Product description

The Ice Runner (also known as ActiveGrip) offers an easy-to-use, reliable, lightweight ice gripper for shoes and boots. Importantly, the Ice Runner is a studded ice gripper offering superior traction on snow and ice compared to non-studded models which are effective on snow. It's rare for the UK to suffer with snow for more than a few days but we know that it's the weeks of subsequent ice which represents the main problem to pedestrians during the winter season. The Ice Runner offers a snug fit around the footwear with the rubber needing to be stretched around the footwear to achieve a safe and comfortable fit. The Ice Runner is suitable for pedestrians, businesspeople, keen walkers or joggers, athletes and anyone else who wants greater stability on ice and snow. The elderly and people with limited strength in their arms should consider other ice gripper models by Springyard such as Wintergrip or Icey Heel. Both of these are heel models with an easy to attach function. The Ice Runner by Springyard has been type examined and EEC approved: Protective Equipment Class 1 - Excellent Anti-Slip effect. ** Sizing note - if your purchase of Springyard ice grippers is intended for chunky trainers or boots then we recommend going up one size bracket from your regular shoe size **

The rubber on these feels like it will last a long time. The studs are small and flat. The best way to put these on is on the shoe whilst you are not wearing it. Put the front over your shoes toe then pull the back bit over the back of your shoe. It does take a bit of strength to do this as the rubber is really tough.

Taking it off is a lot easier. Always go a size larger to be safe it will fit your shoes. The reason for giving it a 4 is the rubber has a lot of dirty marks on it. Not sure if this is how it comes from manufacturing or it’s a return. Other than that these are good well worth the time I took to research getting a decent pair of spikes. Great in ice and now I feel safe walking to work and not worrying about falling

I bought these on the basis of the good reviews, and the reasonable price. It has been my third attempt at getting snow grippers. The first pair we bought in a charity shop - new. They were far too small for both myself and my partner (despite supposedly being the right size) and were completely flat and useless - and they cost £8. The second pair we bought in another local shop - £6 - fitted my Partner's boots but don't stay on.

These ones are brilliant - flexible rubber and with a proper piece for your toe and heel - easy to get on and they stay on. I walked confidently in snow and ice up a steep hill.

Size-wise I wear a size 7 boot - and I would say they would not fit anything bigger than a size 7 (this is in the large size), neither would they fit a size 7 with very chunky heels (ie snow boot size soles and heels). But perfect for your average soled boot.

For a size 6 or 7 I would get the large - anything bigger than a 7 get the next size up - I had to stretch them as far as I could to get them on the 7.

These ice grippers work brilliantly on ice and hard snow - you can walk almost normally, just take a little care.
There are a couple of drawbacks however...they are a very tight fit if you buy an up-to size 8 fitting, they are really a bit too tight for an 8 shoe and difficult to put on. The larger size is a little too large as the rear spikes can slip over the back of the heel, but are wearable with a little care. It is best to fit them to a stiff shoe permanently and carry a spare pair to change into "off piste". In normal conditions, you can be walking on ice, then a thawed area, then ice again, and it's not really practical to keep changing shoes...just proceed carefully on short stretches of tarmac and accept that the spikes will wear out regularly - they are replaceable it seems.
They are well worth the money if they stop you falling on ice even once, and they will!
It's quite amusing to watch other folk sliding around while you stride out confidently. I recommend them to anyone, especially the elderly.

Brilliant is an understatement, these grips do EXACTLY what they say they do, it doesnt matter how hard you try , you wont slip even if its minus 9 and the paths are like an ice rink.....

I ordered these 18 days ago..they arrived before expected date
i tried them out in the snow and ice and they are brilliant...no slipping or sliding at all, easy to put on shoes or boots and easy to remove... These have Small metal spikes in them FAR better than the ones with plastic studds as the plastic ones tend to fall off..

Walking in the snow and ice using these ice runner grips is like normal walking, you feel safe, you dont stiffen your body expecting to fall or slip, great for people with Bad Backs especially,as any sudden slip is painfull beyond belief..

A few days after buying these grips i Had spine surgey for a long standing lower back disc problem, I came out of hospital and walked fine across the snow and ice to the hospital car park..

Believe me once youve had SPINE SURGERY the last thing you want to do is slip at all....

you walk at a normal walking pace...The only strange feeling with these is when you cross a road or some tarmac where there is NO snow or ice, then you feel like your not walking on the floor,as the spikes are on the tarmac where the soles of your shoes would normally be....But obviously when your on snow and ice the spikes dig in deep enough so your feet feel like they are flat on the floor...A Simple and easy to use product...Pity there is no 10 star Rating...instead of the measly 5 stars i have given them....

Might be o.k. for kids but only if shoe is around size 5. I take size 7 to 7.5 shoe and would need to use metal levers and a vice to attempt fitting. Will bin this item and check locally for options. Your size chart obviously not helpful.

Bought 2 pairs of these Ice Grippers as both myself and my husband were going to Arctic Norway. They were brilliant. The conditions in Norway were very icy, I would have had real problems walking around without them. The first time we walked out, I tried without them. Fortunately I was carrying them in my rucksac and was able to put them on. I take a size 5 shoe, and found that the large size fitted best over my boot. For my husband I got the extra large. They are a bit of a struggle to get on, but at least you know once they are on they won't slip off.

Having had a full knee replacement this year I felt it prudent to ensure that I would lessen the chances of slipping on ice and twisting said knee. I have fitted them to my hiking boots and walked around the garden. So far so good. Now I await any snow and ice to see the effectiveness of the product. Up to now I recommend the ice grippers.

I bought my first pair of Ice Grippers in 2010 and then wondered why I hadn't done it sooner. I wear mine over Walking boots or Wellingtons and they work brilliantly. They can be a little tricky to get on, much easier to get off; and you do need a bit of pulling power to get them over the heel, but once in place they are secure and give me the confidence to walk my two dogs in icy and snow compacted conditions.

The only downside I have found is if conditions under foot change, you may want to remove them as the studs will wear down prematurely and if you are on a hard surface they do tend to click clack a bit.

Although my first pair are still going strong after 3 years I have just purchased a second pair as I love them so much.
