These hand-knitted straw snowshoes were used in Nagano Prefecture.
The thick soles are a logical detail to protect the feet from snow and the cold ground.
They are in used condition. Perhaps made out in late 20c.
Straw has been used for roofing, shoes, and many other things in Japan since ancient times.
