The Gold 12 model was designed for runners of both sexes to get away quickly on packed trails, up ski runs, and across race courses. Past winner of the 'Winter Gear of the Year' award (Trail Runner Magazine), we continue to improve them in our pursuit of a better time. The Gold 12 running snowshoes come with a lightweight, foot-formed secure binding that holds your foot securely from top to bottom and front to back, from start to finish…. It has become the Gold standard by which other running snowshoes are measured. To keep your feet warm and dry, consider the neoprene booties that fit over your running shoes for complete comfort.
The overall weight of the Gold 12 is also among the lightest, but just as importantly, is the reliability of the entire shoe. We think you should be able to able to run "all the way" back home. Whether you're a seasoned snowshoe runner or shopping for your first pair, the Gold 12s are among the best trail running snowshoes you can put on your feet.
Each set of aluminum snowshoes come with a pair of heel lifts.
What is a heel lift? It's an optional feature for your snowshoes, which adds 2 inches of platform under your heel and makes climbing more efficient, comfortable (by reducing the strain on your calf muscles), and improves traction.
If you're located in the mountains, and you're snowshoeing up long, sustained climbs, a heel lift might be exactly what the doctor ordered. If you're spending most of your time on flatter or rolling terrain, you probably don't need the heel lift.
