The best value out there for casual snowshoers, the Xplore is a light-duty shoe designed for packed trails and gently rolling terrain. But our testers found that the aggressive carbon­steel toe and heel crampons dug in well enough on the occasional crust, and the deck provided more than acceptable float in deeper snow. No cheap components here: Tubbs Xplores are lighter and sturdier than most entry-level shoes, with puncture-proof decking and an aluminum frame, and testers reported that the one-pull binding is super-easy to cinch and release with bulky gloves. 1.9 lbs, 25” or 30”; tubbssnowshoes.com
