New -- Northwoods Risdon Traditional Snowshoes

Designed by experienced northwoods outdoorsman Gus Gustafson and crafted by master dogsled builder Clyde Risdon.  These beautiful traditional shoes are crafted in the old fashioned way - one at a time.  We have combined the look of traditional wood and rawhide shoes with our new poly-lace webbing.  Poly-lace looks like rawhide but is much stronger with less maintenance and lighter weight.  We offer them in four sizes -- 10in. x 56in. Alaskan 260lb. cap. - 9in. x 46in. Alaskan (designed for smaller framed people) 200lb. cap. - 10in. x 46in. Trail 220lb. cap. - 10in. x 36in. Modified 200lb. cap.
