The Gold 17 Snowshoes by Crescent Moon. So large, we had to take an aerial photograph of the shoes just to show them. But sometimes, you need some really big shoes for hiking across untracked deep snow where even the huskies don't go. Even though they'll float you and your gear in the deepest conditions, they're very lightweight. And, the larger version of the SPL binding will accommodate some very big feet, up to size 16. So, go big, into that good forest.
Each set of aluminum snowshoes come with a pair of heel lifts.
What is a heel lift? It's an optional feature for your snowshoes, which adds 2 inches of platform under your heel and makes climbing more efficient, comfortable (by reducing the strain on your calf muscles), and improves traction.
If you're located in the mountains, and you're snowshoeing up long, sustained climbs, a heel lift might be exactly what the doctor ordered. If you're spending most of your time on flatter or rolling terrain, you probably don't need the heel lift.
