Kahtoola TS snowshoes

This unique, two-part winter footwear system includes a snowshoe deck and a removable snowshoe binding that doubles as a traction device. Buckle the binding on your winter boot.

When not engaged to the snowshoe deck, the bindings’ four stainless steel cleats serve as pseudo crampons for grip on snow and ice. Then, when the white stuff gets deep, click in to the deck and float over snow. $269, www.kahtoola.com
