Whether you're buying snowshoes as a curiosity, as decor, or as footwear, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better, more traditional pair than these L.L. Bean 100th Anniversary Snowshoes ($330). Crafted by hand, the frame of the shoes is made from steambent white ash that's specifically selected to ensure the grain runs the full length of the shoe, while the decking is handlaced using top-grain rawhide that's been varnished to seal out moisture and add rigidity. They haven't changed much since their 1941 debut, but then again, neither has snow. [via]

body tree in a pinch.
