I purchased these for the Pikes Peak ascent and I'm satisfied. I found the adhesive to work well and the velcro on the back doesn't give up its grip. These are simple and weight almost nothing. I cleaned the back of my shoes very well prior to installation. It's very important to order these according to your shoe size or you risk a poor fit. You can still kick an occasional stone under these, but it's rare. I've already recommended these to others.
Loved how these worked while they worked. Mind you, these are not waterproof, so on a rainy day or going through puddles, you will take on water. But they do an excellent job of resisting wet grass/weeds, and keeping out dirt and debris. BUT: you cannot replace the velcro strips therefore, these are only good for use with one shoe. They come with just 2 sets of strips, which on first installation, came off immediately after 24 hours and a rainy run. I tried through MH and through 3M, who manufactures the velcro. Neither company had a clue what I was talking about. The company I ordered from online was also of no help. Just so you know, once you shoes are retired, so are these!
Best gaiter for trail running I have found. The fasteners for the back of the shoe do not stick well on the shoe, and they only provide enough for two pairs of shoes. I wish they would include a 12" length of stick-on velcro like you can buy at the fabric store. Also, the front hook for the shoelace is too small for some shoelaces such as come with the Cascadia 5. For the money, they should fix these these things. But, overall, I would buy again.
