Exactly what I needed, especially this winter
With all of the freeze-thaw-refreeze cycles this winter, there is almost always some black ice somewhere. Even worse is when there's a dusting of snow on the black ice - that makes the ice less visible and more treacherous (nearly 0 friction). That has led to a lot of accidents in our area, including for my family.

As a result, one is safest when wearing the Stabilicers consistently. But wearing them on clean pavement does wear them down. I've found that I need to wear the Stabilicers *always* and an check them often (at least weekly). The cleats at the heel wear quickly, and if they wear too completely, it's a real problem to remove and replace them.
Two things: one must be very careful to order the correct replacements. I've had to send back two orders (to other vendors) who shipped me the wrong replacements, in spite of the picture on the ad. The other: lots of demand leads to little availability. I was disappointed when my order to ActiveForever went through but was followed by an email that they were out of stock. I had to carefully rotate my cleats until the order came in. And it did come in, when promised. So I will give both the cleats and ActiveForever top marks, but suggest that backorders be handled a bit better.
