    FreeStep6 Crampons

    I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy using the crampons on fishing boots.
    They have helped me out tremendously in navigating our local streams/rivers.
    Thank you so very much!
    Craig O.

    Great review Craig! We're glad to hear that the FreeStep6 Crampons are helping you out on your fishing adventures. Thanks for taking the time to write this review.

    Great, until they're not

    I'm unsure why the chain links that hold onto the rubber part aren't welded shut, but I was near the summit of Mt. St Helen when one on my right foot broke off and then it wouldn't stay on my boot, so I was hiking the rest of the way up and down with only 1 secure foot. It's kinda tough because it's expensive to buy another set just to have a spare with you, but also I don't know that I'd put all my trust in them for a long adventure, either.

    Hi Aaron, I am sorry you had a bad experience with the FreeSteps6, please fill out our warranty form on our website and we will happily assist you with a repair. For the future, the FreeSteps6 is not intended for steep incline hiking. It is designed for activities like winter walking, ice fishing, or muddy trails.

    Excellent. I might buy one with a top strap next time.

    Hi Stephen, thank you for leaving us a 5-star review for your FreeSteps6! We hope you get lots of use out of them this season. Our other crampons that feature the top strap do add an extra level of stability and security to the fit. You should definitely give them a try!

    Best on ice/gravel

    I walk several dogs on or dirt gravel road which is usually covered in ice all winter without the spikes which are now on there 3rd winter and still like new they would pull me down many times

    Hi Don, thanks for leaving us a great 5-star review! We are happy to know that your FreeSteps6 are keeping you upright while taking the dogs out for a walk this winter. Happy trails!

    Best I've ever worn!

    I live in Northern Michigan and appreciate anything that keeps me vertical in the winter. These are the best ice cleats I've ever owned in all my years. Built for longevity with quality materials. Very easy to put on boots. I've worn mine for 3 winters now. I'm buying two more pair for Christmas presents!

    Hi Daniel, we are so happy to hear your FreeSteps6 have been treating you well! Hope those lucky gift-receivers love them too.
