Brilliant idea for spiking lawns. Very useful for someone with health problems not having to exert heavy pressure.

A bit fiddly to put together and took a bit of practice to use but with the aide of 2 broom handles for support I did get the lawn done. Cancel your gym membership as this is like a boot amp workout but worth, I feel, the effort

Used these a couple of times now. Took a few attempts to get the straps right so the shoes didn't keep on falling off.
Now the straps are fitted correctly they are fine and much easier than using a fork.

First class way to aerate an average size lawn. Much more effective than the hand operated roller type aerator I've tried in the past. Personally I just use one sandal as I find this easier than wearing both of them at the same time. Being retired it doesn't matter if the job takes a little longer.

Best to watch Lawnsmith demostration video on their website before using,
it is invaluable.

My lawn was fairly compacted so I though I would give these a try. Once you get used to wearing them they are easy to use. The more you use them on the lawn the easier it gets. Having used them 3 times on the front lawn the soil is definitely less compacted and the the grass seems to be growing more strongly

I fired these on and went walking. Worked well and done exactly what they said. Probably better for people with a normal lawn, good drainage, regular sunlight. My lawn has awful drainage, so I needed to really aerate well and put a layer of topsoil on to get the grass growing again. For that, I would recommend an electric aerator.

Robert Lovett

A useful bit of kit for lawn aeration. but took some experimenting before I was able to use them effectively.

I have clay soil, which makes the spikes very difficult to withdraw when the soil is wet and too had to make effective holes when the soil is dry.

In addition, I had to try several different techniques when walking with the aerators on my feet, due to the sticky nature of the soil. Walking forwards I found that my heels tended to slip out of the sandals. I wouldn’t recommend walking sideways like a crab as if you loose your balance, as I did, there is a good chance of damaging your knees unless you fall over backwards.

Personally I found walking backwards to be the safest and most effective way of using these sandals on relatively heavy soil, but walking forwards works fine on lighter soils.

The quality of the soles is excellent,however keeping them attached to your feet with the method of straps is poor.I ended up using only one foot,took longer but safer

Used only once so far but very pleased. Much more effective than the old garden fork.
You have to be very deliberate with your stride pattern, I found side to side best, or you can walk out of them.

Brilliant, almost enjoyable to use. A good 20 mins to set them up, tighten the bolts well. After a few steps you get used to them. Love them, easier when the soil has some moisture in it.. Let's see what difference they make. Also brilliant at picking up leaves.

Now these are a really good product. Have read accounts of others struggling, both with the straps and with the technique. Does take a little practice to find out how to get suitably tight but once on are superb. I used to ice climb and the technique with these is the same as with crampons: walk 'au canard', like a duck, feet slightly wide apart and splayed, and deliberately press your feet in and lift just as deliberately. Be careful when turning. Not only will this give your lawn a quick improvement but also you'll know how to use crampons next time you're on snowy or icy slopes! Good luck.

Worked well and I think they would rate a five if I had larger feet!

However, managed to cover large area and seem to work well enough.

It does take a little bit of time to get used to walking on the lawn with the aerator sandals, but the results are well worth the effort!
The sandals are well-made and robust, easily-cleaned after use (do watch out for the spikes, though) and are easily adjusted to fit your footwear as tightly as possible, which is important to stop them slipping off in use.
Personally, I take a broom with me when I use the sandals to provide a bit of extra leverage if the spikes do get stuck in the lawn!
A really excellent product which does exactly what it says on the tin . . .
