Hey all! 

 

Need some recommendations (if any out there) on climbing spikes for hiking shoes/boots. Most locations I hunt are steep hillsides or road cuts. I recently used some hiking/snow cleat attachments to my hiking shoes hoping it would give me additional traction on a steep rocky road cut but the stress to the cleat snapped the rubber/metal. Does anyone have any product names they trust when investing in safety gear?

 

My main locations I hunt are Brookville & St. Leon, Indiana.

 

Thanks!!!

I would add to Snolly's advice that you can never go wrong with a steel toed boot of any kind.

+1 for steel toed boots! I hunt steep road cuts in Kentucky. Very similar to your area. Steel toed boots are all I wear.

I used to do a lot of fly fishing. Some of the rivers I frequented had bottoms made up of very slippery rocks. I would strap "Korkers to the bottom of my wading shoes and never had a problem. Rather than slip on the rocks the metal spikes would dig in. You can look at the LLBean or Orvis websites. To save money, check out Cabella's. Another option is to get boots that are made with the cleats built in. I don't know why your cleat snapped off. I've never had that happen. Hope this helps.
