Snow Shoes

Snow ShoesSnow shoes are not like snow boots, and they are not something that you really need to wear until the snow is really deep. The goal of snow shoes is to keep the walker out of extremely deep snow. Because of the design of snow shoes, people are able to walk on top of snow that is even several feet deep without their feet and legs sinking into the snow.

The design of snow shoes is somewhat similar to the design of a surfboard in the way that it distributes the weight to a larger area than a typical shoe allows. By doing this, it helps keep the feet and legs from going straight through the snow. If you were to try to stand on water, it would not be possible and your feet would immediately sink. But, if you climb on top of a surfboard, you are able to stand there without sinking. Snow shoes are designed very similarly for the same reason. Snow is essentially water so, although it is a slightly more solid form, you will still sink when stepping into it.

The difference between a surfboard and snow shoes, however, is that snow shoes are much smaller, and you have one for each foot, so that you are able to walk instead of just stand. The shape is the same, though. If you have never seen snow shoes, picture miniature surfboards with a boot attached to the top. This allows your feet to have more control over the board that is beneath it. Steps taken in snow shoes are often large and uncoordinated, however. It takes experience to be able to walk in snow shoes with any form of agility.

This makes snow shoes better for use when you absolutely have to use them to get from one place to another without sinking in the snow. Many people who live in areas where there is much snow often wear these to go from their house to their animals for feeding, or they wear while taking their sled to an appropriate sledding area.

Snow shoes aren’t needed very often unless you live in an area that traditionally receives many inches of snow in a relatively short period of time. If you live in an area such as this, you likely already have snow shoes on hand just in case you may need them. If you don’t have any yet, you may want to get some so that you are prepared just in case. You will likely appreciate the assistance they give when you need to walk through extremely deep snow.

If you live in an area where there isn’t usually this much snow and snow shoes are rarely needed, you may not even have access to buy any. In this case, the stores near you may not carry snow shoes, and having them delivered by ordering them on the internet might not be an option (you may not need them by the time they are delivered, or delivery might not be possible due to the weather). So, what many people do in this situation is make a homemade version of a snow shoe by strapping their shoes or snow boots to a tennis racket. If you do this, it works best with the handle pointed back. While this won’t work perfectly, it can help you when you would otherwise not be able to even walk outdoors.

As you can see, not everyone will need snow shoes, but for those who do, they come in very handy and work wonders. If you will need snow shoes, or think it may be a possibility, you can find them at many stores, or you can find them online.
