Manfrotto 230 reviews

230 (3255) All Weather Tripod Shoes (Set of 3) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neat product, missing some details. Brings stability on soft surfaces like sand, gravel, etc. I bought them primarily to assist with gripping plastic surfaces, like gym bleachers. What I quickly realized was that the bottoms were not padded or lined with a rubber gripping substance. No worries, I cut up the non-slip mats you would usually use for lining cabinets and have them for use with the pads. With this little hack they work splendidly on slick surfaces. If the product had this feature, definitely 5 stars. Until then, three it is. On the fence with the recommendation to a friend, if needed for irregular surfaces yes, otherwise no (unless you plan to follow through with my gear hack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Carpet Shoes I thought to use these on beach sand with my large, heavy 190 tripod. But I have found them most useful on carpet! They spread out the contact area on carpet and make the tripod much more solid and stable. They are a bit big to lug about unless you have a really large tripod bag, but at add very little weight. But when faced with thick carpet, these seem to work wonders. When trying to level and forced to use a living room as your studio even a major tripod can rock an irritating amount on carpet with the small foot contact area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on snow (and slippery floors) These snow shoes are fantastic and I wish I had got them many years ago. I live in Canada where using a tripod in the snow is always tricky. These shoes work well in the snow as advertised, but they also improve the grip on on indoor flooring such as linoleum and concrete. (I encounter these surfaces frequently at universities and other large public places, and they have always been problematic with my tripod.) Now I just leave them on my tripod all the time, even though they look kind of funny there. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure they are flat against the ground when you set the tripod down. They have a tendency to tilt up, which is not stable. Nudge them down with your toe if necessary, and they will hold the tripod securely. They have an angle to them, so it helps to position them so that they follow the slant of the tripod legs (i.e. the sticker is on the outside). I use these on my Manfrotto 055SS tripod legs but they attach with a rubber strap; it seems to me that they could be used on any manufacturer's tripod, large and small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps me from sinking in the sand I use these on my Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod when I am on the beach. The all weather tripod shoes go on easily, rubber stretches to fit a variety of tripod feet. Shoes are snug and do not move. I take 30 second exposures of sunrise and sunset, without these shoes my tripod used to sink in the sand during exposures. No longer a problem with these shoes. They are an inexpensive solution to my sinking tripod. I would recommend these shoes to anyone using a tripod on the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea I often use my tripod on sand and snow which is why I got these. They are easy on and off and fit just right in my tripod bag pouch. I was using my tripod at a building with foam rubber floors for cainine performance events. The normal rubber tips sink into the floor and cause wobble which the add on shoes promtly fixed along with eliminating any tendency to slide. Besides the building management is touchy about tears caused by retractable spikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT I own a 600mm Canon lens and like to photograph Bald Eagles, etc. In the winter, I'm forced to place my tripod on the snow and with the weight of the tripod, gimbal, lens and camera, one or more of the tripod legs is bound to sink in the snow chancing a costly tipover. Works as well in the mud too.The snowshoes prevent this from happening. Very well made and at $, it is very cheap insurance for your investment.I strongly recommend this product for the reasons mentioned above.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Handy To Have, Easy To Lose I do a lot of long-exposure seascapes and bought these tripod feet to prevent my tripod legs from slipping or moving during long exposures of several minutes, when the waves are coming in and out and sand is shifting. They do a pretty good job at that but, often, they come detached from the tripod foot quite easily and, once lost in the shifting sands under water, they will never be seen again. The manufacturer really ought to come up with a more effective way of attaching the shoe to the foot of the tripod.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Float on snow! I have used these on soft, wet snow with great success. A bit cumbersome to attach but work well. Not sure they would be enough to keep the tripod on the surface of fresh powder.
