I have to admit they are easy to put on over riding boots or sneakers. They provide a lot of traction on icy surfaces--just what a Klutz like me needs--sort of like snow chains for sneakers. However, take them off before riding or going inside. And I discovered that if you aren't careful when you stretch a Yaktrax on your shoe, you can fire it across the driveway like a giant rubber band. I almost hit Ollie my dog.
