Running snow shoes. What a hoot. Just another city slicker scam. I watched my neighbors try to "snowshoe" through the open space behind our development the other day. Step after step, they sunk down through the snow all the way to the frozen ground. These toy snow shoes don't have enough surface area to keep you up. Even more of a hoot is actually watching people running on packed trails wearing these things. Real snow shoes keep you up and allow one to actually walk on the snow and allow one to go where one can't go on foot (or wearing these dumb toys). PT Barnum was right, a sucker born every minute.
