THE LEATHER - Strong, top-grain deer hide! Measures 4-5 oz. 1.5-2.5mm thick. Every hide is different. The variation of markings, thickness, and shades gives the leather character that you could never find in mass-produced clones! Deer hide is tough, lightweight, and thinner than moose or buffalo. Great for comfort in hot weather, and added sensitivity for a barefoot feel. If you would like heavier leather, check out my moose or buffalo boots!
THE CONSTRUCTION - I don't use thread. The boots are stitched together with thick lacing I cut myself, as they have been for centuries. I make most sizes for men and women. If you need something special, just ask! I use one modern upgrade; paracord laces. Leather laces wear out and get broken more often. If you would rather have real leather laces, just ask!
THE COLORS - The color of available leather is always changing. I do my best to stock beiges, light browns, and dark browns. Keep in mind that every hide is unique. Finding exact colors can be difficult. I can usually order most other colors relatively quickly. Don't be afraid to send me a message if you have a particular color in mind and I'll find it.
SIZING - Because moccasins are soft-soled and leather stretches, getting your exact size usually isn't necessary. Keep in mind that if you buy your exact size you're likely to have extra room above the toes. This can be great if you plan to wear socks or you don't like restrictive shoes. However, if you prefer a snug fit more like a leather glove, and could be wearing these barefoot I would suggest ordering one size down. I can make custom size adjustments so don't be afraid to ask.
I can also provide:
- leather laces instead of paracord
- custom sizing for a superior, personal fit
- other leathers like elk, moose, yak, and other
- custom colors and thicknesses
- linings of sheepskin, wool, fleece, or flannel
- tough, rubberized outer soles for rugged use
Let me design your custom pair!
Everything I make is unique because every hide is unique. There may be variations in colors and construction. If you have something specific in mind, just drop me a message!
