The product is exactly what it looks like, kind hard for it to stay in position on a shoe though

eh. could do way better. they couldnt have at least made the spikes full tang? i mean the spikes are not fully down into any one of the holes and easily fall out. they should make the spikes part of the initial slab of metal. they might be good to mess around with, but to go farther than that? yea.... no.

these foot spikes are very sharp easy to use, but unfortunatly for people with wide feet the can't work correctly, also one of my spikes were lose and got ripped out on the first tree i climbed but other than that very nice product for $8

A different pair of laces is a must, as without a decent fit these will do next to nothing. Other than that, the metal is tough and the spikes are plenty pointy. Combined with the hand spikes and some practice, tree climbing becomes considerably easier.

buy some paracord either before or with these...the laces are just cheap shoe laces...the spikes are welded to a 3/4 inch plate so its very strong and durable

I bought these with the hand claws, and theyre great! i feel like i can climb anything. just 2 things; if you are running through a field its great for digging in and u can run slightly faster. And second, dont run on your mom's lawn (or anyone else's) cuz it tears it up like crazy! 5/5!

They are great if you know how to use them... but they are very hard to get on tight. You will need a strong pair of shoelaces of your own i suggest bootlaces. They will come loose as soon as you step on a hard surface such as concrete brick pavement hardwood floor ect. They are good for climbing trees or wooden buildings but thats about it.

Nice and sturdy build. Wish it came with four spikes, but its only one spike set for each foot. Sharp points

loved it and it was well made. the spikes are nice and thick and can take a lot. i tested them out climbing a tree in my back yard and i got up really fast. my only problem was that i didn't know how to get down once i got up there it took me a while.

they work great if you can get them to stay on...kind of hard to make them secure on your feet though

weak laces. not for climbing in my opinion. good on ice but not as great on other stuff in my opinion. may be good for fighting.

This will be my first reveiw, but it wont be the last and I plan to be thorough.

For use for Ice traction -
On ice these work very well. The spikes dig into the ice, many times down the plate. As long as you learn how to walk well on the ice with these, you should be able to run on the ice with them. Warning: Do not use on thin ice., you will penetrate the ice sheet and you will get very cold and very wet.
On ice - 4 out of 5 : Minus one point for the thin ice factor, it will crack the ice easier

For use for dirt traction -
While walking, you can barely feel the spikes sinking into the earth, unless the earth is hard. In that case it sinks in with a slight bit of resistance. Accelerration can only be comparable to the feel of taking a brand new pair of sneakers and running on concrete or asphault. At top speed you dont feel the spikes under you at all, only the traction you get from them. They sink without a problem, and exit without a problem as long as you are running on earth.
On earth - 5 out of 5 : No cons to using these on earth

For use on concrete or brick -
I do not suggest this at all. AT ALL. These spikes are not made out of high grade steel and will not keep it's sharp point if you walk or run on concrete, asphault, brick, or anything hard like that. If you cannot avoid walking on before mentioned hard surface, then take off the spikes or the shoes that the spikes are attached to and walk barefooted (or in your socks) across it and put them back on when you're back on softer ground.
On hard stone-like surfaces - 0 out of 5 : They wear down the points, they're loud, extremely hard to run on, actually lessens the traction. Absolutely no good can come of using these on concrete

For use for climbing-
If you are climbing a tree with these, chances are you did what I did and paired them with the hand claws. While these footspikes do offer a fair amount of traction while climbing. This is of course using the "bear climbing" method where your feet are on opposite side of the tree, with the soles of your feet flat against the tree. The spikes dig in a small amount, enough to give you a small edge in climbing. However with this method you are limited by the size of the tree. If the tree is too large you wont be able to wrap your feet around it, too small and you can just simply bend the tree over. Also many trees that fit within this zone of usability have branches low enough to where you can jump up, grab hold of it, and then use these spikes flat against the tree to walk yourself up.
For climbing - 3 out of 5 : Not the most perfect tool for climbing up trees, definately helps a bit if you have the right kind of tree plus the right kind of climbing method.

For use as weapons -
These fit on to the bottom of the feet, and they are black so that means they are easily concealable. I've tested many martial arts movements that would employ these as weapons including the hook kick, snap kick, front kick, back kick, the hook sweeping kick, and probably a few more I'm forgetting to mention. They all are still executable almost perfectly, with the exception of the pivoting kicks like the hook kick and the hook sweeping kick, which only require a short time to get used to and then all of the kicks one would normally do can be executable while wearing these.
As weapons - 4 out of 5, seeing as how most fights take place on concrete, and with everything I've written above about using them on concrete. You'll be lucky if the fight you're getting into is on dirt, because if the concrete is no longer a part of the issue, you've got one hell of a pair of weapons.



Pros and Cons

Pros-
Fast shipping, only took two days to arrive here. I'll be a happy man if all of the items I order from here arrive as promptly as these have.
Awesome traction, if you use these on anything but concrete, it will be sure to impress.
Price, $8 is a pretty good price for the traction this allows.

Cons-
Attachment, it only comes with one small shoelace to attach to your shoe originally. A basic fix to this is buying another pair of shoelaces, but even those slip off occasionally. However you can superglue them to the bottom of old shoes, but this pretty much makes the pair of shoes completely dedicated to the spikes. Unless you have either superglue or an elaborate system of shoelaces, there is a good chance for slipping.
Shoelaces themselves - They are prone to breaking because the holes drilled into the sides leave square edges that will cut into the string after extended use.
If you use the supergluing method, then you can remove all of the shoelace problems, but your left with the problem of having dedicated shoes.

Now, the major question everyone's been wondering: Should I buy this?
I rate this as a 4.5 out of 5, for the simple fact the attachment method could have been made much better. But since I can only rate in whole numbers, and the attachment problem is easily fixed, I give this a 5 out of 5. So should you buy this? My answer is : Yes, it's definately worth the money. Buy them and use them, you wont be disappointed (as long as you fix the attachment problem)

Thanks Trueswords.com for supplying another great item.

good steel construction but the "straps" are cheap and virtually impossible to keep on

Buy with the hand claws. These are amazing. I can climb trees very easily with the help of these. Sure the laces suck but for a buck you can go out and buy a tube of super glue at a dollar store and glue them to the bottom of an old pair of shoes and they will hold. I have climbed tons and this hasn't failed me yet. Also, interlace the laces through the holes in the shoes for extra support in case.=)
