A wonderful example of the creativity involved in hand making snowshoes. These snowshoes are a one-of-a-kind find. Unique craftsmanship - trapper or miner style. Everything about their design suggests daily use - from the nice thick raw hide lacing to the durable wooden frames -these snowshoes were built to take some rugged use. Some cracking of the frame on the top of one of these snowshoes - allows us to give a good price on them, while still offering a great look.
