Great crampons.
I've used the Strap version with a variety of footwear. I have found that the flex center bar is a bit too flexible to my taste, and have purchased a solid center bar from Black Diamond. I've found the 12 point system to work well for Alpine approaches in the Wasatch near where I live. I really am a fan of the stainless steel material the crampon is made of. Rust won't ever be an issue.

I have had the crampons come loose here and there on a few routes, though this may be more to user error than anything.
