I added some photos, it's clear that the footbed is breaking into pieces down to the screws that hold everything together from very little usage, I had to double-back and pick up all the broken plastic so I didn't leave it in the park. I did a 7 mile hike and used these for maybe 1 mile. The material for a significant portion of this shoe is just cheap grade hard plastic, not a higher quality rubber or urethane you'll find on a better pair.
If you're like me and hike a lot in harsh conditions, and thought you could just get something cheap and they'll perform how you need don't bother with these, they can leave you in a bind. If you're walking from a parking lot to snowshoe on a frozen lake go for it.
I recommend these to anyone. Great deal for the price. Good quality.
- quick release straps make it easy to clip in.
- somewhat light for those times you have to carry on your backpack
- plastic held up well for duration of trip
- aluminum teeth on bottom bend if you walk on rocks
- only have 2 straps on top, need a third for better circulation in foot
- no traction when side stepping across a slope, no sided to side, great on up and downs.
Update: over a 3 day snow backpacking trip in the sierras, I feel confident in recommending these. Everyone (14 others) were using far more expensive snowshoes and I felt nothing but confidence in these. I'm shocked to see how the more expensive brands have these straps that others struggled with while I had mine strapped on in seconds. The straps on these are solid and so quick. I'm 145 and these worked on a day hike and a backpack trip with a ~45lb pack. Highly recommend.
I picked these up 'used' from Amazon Warehouse deals, and they were basically like new. If you're looking to save a few bucks (I usually save 30%-35%) on merchandise, it's the way to go.
One other thing to mention here is that I recommend using trekking poles when snowshoeing. Snowshoeing is tough exercise, and the poles will allow your arms to do some of the work. Also, they're helpful for keeping your balance while wearing what amount to gigantic boots. Oh, and if your dog is hiking with you and steps on your snowshoe, they'll keep you from falling face-first in the powder.
The one complaint I do have has nothing to do with the snowshoes themselves but with the bag, which is complete crap. Both of the backpack straps ripped 95% of the way through and were literally connected by a thread after the first use. And that was while it was empty; I was wearing it while snowshoeing. Luckily, I had an old backpack that I could use on subsequent outings.
Not made for steep downhill descents, but none of them are. Steep down descents require side steps.
Liked them so much that I ordered a 25" set for anybody less than 180 that wants to go with me.
