No URL that I know of.
The company is
Ramer - Alpine Research,
Boulder CO, 303-499-4466
For winter snowshoeing I would use a different type of shoe, and the footprint would depend on the load I was carrying, the terrain and the snow conditions.
Shoes like the Ramer or the MSR work best in late season after the snow has firmed up a bit. For winter travel I find skis much preferable to snowshoes, especially in the mountains.
All IMHO, YMMV
