How good are regular spikes ? – REVIEW !

- Review of ordinary shoe spikes – How expensive are spikes really ? – How long does a pair of regular spikes last ? – Are “free spikes” to retirees a good solution ? -

Are you gonna buy Anti-Slip ?

Then think twice,

choosing the right shoe spikes can be really tricky !

After receiving many emails to the editorial about problems with spikes/slip protection, we decided to review some of the common consumer spikes that one can find at the pharmacies, or that are distributed free to retirees:

There are a large number of different spikes, but we chose to review two types of slip protection – a pair of spikes that are pulled over the entire sole, and a pair of heel-spikes.

We tested the spikes for two days, with a half-hour walk per day.


Results of the test with the traceable spikes:

After two half-hour walks, the spikes looked like this. Four of the six spikes on the sole had disappeared. And those who were left were noticeably worn out:

We also tested a couple of heel-spikes:


This is what the heel-spikes looked like, after two half-hour walks:

The heel spikes were admittedly worn, but not as worn as the removable stitches. The yellow arrow indicates that one of the spikes has disappeared / disappeared.

Results of the test:

Spikes are generally quite expensive. They are in the price range between EUR 20-50 ($ 22-57) and we are surprised that they have such a low quality.

The removable spikes were the worst, with four spikes away after two half-hour walks and clearly outworn studs.

The heel-spikes were slightly better, because the wear-out effect was not as great. However, we lost a stud when we got home.

How long do the spikes last ?

Our tests have shown that the spikes only have full effect about one hour, but that they have a certain effect even after that (even though the metal on the studs is worn out).

Considering that they last that short, it often becomes a very expensive business to buy spikes.

About “free spikes to seniors”:

The distribution of free spikes to retirees has not had the effect that the municipalities have wanted. Fewer people than they have counted on, are using the spikes.

The reason is often that older people have too little force in their hands and cannot pull on and off the spikes over the shoes.

A solution can therefore be to use only heel-spikes if you are older and weak in your hands, as these are not as difficult to get on.

However, you have to adjust your walking manér quite a bit, since you only have slip protection on your heels.

How to solve the problem of spikes to anyone who needs:

You might have to look a little at the metal’s durability, and find even harder materials to make spikes off.

You would also need to work a little on the construction, so that it will be easier for those who really need spikes – our retirees – to use them.
