Eva Snowshoe Wins Outdoor Retailer Innovation Award

Boulder, CO (November 27, 2018) – Crescent Moon Snowshoes was honored to accept one of only twelve awards at the inaugural Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards show at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market trade show held in Denver, CO. Crescent Moon has been widely acknowledged for their innovative use of EVA foam in snowshoes which blurs the line between traditional snowshoes and running shoes.

The innovation awards were hosted by Capital One Spark Business and A+E Networks at the Denver Convention Center and aimed to acknowledge change-makers in the industry. Thirty-two brands were chosen as finalists then judged by a panel of twenty luminaries, designers, retailers and journalists, on the basis of concept, design, functionality, originality, sustainability and impact.

“Innovation is one way the outdoor industry is going to move forward and grow. We want to excite everyone, whether they’re new to the outdoors or not. Making the entry point to the outdoors simple and accessible to everyone is at the core of what we do and value here at Crescent Moon,” says Jake Thamm, Crescent Moon’s co-founder and president. “Our intention has always been to create a snowshoe that is usable, accessible, sustainable and exciting, and we love that the word is getting out, and bringing more people outdoors. We’re honored to be acknowledged with this award, and to stand along such reputable brands with parallel missions. We don’t want to stop here, we’re going to keep pushing the snowshoe category forward.”
