Are you just going to snowshoe on easy trails and for short dayhikes? Or do you plan on going for longer expeditions on all kinds of varied terrain? These factors will have a lot of bearing on what type of snowshoe you will need. There are also gender specific snowshoes as well as unisex models. There are molded plastic snowshoes and tubular aluminum snowshoes with leather decks. So the choices of styles are pretty vast nowadays. A good idea before buying a pair of snowshoes is to check out a review site online. Just type snowshoe review into your search engine and see what comes up. Also if you already have a certain type of snowshoe in mind but need a more unbiased review you could also search for brand abc snowshoe review. There are also many online buying options for snowshoes and just looking through many of the offerings you could find the pair you like. I hope this helps you find your ideal pair and happy snowshoeing.
