From L.L. Bean: “These snowshoes are virtually identical to those worn by Maine woodsmen 100 years ago as they tended traps and performed other chores in harsh winter conditions. L.L. Bean wrote in our 1941 catalog, “If there is a better snowshoe made we would certainly like to see it.” Made from steambent white ash that is handselected to ensure the grain runs the full length of the shoe for maximum strength. Durable handlaced decking is top-grain rawhide, meticulously varnished to seal out moisture and prevent sagging. Leather “H”-style binding adjusts at the heel and forefoot for a secure fit. Narrow profile and long tail make getting around in thick woods easier. USA.”
