A friend and I bought these at an outdoor store. We used them on one hike where the trail was covered by ice, snow, and a few exposed rock sections. Before the day was over, the rubber in both pairs was sliced in multiple places, rendering them virtually useless. They gripped well on the ice and I could recommend using them on smooth surfaces but not on trails where you might be walking over rocks.
