    Installing studs in boots

    Toe studs in 45NRTH W÷lvhammer boots make pushing off a lot easier on 'Zamboni' ice.

    Heel studs help keep you upright on ice.
    Note: Check to make sure the lugs on the sole are solid. Except for the two lugs on the tips of the toe and heel, W÷lvhammer boots have hollow lugs so the four side lugs need to have the studs located within 3/8" of the outside edge of the lug.
    I would also recommend squirting a dab of Shoe Goo« or into the pocket prior to installing the stud.

    W÷lvhammer boots do not come with stud pockets. Click link below for step by step DYI Stud Pockets

    I have done the same thing to my boot but I add some more studs around the pedal area. That work pretty well but they are not really big enough to work great. So I went back to installing sheet metal screws in the same locations, the head of the screws are just so much bigger they will give you a lot more grip. Also I had a few of the grip studs pull out where as the sheet metal screws you can get long enough to start to screw into the sole of the boot which holds really well.

    I installed Grip Studs into a pair of Timberlands after slipping on ice and breaking my ankle three years ago. Works great. Have to remember not to walk in the house with em though.
