I have been using my trusty US Army magnesium shoes for ages, but I am ready for something different.
We tested some "fancy pants" shoes without tails in Alaska (well over 10 years ago) and they didn't work for jack......way too small. They had (nylon?) sheet secured to a tubular aluminum frame. What they did have was a sort of crampon/teeth that was pretty handy sometimes.
Anyway, I have been looking at the MSR Ascent in 30" (longest available), but I have my reservations when it comes to these fancy shoes, especially the bindings.
Anything new and exciting when it comes to shoes?
The reason I am starting this thread, is that snowshoes are discounted big time in the summer, and I have found some (apparently) great deals.
