These are my first pair of snow shoes and we went for a 2 hour hike on the first outing. My husband used these and I used the female version...here's what I saw. The shoes are really easy on and off. The straps flop around a bit if you have small feet and it's hard to find a good place to tuck them out of the way. The clip for the strap is small and hard to use with cold fingers. The poles were pretty nice and seemed to work great until the insides of one came apart (again 1st time out). Think the hubby can fix it so I'm keeping them and his were fine. Over all great set for a first timer that didn't want to spend too much money.

You would not choose this set for long outings, but it is more than adequate for those odd treks which most of us will use them for. With telescopic poles included and much, much less than the identical set is sold for at a certain members only big box, they are a steal.

Shoes look very nice and the combination with poles is very attractive. However the movable parts rub against the sides of the shoe. Used once for half an hour and needed to return noise very disturbing. Design needs improvement.

Wanting to be able to go walking during the winter I chose these shoes as they were providing the poles and carry bag along with a well known brand name. I am unable to offer usage advice as our recent snow was rained off but they look sturdy. Should they be as good as they look and serve (work) as well as Sierra Trading Post has they will be a winner.
