Great first pair of shoes!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

After doing a lot of research, I went with this type of shoe. Easy to put on/take off, works well in a variety of conditions (not that I know much, I'm a newb). Don't have issues with stepping on my own shoes, which is good :) and they are quite light.
Bought with the Atlas 6000 Series Lock Jaw 2-piece trekking poles - good match, no problems.

Occasionally I do get the snow flipping up towards my back from the shoe movement (springs) but one just has to adjust the step a little bit (don't end so much 'on your toes' as you would if you were walking) and it fares better.
Now it just needs to snow again so I can use them!
