We consider soft, 100% cotton lampwick bindings the ideal binding for traditional snowshoes when using soft footwear like our snowshoe moccasins (note: this style of binding tends to slip off a stiff boot – try our leather bindings for use with boots). Lampwick bindings are extremely simple and lightweight, and allow you, with a little practice, to slip in and out of your snowshoes hands-free! Bindings are pre-cut to an appropriate length and sealed with beeswax. Bindings come with instructions.
- We use 50″ lampwick for ourselves on our moccasins, and thus consider this to be “standard” length for soft footwear;
- Those with large feet (Mens 11+) should select “Large” (60″) length;
- Though we haven’t tried it ourselves, we’ve had others report success using lampwick on stiff boots. XL (70″) may be required for stiff boots.
