[Amazon.ca] Ice Cleats $11.99 Prime

It was 37c here yesterday and 35c so far today, so I thought I should search for ice cleats. Amazon has these for $11.99 https://www.amazon.ca/EletecPro-Tractio ... W7C1G00PEN with Prime shipping, no tax, fulfilled by Amazon. In my experience, these are the most effective type on ice.

I have very bad knees and I like running mud trails/grass in the summer. I can't withstand the the impact of running on concrete anymore.

These work superbly for those purposes as well!

When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Size Information: Man M:4.5-7.5, L:8-10.5, XL:11.5-12.5

Weird. Large goes up to 10.5 but XL doesn't start until 11.5. I'm size 11. Wondering whether to go up a size or down a size...

For running shoes go down a size for sure. For boots, the sizing is fine I think. Think of the size of the shoes/boots you'll be using.

That's my problem though - size 11 seems to fall exactly in between sizes. :(

I'm going to go with the smaller size and hope that they can stretch a little bit.

Great deal. Paid $28 for similar mic cleats last winter. They worked great for snowy trails where snowshoes would be overkill.

This are the copy of the Kahtoola Microspikes who I own and are fantastic for hike on icy trails/terrain.

For $12 I am in for a back up.

STABILicers Maxx 2: https://www.amazon.ca/Stabil-251871-Cli ... B07JQXHYCS <- This is a small size, you'll have to do a search for other sizes if needed.

Same price on the American site as well: https://www.amazon.com/Stabil-251871-Cl ... B07JQXHYCS

I disagree. I'v been a certified ice rescue tech through our fire department for almost 20 years. The velcro ones were our goto cleats for around 15 years until this type came along. The problem with the ones you linked are twofold. First, it's very hard to get a completely snug fit and they tend to shift position after a few hundred meters of walking or running. Also, if there's a bit of snow on the ice, the cleats tend to gather it up and become far less effective. Things that affect the velcro ones from a rescue tech perspective are the cleats and velcro freeze up with ice after we've been in the water and we've lost a number of sets while swimming as they dislodge. Obviously, not a problem if you're using them to check your mail!
Conversely, the chain mail ones can be donned very quickly, are very snug and never dislodge. They also never clog up with ice or snow, as the points shed it as you walk. These ones are much, much better.
