Small Foot Pocket Snowshoes Are Small Enough to Carry Anywhere

— September 29, 2015 — Lifestyle
Traditional snowshoes are oversized, heavy and bulky, but not Small Foot Pocket Snowshoes, which feature an inflatable design and small size when not in use. The secret to the Small Foot Pocket Snowshoes is the inflation; while other designs focus on metals or wood for stability, the utilization of a balloon-like sole give the shoes more stability than any others.

The ethos behind the Small Foot Pocket Snowshoes is simple: to carry less equipment so you can explore with ease. Weighing in at just 2.2lbs, the Small Foot Pocket Snowshoes are compatible with almost any footwear, which means you won't have to carry around a specific pair of shoes to work with them, thus further reducing your gear load.
