    I'm going to have a Sno-Way 22 installed soon.

    Are plow shoes a good idea or are they unecessary?

    I can't say if they are good for that blade or not. What I can say, is if you search you'll find people that love shoes, people that hate them, and people that just don't use them cause they can't be bothered to.

    Myself we don't use them, find it makes for a nice push, with out them.

    But as it has been said, it's more or less personal choice.

    I like properly adjusted shoes. Adjust the shoes so they don't quite touch the ground and let the blade wear in to them. It scrape clean and you'll get longer blade life.
    On your unit I'd go with a poly wearedge, and use shoes for gravel and blacktop, no shoes sealed concrete and pavers.
