User Review: Kahtoola Microspikes
Price Paid: $59
I had been using Yaktrax Pro for about a month here in snowy Michigan when I found that they were wearing out. Switched to the Kahtoola Microspike and thought that I was in heaven. I felt so much more secure on ice/black ice, etc. in my Microspikes! Even on an icy/muddy trail, I didn't have one moment of instability.
I do have to say though, that just over a month later (about 3-4 miles a day, 3-4 times a week, sometimes running, sometimes walking), I have worn the chain just behind the last spike on both feet to the point that I am now putting them back together with anything I can find -- paper clips, wire, etc.
Today I am trying new chain completely on both of them. Hoping that I can make it through the icy season before I have to send them back for repairs! I guess I didn't expect that for the price.
