There are few things quite as exhilarating as blitzing down a mountain at high speeds. But, most of the time, hitting the slopes means you have to grab a special pair of boots and a bulky board or some unwieldy skis. And that frustrating hauling can take some of the fun out of impulsively hitting a couple runs. Well, with the Snowfeet Mini Skis, all that frustration melts away.
What makes these winter accessories so great primarily is their portability and versatility. The Snowfeet, you see, can turn just about any normal winter boots into a pair of downhill skis. All you have to do is strap them on like you would normal ski or snowboard bindings. But, since they’re so small, you don’t have to fuss with carrying too much around with you. And the action on them is kind of like a combination of skiing and ice skating – you can carve downhill or skate across flatter surfaces, like those used in cross-country skiing. Their durable plastic construction is rated for use in sub-zero temperatures, they fit most shoes between sizes 7-12, and they run around $134 a pair.
