      These were purchased for elderly Mom. She has been using them and likes them. She does seem to have a little difficulty getting them to stretch over the heels of her boots.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Surefoot Due North All Purpose Traction Aids:

            Whenever there is ice or snow on the ground, I attach these traction aids to my boots or shoes, enabling me to navigate the ice without the fear of falling. Now I can get out in the worst weather, instead of being trapped inside waiting for the thaw! Best purchase ever!

                  Comments about Surefoot Due North All Purpose Traction Aids:

                  I grew tired of a popular traction aid falling apart before the end of winter and decided to give these a try. No regrets! They stay in place, are quite easy to put on, and give good traction in the ice and snow.

                      Comments about Surefoot Due North All Purpose Traction Aids:

                      This product is very limited in its use. I was only able to use them on packed snow or a very thin layer of ice. Was not what I thought I was getting.

                      Comments about Surefoot Due North All Purpose Traction Aids:

                      I used these on the ice in November on the Bright Angel Trail in the Grand Canyon over La Sportiva trail runner shoes and they were great! There were many transitions between ice and dirt on the trail, and I didn't need to remove these on the dirt sections. The icy trail would have been treacherous without these.

                      The first and only time I wore them, one split in half, separating the heel part from the front part.

                      I am very unsatisfied with these. Toe box is too small to easily apply to hiking boots. Not enough spikes.

                        I wear a Women'ssize 11M - seems like a 'boundary' size between M and L - is there any adjustment (width/length) within a size?

                          On boundary sizes consider the type of footwear that you will wear this ice walker with. A shoe you go with the smaller size for a boot the larger size. Boots being higher volume than shoes.
