  Paddy Bear:

I asked the same question when I bought my instep crampons and the
person at REI who waited on me said the instep crampons were more
appropriate for the trail. He said he had both the Stablicers and the
insteps and his preference was the instep. I took his advice and wasn't
disappointed. He did say the Stablicers were good, however.
