      Great product

      I love the ease of putting them on and taking them off. You can use it for the part of the trip that you need them.

      Hey David, thanks for leaving us a great 5-star review! We're happy you're enjoying your FreeSteps6 and have found them convenient and helpful on your adventures!


      I like these crampons a lot and use them often in the winter. They’re the first and only pair I’ve owned. However, when I was out hiking on my own I tripped because when my feet brushed together the metal pieces clipped into one another so that I couldn’t part my feet. I just wanted to let you know. I really do like these crampons overall.

      Thanks for leaving us a great review! Sorry to hear about your tumble though. We hope you're ok!

      Running with Skeeter

      Bought the FreeStep6. Had no problem running on the icy road with my dog. Didn't even know I had them on. Very pleased with this product and would recommend them. They fit both my boots and running shoes.

      Hi Jane, thank you for giving us an informative 5-star review and sharing your running partner, Skeeter! We're glad your FreeSteps6 have been making icy running easier and comfortable. Happy trails to you both!

      Totally worth it

      I purchased the free steps for wading in areas that were usually very treacherous. Although you still have to be careful , I can definitely feel a difference in navigating the runs. Highly recommend this product.

      Hi Russell, thank you so much for leaving your review! We are stoked to hear you have found the FreeSteps6 helpful for river wading & we are happy they have improved your over-all experience!

      Well made and effective

      I've had one pair for many years, and it's been great. Footing is very secure with these, on ice and packed snow. So I ordered a second pair in a larger size to fit some warmer boots, but they turned out to be a little big for the sole. So if your shoe size is on the border between, say, L and XL, you may want to order both sizes.

      You need to be sure the rubber upper is pulled all the way up onto the sides and back of your foot-wear, or else the cleats and chains may be loose. If you have deep lugs or heavily patterned soles, the chains may hang up and make it hard to get them properly tensioned. The rubber is very high quality and stretchy, but you may need real hand strength to stretch the cleats into position. Once in place, though, they are very secure.
