Snowshoes - I know nothing

I went snowshoeing in Steamboat this year. It went around a golf course, so was easy, about 2-3 miles, and was mostly flat or very gentle inclines.

I'm starting to consider snowshoeing if I am totally prohibited from skiing next season. I think that I will take a lesson or two if I decide to try it, and will then decide the type of equipment to purchase. It looks peaceful and less risky than downhill or even cross country skiing.
After trying it in rental equipment, I'd suggest you get / use your own boots that have an excellent fit. In 2021 I did a snowshoeing afternoon at Beaver Creek. Snow was nice, no ice, but the rental boots didn't fit well (size 8 too small, 8.5, too big. Ugh.) So I felt like I wasn't making any headway, just slogging along the trail. Irritated w myself that I didn't insist on wearing my own waterproof hiking boots, instead of being talked into the full gear rental package.
Hub and I might take a wintry trip together at the end of the year (he doesn't ski) so I offered to go snowshoeing with him.

I actually have a couple of pairs of boots/hiking shoes that might work, and will definitely bring them along.
