze in a horizontal position and that I’ve seen the winds break window glass and knock over heavy cast iron garden furniture. Further, my husband is a family practice physician who works in the Emergency Room of one of our local hospitals. There are a number of severe injuries every winter caused by people falling on ice in our part of the United States. I have never been very good at walking on ice – I grew up in Texas and even though I have spent 60% of my life living in Northern climates I have never quite adjusted to the balancing act required. Children love to watch me walk on ice without Stabilicers because to them it is terribly funny to see me creep about. I’ve tried a few different types of ice cleats over the past few years and must say that these Stabilicers are the best. I am so convinced of their merit that I have not only bought them for every member of my family (including my 86 year old mother) but have also bought them as gifts. I’ve been known to take them off my feet and press them upon pregnant friends. Stabilicers fit well, they grasp the ice firmly, and are easy to take on and off. My only warning is that you MUST take them off when you go inside. They can damage fine flooring and can be VERY slippery on linoleum, terrazo flooring, etc. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (12) Reply 238 of 240 people found the following review helpful Sizing, February 4, 2010 By Mauigold (Las Vegas, NV) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) These things work very well, but the sizing chart is ambiguous. Depending on what kind of shoe/boot you will wear with them, the size needed will change. The size chart reflects use with normal street or light hiking shoes. If you will be wearing “treadier” boots or winter boots you will likely want to buy a size larger.

This review is from: STABILicers Walk Stabilicers Ice Traction Cleat for Snow and Ice – Lite Duty Serious Traction cleats for Boots and Shoe Ice Cleats (Sports) my shop is on the back corner of my property and i have no way to clean the ice and snow to access it because of extensive limestone and sod paths so i provide ice cleats to visitors who need to get back there… i have tried many brands and these work the best for easily slipping off and on, along with light weight and portability…. i where them all winter… they have large spikes on the bottom not just little pins and dont get packed with snow as easily as some brands…. if you need to wear something more robust try the full version of stabilicers, but the full version is meant to be worn all day long and arent as easy to take off and on or as portable.
