      Works great, easy to use

      Posted by Bill B*n*c on Apr 20th 2023

      I can't believe how long I waited before getting a gaiter solution. I run mostly on trail and for long days (e.g. many hours) sand, dirt, pebbles, and sticks find their way into the shoe. Those invaders lead to irritations and even blisters if you're on your feet long enough. These gaiters do a great job of keeping out the junk, so you can keep running with happy feet. I bought these ahead of running the Zion 100 hundred miler, and I think they were key to my success. Only once during in the whole race (which was more than 90% on trail or dirt road) did I pull something from my shoe. The strap held up fine for this distance. They'll wear differently based on the shoe tread you have. If the strap tucks between treads, good for you, and you'll have less wear. If the strap hits a lug and comes in hard contact with the running surface, then you may need to hit up the friendly people at Kahtoola support for a warranty replacement. And replacements are sold for cheap anyway. I'm a happy customer.

      Great Gaiters

      Posted by Anne Groebner on Feb 28th 2023

      Love these gaiters! Fit perfectly on my boots and worked great with my spikes. This combination made walking my dogs in snow and ice a lot more comfortable and safe!

      Gaiters Exceeded Expectations

      Posted by Robert Campbell on Feb 27th 2023

      I was originally concerned about the durability of the below the shoe strap. I finished the Black Canyon 100k a couple weekends ago and there are merely scratches on them with some desert dust. The gaiter kept all stones, sand and silt from entering the shoes. I used the gaiters on my Altra Timp 4 shoes. I am very pleased and these gaiters will be my go to gaiters. I highly recommend them.

      Love em! Ez to put on and take off, and did excellent job even with multiple water crossings at Black Canyon 100k. No rocks in shoes the whole way!

      Simple, Durable, and Effective

      Posted by Aum Gandhi on Oct 26th 2022

      These gaiters get the job done! The style is simple, the functionality is easy to get a grasp on, and these gaiters are great in durability. I used them for over 100 miles and had maybe one tiny pebble get in. Blue is definitely my favorite color!
