I like my new Stabilicer Maxx.They are easy to strap on and off (sit in a chair and cross one ankle over the other leg), and grip well in deep snow, mixed pack snow/ice/frozen slush, and lighter snow covering asphalt, concrete, and wood. They can be a little slippery on vinyl tile, and mine did not leave dimples. They are definitely slippery on ceramic tile. They help a good deal in going up and down snow-covered hills and slippery, hilly, driveways and parking lots. They definitely add a good deal of stability, and make walking my dog much easier. (Eight times yesterday in a 16-hour span of time...and in a foot of snow.) I recommend checking first on the Stabilgear.com website. Use the site to see other products, to see the video about how to put on/take off, but most importantly, to figure out your correct size. Be mindful of what type of boot you're using. I found the XS was a good fit and even a little big (long in back by about 1/2 inch) on my women's USA size 7M Timberland Nellie's--a leather, high-top, women's work boot. The XS was a little small on my Columbia Bugaboots insulated, thick snow boots, women's size USA 7.5, even though the sizing chart indicated XS should fit. I can use them, but the back of the boot really does not fit in the straps, and I am walking on the straps. I'm keeping the XS for my Timberlands, and have ordered a size Small pair for my Bugaboots.
Now about pricing--be careful. Definitely find your size on the Stabilgear.com website, but shop around to find a lower price. The Stabilic
er Maxx is $57.95 on the website (and LL Bean has them for $59.95, though out of most sizes), but on Amazon Prime I got the XS for $41.50 and the Small for $35.95. I bought a pack of 50 extra cleats on Amazon for $7.94...facepunch...they are only $6.00 on the Stabilgear website. Note also that brass spark resistant cleats are available for $8.00--meant for people who deliver fuel oil or otherwise work outside but have to avoid sparks.
I have not been able to test these on sheet ice, but as soon as I can, I will get back to the group with a report. So far I recommend these highly. (I don't own stock in the company--am just happy to feel so much more secure outside.)
