These are the greatest!

I am an occasional runner and, living in the midwest, tend to keep my winter running to the treadmill because I don't want to slip and fall. I saw these when I was online shopping on the Road Runner Sports website when I was shopping for something else [...] and thought why not give them a try? They are amazing. They give great traction in ice and snow. I felt as sure-footed as a gazelle. They did not disrupt the feel of my running shoes at all. I highly highly recommend these for all you winter weather runners!

I absolutely love these and can't believe I've had to limit my winter running before without them! They're a little heavy and feel a bit odd when first running (esp on dry pavement) but I did 10 miles of mixed trails and icy/snowy/dry pavement without a problem. Best on either ice or packed snow, up to about 2 inches. Looks like old reviews the cleats wore out quickly; not sure if this is still true, though they come with a spare set and you can order them for 8$ on RRS as well. Definitely better than yaktraks for winter road conditions.

walk with ease on the frozen tundra

We walk about 30 miles a week, live in a rural area with hiking trails, frozen lake, and woods. Ice Joggers are an essential part of our safety, and we can enjoy our winter environment as much as we do in milder months. Will take them on a trip to the southwest in case of snow on trails, and have recommended them to friends.

I'm a lot safer

I have a steep driveway and it can be almost unnavigable when there is ice. These ice cleats make that driveway accessible, but you still have to be very deliberate at steep inclines. The product works best on a hill if your foot is perpendicular to the incline; if your foot is sideways, the cleats do not grip quite as well.

I bought this product because I walk all year round and live in New England. They are very light weight, easy to take on and off and provide good traction on snowy and icy roads. I wear them over a pair of running shoes and they fit great.

Get A Grip with Sure Foot Ice Joggers

5

Sure Foot Get A Grip Ice Joggers are awesome. I used them for the first time for a Snowflake Race and the course was extremely icy. I felt confident, safe and secure running on the ice. I would (and have) recommended this product to friends.

They Really Work

I use the Ice Joggers when I go out to feed my horse in inclement weather. They work exceedingly well on snow, ice, slush, and mud. The fit over my riding & muck boots quite nicely.

5

I've run on glare ice with these, and have NEVER slipped. The rubber harness securely fits over the toe of your shoe, and when you buy the correct size, the rear is secure on the heel. But make sure you pay attention and get them centered when putting them on your shoe. They tend to shift slightly if you run longer distances. Also be aware these studs may appear to be blunt, but they are small enough to tear skin if you happen to tag your ankle with one. I like the fact the carbide studs are replaceable.

5

I've had a pair for over 10 years and they've held up perfectly. Not a single stud replacement necessary! The only reason I'm ordering another is because one of the pair went missing over the Summer :( These are absolutely indispensable for winter running. I actually find myself seeking out ice since they work so well (and, while they don't present problems on dry pavement, it feels a little like running in tap shoes).

Love these! Living in the Great White North of the Upper Midwest, I've trained for two marathons in all types of weather. A bonus is the rubber top helps keep out some snow and water; Wide-holed mesh on some shoes may be good for breathability in the summer but awful for letting in the snow and ice water in the winter.

Wow. What an excellent idea. I've tried similar products before but they've never done what the Ice Joggers do. I can now run on ice and packed snow and not even think about slipping and falling. Whoever made these things is a genius. How do I buy stock in this company?

I've had these for years and love them for winter running ... problem is, now that I've had them for years a few of the cleats are gone and I NEED REPLACEMENTS! Where can I get replacement cleats? Quick the snow is just about to start falling here!

They do provide improved traction on ice and snow, but unfortunately are not at all durable. After several runs they fell apart (I tried a second pair with the same result). A better design is needed.

These work great. Buy a larger size than you think, as they are quite tight. If all else fails, a friend just screws short screws into her shoes and that seems to work well, but they wear out quickly.

Way too heavy. Not good on a mixture of dry pavement and ice. The spikes can make you trip on bare pavement. I recommend Yak-Trax.Much lighter, better grip, but wear out too fast.

Definately a must have when conditions are icy and you are "off road". They work great - as if there is no ice at all on your packed trail or dirt road run.
