When you first purchase a pair of real leather Canadian handmade moccasins they might feel a little stiff at first, before you break in the leather. Traditional style moccasin shoes and slippers fit like a dream once they’re broken in, but how do you achieve a comfortable fit even faster?
Let's take a moment to clarify some terms in the moccasin world as there are several shoes that claim to be moccasins when in fact they are not. A moccasin is a heelless shoe made completely of soft leather with the sole brought up and attached to a piece of U-shaped leather on top of the foot. Worn and designed firstly by Native Americans, traditional moccasins have evolved over time. Today, genuine leather moccasins can be found as driving moccasin shoes, soft sole slippers or hard sole loafers. Each were created for a different purpose. Let's find out the difference between the three and why you might wear them.
There are two main ways genuine leather is tanned and that is chemically, also known as chrome tanning, and vegetable tanning. A lot of people write to us about vegetable tanning vs. chemical tanning so this blog talks about these 2 different processes and their advantages and disadvantages. It is important to know how the real leather you buy is treated and tanned. People with sensitivities to chemicals should pay special attention to the tanning process of natural leather so as to protect themselves. All of our handmade leathers products and apparel are chemically tanned, but we thought we'd let our readers know about the differences between the two different processes.
