Hello folks. I just received a couple of pairs of German WW2 Snow Shoes from MD and I can't find anything on how to tie them properly. I checked Google and YouTube and turned up nothing. So if anybody can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Also which side is up on these bad boys? (See pic)

Hi,



Looking at your photo again, i have added the items to it.
A shows the underneath of the snow shoe, and B is the top where the figure would stand on it. The straps that tie the shoes to the boots, are similar to the way i have tied a set of crampons on my figure's feet.

Note: That with the shoes and straps as they come as shown, they would have to be tied off at the top of the boots, as they do not come with any buckles.

Awesome!!! Thanks Gary!! I was figuring that (B) would be the upside on those, but when in doubt, ask right? Yeah it's a bummer they don't have buckles because the Lord knows I have one heck of a time tying laces and straps on these figures. Meathook hands and Carpal Tunnel don't go together. ;) Thanks again for the info.
