Due North Contoured G-3 Get-A-Grip Ice & Snow Traction Aide
I purchased these back in October, and finally got a chance to use them this morning. It snowed over night, and when I got up this morning there was 3" of snow on the ground, and it was 10 degrees out, and icey. I had to go up to the convenience store, so I put these on, and went up and back with no problem. Some spots were very Icey, but these spikes dug in very well, and I was able to walk normally, like it was a warm summer day. After about 5 minutes you forget you even have them on. I highly recommend them to everyone, they are fantastic.
sizing is off
This design of grippers are hard to get on, and they do not stay on. one always falls off one of my feet. I have lost a few that way.
Absolutely LOVE these grippers. I bought a pair for myself and a pair for each of my elderly parents. You can walk with confidence and know that when/if you hit an ice patch, you can just walk right through. No worries about falling and getting injured.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these.
Am buying my second pair. Love these for walking my dog when it's icy. I can even run in them without slipping. These are a life saver when walking on icy terrain. My current pair has lasted a few years (3-5yrs.) but now one is starting to rip.
NO MORE SLIPPING FOR ME ........
I havent had to use these alot but the few times that i have they have really saved me. They have great traction on the snow and ice. No more fears of falling when i have these on. :)))
THESE ARE GREAT AND HAVE SAVED ME FROM FALLING SEVERAL TIMES. I KEPT THESE IN THE TRUNK OF MY CAR TO HAVE AVAILABLE WHEN NEEDED. I RECENTLY TRADED IN MY CAR FOR A NEW ONE AND FOUND THAT ONE OF MY GRIPS WERE MISSING WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE THINGS OUT OF MY CAR. I WAS GLAD TO SEE THEM STILL AVAILABLE.
On my last review I wrote true to size, however, they do run quite small. Still a wonderful product!
I bought these over 5 yrs ago (price was lower) and they have been great! I wear them mostly when it's icey - not that often, but find them very durable. It's nice to just put them on over my sneakers, and they even easily go over my big boots (I wear a 10) if necessary. I feel secure just knowing they are there, and mine came in a nice little pouch to carry anywhere. Great gift for anyone who lives in cold weather areas! Highly recommend!
Gets the job done
Having fallen on ice (very painful!) no less than 4 times last winter taking my dog outside, I was desperate to find something that would work in snow and ice and last the 6-months-of-winter kind of climate I live in. These work. They strap on easily over my boots and feel secure on sheets of ice and drifts of snow.
Love it Love it!!
I live in the Midwest & face many ice storms. These grips have stopped me from slipping when others around me are sliding and falling. I have a pair in each vehicle and an extra in my office. They make great gifts too!
Don't purchase these!
I never review products, but felt compelled to do so with this item. I have worn Get a Grips for several years and have been very pleased with them; however, these are not up to standards. I walk my dogs EVERY day and live in NE Ohio, so my get-a-grips get a workout. This design, unfortunately, just does not hold up. I don't know if they are using another manufacturer or poor quality rubber but after only a FEW wearings, the rubber has cut through on the bottom of the grip and severed the heal portion of the spikes, rendering them useless! This is the second time this has occurred and I am totally unhappy with this purchase. Stick to the stabilicers. They hold up much better. These are a waste of money as they only lasted for about 6 wearings!
Truly They Grip
I was very impressed with how they provide you with the traction needed on ice covered areas. I would size up if you want to use them on a thick sole boot. I have one for my car and one for the house. Highly recommend.
