Snowshoes Pair No. 2, Old Snow Shoes

Snowshoes Pair 2. These old snow shoes are 11 inches wide by 37 inches long. These are the old, traditional kind of snowshoes before the modern aluminum and plastic snow shoes were even thought about. These are indian made and have the red tassels on them. These are made of gut and wood. The wooden frame is steamed and bent, then it is laced with gut to make the deck that supports the hikers weight on the snow. The larger size snow shoes give more floatation on light, fluffy snow. The smaller snowshoes are easier to navigate through trees and rocks. Buyer pays $12.00 S+ H in the USA. If using please send a total of $162.00 for the snow shoes and shipping combined.
