Care

We recommend applying a suede protector before taking your new shoes into the elements, but avoid non-suede accents. If scuffs happen, no problem. Grab a suede brush or toothbrush and gently rub scuffs away. A suede brush or toothbrush works on watermarks and stains too - simply brush away the marks with water.

For tougher stains, add a dab of suede cleaner or baby shampoo. Let your suede air-dry overnight. Stick white tissue paper inside your shoes to make sure your suede keeps its form while it dries. 

Check out more tips and tricks on our  product care page.

Just like I remembered!

I had a pair like this back in high school, almost 30 years ago. About 5 years ago I started looking for a pair. I had no idea how hard it would be to find them. I took a trip to MA and went along the Mohawk Trail stopping at every Native American shop. I realized all the moccasins had a sole on the bottom. Then I realized there were many shades of brown but not this light one. I would look but never find the ones I wanted. I JUST happened to see an ad pop up and I thought, aahh what the heck, try it. THERE THEY WERE! My beautiful high school moccasins. The same color, all leather, no soles. When I put them on....... HEAVEN! Just like I remembered. Thank you for having "real" moccasins!!! [...]

Long Trail Thruhiking boots!

I bought these shoes for my second thru-hike of the 486 mile Colorado Trail. Due to the nature of the soft soles, I ended up wearing through several pairs of these on my trip, but it was only a few holes in the soles. The uppers held together amazingly well and only once did the stitching come apart that holds the soles and the uppers together. I was able to get about 170 miles of rugged, backcountry walking out of each pair and I was able to save every pair for resoling. I experienced none of the problems with my knees that I have experienced on long hikes in the past. I am incredibly happy with my decision to wear minimal footwear on this trip, and these moccasins were the best, most affordable choice I could have made. Even going through three pairs of these on my trip, I still spent less money on shoes than most of my peers on the trail. I will be using them again on my next long walk! [...]

LOVE THEM!!!

I love these shoes! They're so comfortable. I ordered a 9.5 (which is my regular size). They are true to size, except for the fact that they're a little snug at first. Keep in mind though that they are leather and they will stretch out. They're super cute too! They go with so many outfits and are easy to put on and take off. [...]
