Let's take a closer look at the different dances involved in most Pow Wows.
Traditional moccasins are extremely comfortable and stylish to wear. However due to the fact that the laces are made of leather, many people have a hard time tying them together in a way that looks good and stays secure. It can be frustrating to have to constantly tie your leather moccasins up, when one of the reasons you likely enjoy wearing them is because they are slip on shoes. It can also be a hassle to constantly have to retie your child's moccasins if they are constantly coming undone with all the wear and tear kids do, running and crawling around. The good news is there are 3 different ways you can try tying your moccasin laces that are less likely for them to come undone.
American Indian handcrafted moccasins have never been more alive or dynamic for your feet. They continue to be one of the most gratifying and exciting forms of footwear to wear because authentic Native Indian Moccasins combine age-old tradition, innovation and talent.

Moccasins allow you to look fashionable and stylish all the while, giving your feet ultimate comfort. 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.
Traditional moccasins are known as a timeless shoe because of their classic design that never goes out of style and the free-spirited historical culture they represent. Natural moccasins were worn by Native American Indians long before Christopher Columbus ever discovered North America so they could be considered our Nation's 'first' footwear. Native American moccasins are part of our beautiful heritage.
Moccasin shoes, wether driving or loafer style moccasins can come with a crepe or rubber sole. This blog outlines the differences between the two different sole options we offer at Leather Moccasins. We hope after reading the benefits and disadvantages of each, you'll be better equipped to choose the type of sole that will suit your uses and preferences the best.
