Rated 5 out of 5 by Davermont As Advertised
I've used these snowshoes a few times since I purchased them, walking on a snow-covered golf course. Fairly level fairways with intermittent hills.
I'm 6' and weigh 165 pounds. I wear LL Bean's 8" rubber-soled boots. Thus far the bindings have worked very well. No slippage in the heel. They're easy to tighten and easy to get out of.
My wife also bought a pair. She's a more dedicated and frequent snowshoe enthusiast, and she loves 'em.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Farmingtonfemme So far, these are great.
I bought these for my husband for Christmas. He's tough to buy outdoor equipment for as he's a Maine Guide and very knowing of exactly what he needs and how the equipment should perform. He's used these shoes twice now and is very happy with them. Our only concern is the plastic bindings, he has gone through several different shoes where the straps have snapped in the cold weather. It's not possible to purchase just a new binding .. or we haven't found a place to do this. It's annoying. SO, hopefully he'll still love these shoes at the end of this winter.
I chose LL Bean to purchase these from because I know if anything goes wrong with them Beans will make good on this equipment. A little insurance goes a long ways!
