I read some things on the RW forums that makes the YakTrax ones sound like they wear out fast. these are intriguing, but maybe not for $59!
The Stabilicer Sports look like they can be used even on patches of cement w/o wrecking them though.

I'm looking at all the different types...Yaktrax, Stabilicer, Get a Grip, etc. Anyone have any favorites that they've found held up better than others/ fit better, etc? Tried them all and none worked? I don't think I want to put screws in my shoes!

From your list, I've only used the stabilicers, and I've been pretty happy with them.
$59 is well worth not having to run on the mill, though!
Thanks Blaine. Have you tried any other kinds before that?
You know I have run it all sorts of cleats, I absolutely hate yaktrax and I tend to use a great pair of slip one spikes that are lgithweight and last one Alaska season, have tried trail runners with spikes (>$150) and runningn shoes with bolts screwed into them (they are great but are weird when you hit asphalt that isn't frozen. I always go back to my slip on running spikes $22/pr... Spikes can be replaced and I can run up frozen rivers or icy stairs and rds and I can take them off when I don't need them.
