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).

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!

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.

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.

I love this product!!! I just saw the new ones at the store the other day, and I guess they dont have the wearing out problems the old style did. Can't wait to get running in the winter again!!!

Just finished a 1.5 run in Lake Tahoe--packed snow and ice. Not one slip. These are the best.

Just used these for post-ice storm and snow Ruldolph Ramble race, and they are great! Also, better grip than Yaktrax, according to myself and several other local runners. A must have for winter runners!

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.

I bought these for my husband, but tried them on after he was less than enthused. I loved them! He borrowed them back a short time later, and was surprised at how well they worked. What a great product!

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.

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?

These are great. You can run on pure ice without slipping at all. A must have for wintery conditions

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.

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.

before owning this product, I would fall down because of icy conditions. I would recommend the ice jogger if you live in an area where one has to deal with winter conditions. They do work!
