Gold Series 9

rated 5 of 5 stars I've have had my Crescent Moon 9 shoes for several years now. The organization I work with has an assortment of Tubbs.  I find the Crescent Moon is easier to get on, has more maneuverability in the woods and on hills, plus is more stable in icy conditions.  Since January, I have worn them almost everyday in all types of conditions. The Tubbs only seem to work better in deep powder which is a rarity in CT.   Price? - They were a gift from my husband :) Full review

Gold 12

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great shoe when you use it for what its made for -- running.

They have one of the fastest binding systems and have a very aggressive bottom. The first time I strapped them on I did not even know they were on my feet. They are as light as a feather and are great. I would just recommend not bringing them to the mountain with you. Full review
