turn your shoes into mini skis with snowfeet, a combination of skis and skates

self-proclaimed the ultimate evolution of skis, the snowfeet are portable ski-shoe attachments that turn your boots into mini skis. they are a combination of skiing and skating that aims to translate inline skating to snow simply by attaching them to your winter shoes or snowboard boots. this combination of skis and skates brings the thrill of skating to the slopes.

snowfeet were created and are manufactured in the czech republic by two college friends — michael podesva and zbynek suba. snowfeet can be used both on and off the slopes. they are extremely light and small, so you can fit them in any bag and carry them around. the size is universal meaning that one pair fits all. the recommended shoe sizes are between 7-12 US/35-46 EU. snowfeet are made of highly durable plastic material with straps and buckles, ensuring they will be with you for a long time, even after long periods of use. what is more, they can take you to places, like small forest paths, where you wouldn’t get with skis or snowboard. And compared to skis, they are quite inexpensive.

snowfeet are made of highly durable and lightweight fiberglass reinforced material. metal ski edges enable easy stopping. heel brake lets you slow down. adjustable bindings let you attach snowfeet to any shoe. use them for downhill on and off the slopes, in snowparks, through forest trails, and even for cross-country skiing.

kickstarter: here

  • I had a pair of these in the 70ies, they were called super slider snow skates, they were a lot of fun.

  • besides the fact that there is a video of the product more than 3 years ago which begs the question why this is a kickstarter campaign there have been numerous products exactly like these and they all sufer from the same flaws. and everybody going downhill with rollerblades can tell you those. a piece of plastic for 150$ strapped to your shoe is not a good idea and is also not the “evolution of skis”

  • Reminds me of Sled Dogs (the snow skates) but they had them as part of the boots. These are a little more universal with the use of snowboard boots. From my experience you quickly realize that you want something a little longer so it’s more stable and sits higher on the snow if it isn’t hard pack. They were fun though, even with their drawbacks. I think Ski boards/snow blades got closer to what gave you more freedom (in different snow conditions) and you could still skate in them without poles.
