Crescent Moon Gold Series Snow Shoes

By Editor | February 25, 2009

Crescent Moon Gold Series Snow ShoesIf your heading on a long trek in the snow, then these shoes will take you there in comfort.

The Crescent Moon Gold snow shoes are made to eat miles on level terrain. One reason: the bindings. The straps, which tighten with a single pull, are made from a stretchy polymer that’s snug and comfortable on the flats. A ratcheting heel strap secures the rear.

Problem was, what felt great when striding was too stretchy on high-angle traverses; testers said their heels drifted sideways because the straps couldn’t prevent pivoting. The teardrop shape and angled nose prevent crossover, while the tough, textured plastic decking offers good flotation.

Price: $239 (27″), $259 (32″) Weight: 4 Ibs. 2 oz. (27″)
