What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

The most innovative design in snowshoes since the aluminum frame, we’re excited to launch our new Eva All-Foam Snowshoe here on Kickstarter and invite you to join us in bringing it to the market this fall.

The Eva All-Foam Snowshoe
The Eva All-Foam Snowshoe

We introduced it at the most recent trade shows where it was recognized with 7 Best Gear of Show awards, and Men's Journal ranked Crescent Moon’s Eva All-Foam Snowshoe No. 1 among the most important new products from Outdoor Retailer 2017.

Eva All-Foam Snowshoes' Top Side
Eva All-Foam Snowshoes' Top Side
  • Like no other snowshoe on earth, the Eva All-Foam Snowshoe looks and feels more like a big running shoe and will make your snowshoeing experience easier and more rewarding than any other snowshoe made.  
  • It's an approachable and un-intimidating design that compels even those who have never tried snowshoeing before to get out there and enjoy the snow. 
  • It invites you to put them on and step outside, whether you're in the city park, suburban trail system, or high in the rockies. One size fits all.
  • The Eva All-Foam Snowshoe is remarkably light, has a rocker shape, (which eliminates the ubiquitous rotational hinge on all other snowshoes), and is constructed of dual-density ethyelyene-vinyl-acetate (E-V-A), which is the lightest among all kinds of out-soles, while featuring tire-tread-like lugs for amazing traction.
  • They're fun on every kind of terrain.

So you may be asking, who would buy the Eva All-Foam Snowshoe? 

The answer is anyone who loves winter, and getting out in the snow.

  • Eva All-Foam Snowshoes are for first timers to core enthusiasts
  • athletes
  • trail runners and hikers
  • dog-walkers and fitness enthusiasts
  • couples and individuals looking for outdoor activities 
  • families searching for something fun to do together
  • and for you, and just about everyone you know who loves getting out on the snow

Eva All-Foam Snowshoes are the next big thing in snowshoeing.

THE SPECS

The patent pending design features two layers of foam in a rocker shape to create a flexible, sturdy, 3 dimensional snowshoe. It's 24” x 8” x 2", this over-sized snow-sandal is as light as the word “foam” infers, and with a simple hook and loop system of straps not only goes on easily, but is secure and comfortable beyond any intuitive expectations.

The top of the all-foam snowshoe is cushioned and formed to fit the shape of your foot, providing a very comfortable sensation on even the hardest, roughest surfaces, while the bottom traction of the snowshoe is a highly durable and tough EVA composite that grips like a snow tire — with material similar to that found on football cleats.

  • Dimensions 24" long x 8.25" wide x 2" thick
  • One size available, fits Men’s shoe size 5-15
  • Weight: 3lbs, 8 ozs, per pair Dual density
  • EVA foam deck: Upper layer for cushion and rebound
  • Lower layer for structure, abrasion resistance, and traction
  • Traction: Abrasion resistant hard plastic, polymer compound
  • Binding: Reinforced rubber with 2 Velcro over foot straps
  • Heel strap buckle: Spring loaded CAM buckle
  • Adjusts to a range of sizes 5 to 15 (men’s)
  • Designed and engineered in Boulder, CO
  • Produced in Fujian, China, manufacturers of the world's best athletic shoes

Thanks for your consideration. 

We welcome your comments and suggestions as backers and we encourage you to contact us over the course of the next four to six months as we build new snowshoe molds and tooling, and go into production. 

Orders for Eva All-Foam Snowshoes have been, and continue to be collected by Crescent Moon and with a number of national retailers carrying the new product we expect to have an exciting roll-out of the new shoe. 

Join us and we'll keep you in the loop. We look forward to your participation at any level, but if you decide to go for the shoes, you'll be among the first to experience the most enjoyable snowshoeing on earth.

Thank You - Jake & Tamara

Risks and challenges

Timeline delays on product production are a real risk, but we will do our best to work through production delays and get everyone their snowshoes before the 2017-2018 Winter snow season begins in the US!
