I have rented these same shoes at a National Park and had a blast. Wanted my own pair! Excellent grip and traction on crusts and flotation on snow. Pays for itself after just a few uses compared to rentals

Reviewed by Terri Northshore from Minneapolis on Friday, December 20, 2013This is my second pair of these snowshoes. I wanted one pair for the cabin and one pair for MSP. They are easy to get on and off. They adjust to very different sized foot wear. They are very sure footed , handling icy conditions very well. I have plantars fascia titis and they let me hike for many hours in comfort.
Reviewed by Montuvio from New England on Tuesday, December 17, 2013I went with Tubbs because they are both Seattle and Vermont--two great places to hike. Also, researched the Flex Tail and the ability to pivot within the shoe. This showshoe prevents you from slipping on branches and rocks because it doesn't have the metal exterior frame. The price was unbelievable through Sierra Trading Post, so I grabbed them immediately. This is an all around excellent shoeshoe that will take you over hill and dale with great ease and fun.

“The description mentions a heel lift & it can be seen in the photo. Pictures of this same model elsewhere don' have the heel lift. So what's right about the snowshoes that STP is selling?”
My snowshoes are in my barn, so I will double check this afternoon. That said, I was equally puzzled by the heel lift. To the best of my knowledge, there is not device that stands out as a heel lift. I LOVE the snowshoes and highly recommend them . I will be back in touch ASAP. Also, the shoes do have great action---so perhaps that is in fact the 'lift'
I am not aware of any heel lift. I have plantars fasciitis and they are more comfortable than other snowshoes.
For those who aren't familiar with them, the "heel lift" is the U shaped wire piece below the heel. It flips up so the foot will be close to level while on a steeper up slope. Less strain on the calf & the achilles. I need them for the Sierras near where I live.
“I am looking for a snow shoe for my husband. We cross country ski but have not snow shoed. He is 6'2" and weighs 185. Should I be looking at the 24 - 25" or a 30"? I would like the heel lift as we ski on trails in forest areas with rolling hills ”
We would recommend the 25" for 185 lbs, but a 30" would do okay also.
