You put them on your shoes so you don't slip.

The cheaper creepers are not quite aggressive.

Buy clown shoes at I Party.
They work like snowshoes but are much more fashionable!

Are they any good and do they go up to 250#'s

The one's at Job lots are really really cheap.

Probably Sam's Club will have some soon. I bought mine at Sam's a couple of years ago at post-season close out. They are great - I love them.

Pam and I were in Sam's yesterday and they have some there. Unfortunately, none of them are for over 200 pounds. The ones rated to 250 were all gone.

Oh that's to bad - mine were the 250 + ones. Look on Sam's Club dot com perhaps!

Cabela's has some that have what looks like criss-crossed springs on the bottom and rubber. They slip on over your boots, easy in, easy out. Crampons are really for ice climbing or winter mountaineering.

For tilling the garden.
