I bought these in November 2021 and wore them for one hiking season.
The Velcro straps broke and the spikes wore very quickly.
I like the fit and and how that handle ice.
They are also very easy to put on and I feel safer than the spikes with chains.
Hi! Thank you for leaving your review. We are sorry to hear the Velcro straps on your crampons have broke - we understand this could have negatively impacted your experience while hiking. We offer a 2 year warranty on our spikes & we have reached out to you directly to start this process.
Easy to put on, and effective on ice to “get a grip”. The Velcro strap across the top is a big help to ensure they stay securely on.
Hi Bonnie, thanks for taking the time to leave a review! We are so glad to hear you are enjoying the spikes. Happy trails!
The spikes are lined up in a narrow pattern under the length of the boot, making it too easy to turn and injure an ankle when walking on ice, which is one of the intended purposes of the crampons. I would not feel safe using them. They seem fine on snow, but not on a hard surface. I think it would be better to have the spikes spaced out over a wider base, and I would consider buying such a model.
Unfortunately I am returning them for refund.
Great icer, comfortable for most terrains, doesn't clump like ultra spikes. The top strap becomes unglued from the logo portion of the strap but not a major issue. After some wear i am also missing 2 prongs on one icer, doesn't seem to affect the effectiveness although i'm a little cautious on ice sections.

The Flexsteps Crampons are easy to slip on over my boots, and work very well on the snowy/icy trails I regularly walk, including up and down hills. They are superior to other slip-ons I've had in quality and effectiveness, and are good value for the money.
