Before checking out more honest reviews, let's answer the most frequently asked questions to get all the important information.
Are Snowfeet any good?
Snowfeet are not just good, they are amazing. They are very light and portable, so you can take them anywhere with you. Snowfeet are made out of very durable material therefore you can truly rely on them, plus their fantastic feature is that you can put them on your regular winter shoes or snowboard boots.
Are Snowfeet easy?
Snowfeet are very easy to learn for hockey players, roller-bladers and ice-skaters since they combine skiing and skating. However, anybody can learn how to use them. As with any new sport, it will take some time and effort but the learning curve is really fast and you will enjoy the process since Snowfeet are a hell of fun.
How do you wear Snowfeet?
Just like the regular long skis, you will attach them to your feet. However, thanks to the revolutionary bindings, you can put Snowfeet on your normal winter shoes or snowboard boots which means that you don't need to carry your heavy ski boots.
Can you skate with Snowfeet?
With Snowfeet you can skate on snow. They are not regular skates so don't take them onto your local frozen pond. However, you can take them anywhere else - snowparks, ski slopes, hiking trails - wherever your heart will take you.
Do Snowfeet work in powder?
Snowfeet are not very suitable for powder, since you could not slide on it properly. You will enjoy them the most on a harder surface.
Do you wax Snowfeet?
To ensure the ultimate experience, you should wax the base of Snowfeet regularly. To keep your turns sharp and fast, tune the metal edges of your Snowfeet, as well. You can use either a handy tuner or just visit your local ski shop and have them tuned. A good thing is also not to leave your Snowfeet wet after you come home from a fun day on the slopes.
Maybe you are wondering whether it is difficult to actually ride these short skis and whether you need some special skills to enjoy the ride. Well, there is no better way to find out but to try it for yourself. But before you do that, the opinions of a little more experienced skiers might come handy.
Michael wrote us his experience and recommendations about Snowfeet:
"So much fun.....but also a lot of work at first. It is very similar to ice skating. I would say start out on a more beginner run to get the hang of it. They pick up speed rather quickly and if it's too much of a slope it's hard to get the edges to grab and stop. I'm sure I'll get better over time. It's not hard to learn, and easy where it's flat, but when it's sloped quite a bit -- get ready. Stay on the groomed/packed area, the powder doesn't help. It's like learning everything all over again, but very rewarding. I'm looking forward to taking them out again. I highly recommend them, you won't be disappointed."
As with everything new you are about to learn, it takes some determination and persistence, but with all the fun throughout the way, it's going to be an exciting experience.

The Quality Comes First
We are proud that we have developed an inovative product with excellent quality that has earned its place among sport gear and it's becoming a new booming experience on the slopes. As approved by our lovely customers, of course.
As far as quality of our Snowfeet goes, Claudette has shared with us her first impressions when she got her first pair:
"Impressed! Kudos to the creators! I am very impressed with the quality of the product. The materials appears durable, easy to put on, I tried it on with my winter boots. It came with a bag, extra straps, and notes and reviews. Though I have not tried them on the snow yet, I have to say it will be pretty fun, can’t wait to try them on! I rated 5 stars because the materials of the Snowfeet is very impressive. I did not make a wrong choice buying Snowfeet and I am planning to buy another pair soon!"
A Bit Of TLC Will Pay Off
So now you know there's nothing to fear, you can just put them on and hit the slope down! Well, actually, there is one thing though... As the Snowfeet have inherited a bit more from ski than skates, we recommend to treat them as ski, which means to wax them from time to time.
Andrew has tried his pair for the first time without waxing and things didn't go quite as planned...
"Better Next Time. Received my Snowfeet in just 5 days time from overseas. Very pleased with that service. The Snowfeet fit perfectly on my winter boots, very snug, very comfortable. I purchased them for Cross Country Skate Skiing and tried them for the first time today. Should have waxed them prior to use. We had a large, wet snowfall yesterday, unusual for Northern Colorado as we are known for dry powder. The wet snow stuck to the bottoms after gliding just a few feet, which was frustrating. Going to wax them and try again next Saturday. Hopefully that will do the trick."
Enjoy To Be Free
However, once you get skiskating under your skin a bit, the real fun begins. Imagine you've got no excessive weight stuck on your feet and at the same time both of your legs can move freely. Isn't that fabulous?
