G1410.130B3 All Terrain Shoes is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Useful for 2/3/4/5 Series Tripods My review not only addresses the G1410.130B3's, but also touches on the other two models of shoes offered by Gitzo for use with their tripods: the similar but smaller G1220.130B3's; and the huge G1586 shoes. I was searching for accessory feet for my Gitzo 3541LS to use both on snow and at water's edge where the standard feet tend to sink in. The G1586 shoes are easily the biggest and are designed for Gitzo's smaller legs with push on rubber feet (i.e., that don't accept threaded accessory feet). I read several reviews suggesting that they would also work with 3 Series legs but I chose not to try them after reading that they can come loose at lower angles and offer so much additional floatation that they can slide around on sand and snow. The only thing less appealing than a tripod that won't stay in one place is the thought of chasing a loose tripod shoe into the surf. The G1220.130B3's are the shoes designed for the 2/3 Series tripods however they fit the 4/5 Series tripods too. Since they screw into the bottom of compatible legs, there is no issue with them coming loose. However, with a diameter of 2.375 inches, it is fair to wonder how much floatation they would actually provide on powdery snow. (I don't doubt they would be helpful on sand.) The G1410.130B3's are the shoes designed for the 4/5 Series tripods however they fit 2/3 Series as well. Basically a larger version of the G1220, they are 3.125 in diameter and are just slightly taller and heavier. The .75 difference in diameter may not sound like much but it results in 58% more surface area on the ground. But, since they are designed for the 4/5 Series, are they too bulky for my 3541LS? In a word, no. The larger G1410's prevented the lowest twist locks from touching each other when my 3541LS was folded upbut just barely. The diameter of the fully collapsed 3541LS was about the same at the bottom as it was at the top with the G1410's attached and folded outward. It still fit in my tapered Manfrotto tripod case perfectly. There was another, surprising difference between the G1220's and G1410's: the G1220's were very, very stiff. Adjusting them required using both hands and applying some force. They didn't adjust to the pitch of the ground automatically. The G1410's were just the opposite. They adjusted effortlesslywith a finger tip if gravity didn't do the trick by itself. It would be tempting to assume this is a random variation between production runs of the different shoes except for the fact that I've read other people make the same comment about the G1220's. This, along with the extra floatation afforded by the G1410's, was enough to sway me in their favor. However, the smaller G1220's might be the better choice for someone elseeven for a 4/5 Series tripod. My final observation about these feet concerns their weight. At around a pound, weight doesn't seem like it would be much of a factor. Yet I found the extra weight to be very noticable. This makes sense when I think about how light my 3541LS is by itself, and how much work I put into finding a high quality lightweight ball head to keep it that way. Put another way, these feet weigh about as much as my Acratech GV2 ball head so attaching them is like attaching a second ball head. This only matters to me when I'm lugging my tripod over long distances; when I do, I will be removing these feet and replacing them with the originals. Otherwise, they are a useful accessory which I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a set for all my Gitzo Tripods Replaced small feet that come with all Gitzos on my GT2531's and the GM5541. Like the larger footprint these shoes provide. Now almost never encounter the need to switch out to spikes. Installed with a bit of LocTite and with infrequent check on tightness these are worry-free. Haven't lost one unlike the OE tiny feet. Work on any surface, provide a solid footing in sand,on dirt or various pavements. I'll keep these on my support equipment forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! These will help prevent tripod feet from sinking into soft ground, mud, snow and sand. The joints allow the feet to pivot and adjust to the spread of tripod legs. The shoes are a durable reinforced plastic cup with a thick rubber pad pressed fit on the bottom. These pads fit snuggly and I think they will stay in place well. The bottom of the pads are smooth but have a rubbery grip. I wonder how it will hold on smooth wet surfaces? The pads can be easily removed exposing the cup, which I think will help grip loose sand and snow better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid, I prefer to the regual/usual This was one of my first purchases right after the actual tripod. I prefer how these support and work on any floor surface indoor or out. Very versatile and heavy duty. Keep these on all the time and love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5/5 Firstly I don't have a GITZO Tripod and I use them with my INDURO. I haven't take them off, but I know I'll need to later, as they work fine everywhere. If I want to find something against, it's the size when the tripod closing and they add some balk but as they bend the balk minimized...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gitzo's These will keep my giant gitzo from sliding around, can customise the pad undersides for even more grip with some shoe goo, not stiff they self adjust to the leg angle, great delivery time from the hardworking B and H staff.
