The use of bear paw snowshoes like these can be traced back to eastern and northern Canadian Indian peoples like the Innu. Bear paw snowshoes provided silent and efficient movement for hunting and long distance hiking in deep snow due to their shortness and width. This pair has rawhide lacing with brown and white leather bindings.
