The introduction of ski equipment series is created to facilitate snow friends to buy equipment and understand the core characteristics of equipment.

Each article describes and highly summarizes the characteristics of the equipment in one sentence or one word, which is summed up from the author's experience and will be publicly expressed after the speaker's approval.

The core of the purchase of double snowshoes is - heel
First, the difference between men and women
Men and women are separated. Due to size issues, women can wear men's shoes, but men cannot wear women's shoes. The same hardness value, the hardness of women's shoes is much lower.
Second, the choice of size (the most important)
1. Length selection, use a foot gauge to measure. The feet are generally of different lengths, so choose the longest foot. 
2. Width. The width of the shoe last of the golden rooster is divided into 92, 95, 97, 98, 100, 102 and 104.
Athletes wear small shoes and hard shoes, generally with a width of 92-95. The toes cannot be straightened in the shoes, and they are in the state of being pulled down. Most of the people use 102, and those with thin feet choose 100.
Shoe size. After wearing the shoe a few times, the inner liner will be compacted, and it will become a little bigger. It is common to buy too large, which affects the glide. It is recommended that you try it on (simply put, choose the same size or a smaller size as the sneakers you wear). If you haven't tried it on, it is recommended not to buy it, even if it is a brand that has been worn. Shoes of a brand of the same size and different series will have a half-size difference in length, and the foot feel is also different. The difference between different brands is even greater.
How to try it on? Very important, or a lot of people won't try it on. After wearing it, it is very tight, it is very tight, but there is no special place where the feet are squatted, and it can be held for half an hour. This size is suitable (the second is that when you put on the shoes, the front of the toes is in contact with the inner bladder, but Do not push your feet, lean forward and press down, separate the toes from the inner bladder).
If the foot is fat and the instep is high, although the length is suitable, you still can't wear it, choose one size larger, not bigger, or choose another series. For people with thick calves, Jinji has a special series.
3. The procedure of buying shoes. First determine the size of the largest foot with a protractor, choose 3-4 different series of the same number, try on 3-4 pairs of shoes, and experience which series is more suitable for your foot type, which is the most comfortable (it’s not right, it’s relative ). This is the size if it fits. If it feels a little out of place, you can fine-tune one size larger and one smaller. This is how you choose the best shoes. Buying shoes requires a lot of trying on.
Buying shoes is more troublesome than buying boards. You can look online to see if there is any relevant information, and I actually saw someone saying that they want to buy shoes that are two sizes larger. Lao Kan said that a snow friend with 27.5 feet finally insisted on changing to 28.5 snowshoes. I don't know if it has anything to do with this. Shen, who went to Beidahu, bought 41 snowshoes with 40 feet and complained about the size of the shoes. I said why should I buy this size, he said 40 was tight, and 41 felt appropriate at the time, so it felt unreliable what! I felt the same way myself. I wore snowshoes that were two sizes bigger, but I didn't feel that much at the time. My feet moved in the shoes when I was skating. The next day I tried the shoes that were one size larger, and finally I decided to wear the right shoes. , although it felt a little tight at the time, but it was just right when sliding. Therefore, it is very important to try shoes correctly! Novices must listen to the opinions of salesmen who know skiing, and salesmen should also discourage snow friends. The correct choice should not be based on feeling. The feeling of buying shoes for the first time is very unreliable!
Choose shoes, listen to the protractor for the length, try the width, 100 for those with thin feet, 102 for general candidates, and 104 for those with fat feet.
I want to say here that the entire equipment series introduction is based on the opinions of industry insiders and the author's experience. They are all original, not plagiarized from the Internet. I will try to be as detailed as possible to convey the correct point of view to Xueyou.
3. Hardness
The hardness should be suitable for your own level. Beginners should wear softer snowshoes, 60-80 degrees is recommended, and the snow field is generally 70 degrees, which is easy to put on and take off, but it is difficult to wear shoes with high hardness. Buy medium and high-level hardness, most buy 90-100. (You can also wear it a little softer, so that your feet will feel comfortable, and if the shoes are hard, it will be uncomfortable after a day). Athletes are generally 130-150 degrees.
Most women's shoes choose 70-80.
4. Classification of snowshoes
The classification of snowshoes is the same as that of double boards, and the technical characteristics are in line with the same type of snowboards, but the difference is not as big as that of snowboards. Ordinary snow friends can use it. For the second pair, you can choose different series, such as those with better warmth retention and different hardness.
1. Competitive series, pay attention to good wrapping, hard inner liner, not easy to release force, and good power transmission. Comfort is a little less.
2. All-round series, comfortable, wrapping is not bad, thicker, better warmth retention.
3. Freestyle, the shoes are special, with three steel wire buckles, which are characterized by comfort, cushioning function, poor power transmission, not suitable for snow trails, and special brands.
4. Wild snow series, with wrapping and support, walking mode, soft rubber sole, non-slip, suitable for walking.

Five, try on
For new shoes, it is recommended to try them on several times at home, for 15 minutes each time, and hold them for a while.
6. Storage and maintenance
Wipe the outer shell of the snowshoe clean, fasten the buckle, put some paper on the toes to prevent deformation, and store it dry.
If the inner liner is dirty, Lao Kan does not recommend washing it, but take it out to dry. After washing the inner liner, it will become thinner and the package will become worse. The insole can be washed.
sock. It is recommended to bring two pairs, one pair for skiing, and another pair after skiing, which is also cleaner.
Seven, warm measures
The temperature in Chongli is low, and the feet are frozen. You can use shoe covers to keep warm and prevent the shoes from getting into the snow. I didn't feel the cold at -23 degrees down the mountain with shoe covers on. Thermal stickers can also play a role in keeping warm, but they need to be worn in shoes, which are not environmentally friendly. I still think the shoe covers are good.
