Between the car and the trail, these neoprene booties shield shoes from the elements and help keep feet warm and dry. Made with lightweight and stretchy neoprene, a pair fits snugly over sneakers or boots for added protection from wet, snowy, and icy conditions.
Crescent Moon Makers Tamara Laug and Jake Thamm are avid snowshoers, but they were feeling uninspired by the traditional gear. Tamara, a lifelong runner, thought that applying a similar rocker-style shape seen in some running shoes could make this wintery pastime more dynamic. She and Jake decided to target the most common complaints among snowshoers—heavy, clunky shoes—and create a new style that felt more intuitive and enjoyable to wear.
After two years of prototyping and testing (and picking the brain of a shoe designer buddy), the team landed on the perfect balance of design and materials. These snowshoes have a curved shape that helps them move more fluidly on the trail. And, because they’re made of foam, a pair is super lightweight and easier to maneuver in. Gone are the awkward-feeling shoes and the resulting dragging motion. Now you can head out into the snow with a new spring in your step.
