Bears-paws is the term used by the members of the northern mountain clans to refer to the real-world snowshoe.[1] They are made with bent wood and leather strips and are lashed onto the bottoms of boots. Some members of the clans even have bear-paws made for their horses.[1] Bear-paws are also used beyond the Wall by the Free Folk.[2]
