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.
