Maybe you’ve been up snowshoeing several times now, using rentals or borrowing pairs, and you’ve decided it’s time to invest in a pair of your own. While you may need snowshoes that are slightly more advanced than the Redfeather Hike shoes, you also just need an affordable, easy to use pair of snowshoes.

If that sounds like you and you are eager to start breaking trail without breaking your budget, the Tubbs Venture Series Snowshoe is a great bridge into true wilderness snowshoeing.

The Venture Series has an asymmetrical ReAct binding for custom foot-specific fit and the all-day comfort you’ll need on longer hikes. The snowshoes are also constructed with lightweight and durable aluminum.

The Llghtweight aluminum toe crampons bite into hardpack and icy crust for a secure step in variable conditions, while the frame will help keep you aflorat in even the deepest fresh snow conditions.

The Venture snowshoes also feature the Fit-Step frame and a responsive RII pivot system to promote a smoother, easier stride, and natural foot position in all conditions.
