We Were The First

Laurentian Chief used to sell this style of moose hide moccasin boot for women only. Many moons ago, one of our customer's asked us if we could get them a pair of these traditional style moccasins for men. We asked Laurentian Chief hesitantly, and to our surprise they agreed. They've been making these men's leather moccasins boots for us for years now and we can barely keep them in stock. These Native style boots are truly our best sellers. We have a hard time keeping them on the shelf.

You name the event or activity and these moose hide boots seem to be the versatile boot that men want to wear. Once our customers try a pair of our leather moccasin boots there is no turning back for them. When their 137597's eventually wear out, because they are literally worn everywhere, our faithful and happy customers come back to us and buy the exact same pair of boots as replacements. There's really no other style quite like them so when it comes to moccasin boots that go with everything and can be worn for every occasion, the 137597 quickly become men's favourite footwear of choice when it comes to repeat purchases.

It's How They Look

These men's ankle boots offer authentic style and comfort while sporting a classic and traditional Native Indian look. They are ankle high and feature a Native American style braid around the top. They are decorated with stylish fringes around the top, footbed and vamp. These men's moccasin boots have rawhide leather laces for tightening and are hand made from high quality, genuine moose hide leather in a cork tan color.

It's How They're Made

Laurentian Chief has come out with a new design for these fantastic moccasins. The stitch line is now recessed into the crepe sole as to not expose the stitching to the outdoor elements. These new changes will greatly extend the life and sole of these highly sought after boots. They are 100% Canadian crafted and the vamp is hand stitched in Quebec, Canada where Laurentian Chief has been making Native American style footwear for over 70 years. The leather and padded insole makes these moccasin boots both durable and extremely comfortable.

    Hello good people

    I’m keen to buy one or maybe two pairs of these great looking boots.

    I’m not 100% sure if my exact/approx boot size, this is mainly because there are so many manufacturers and countries producing shoes and they all (most), have there own sizing method.

    I’m a somewhere between a 13-15 size.

    If I be was to measure heal to toe and from side to side, would you be able to figure out the best size fit for me within your moccasin boot range?

    Hope to here from you soon.

    I’m located in Perth, Western Australia, if I was handy to you, I’d call in and purchase there and then.

    I just received mine and absolutely love them. The comfort is unmatched with any boot or shoe I have ever had! Softest leather ever. Had to add insoles due to my high arches, but will be put new soles on once these are worn and will buy a mew pair if they deteriorate over time. Might be the best birthday present I’ve ever received

    I have had the best experience with this company. When I ordered these moccasins I was aware of the 2 weeks wait. When I emailed them and asked for a status update they always responded right away and asked if I was still willing to wait. I can speak very highly of this company and their moccasin I purchased! I usually wear a 8 1/2 and ordered a 8 as suggested and they are perfect! So soft inside I don’t feel right wearing socks with them.

    Thank you again for remarkable customer service and a 10 star product. Ordering another pair soon!

    In response to: Bob

    Unfortunately, we don’t have anything comparable in a wide, unless you choose the earthing style, (you can find on which would naturally be wider.

    BUT, the leather sizes such as 13 can often accommodate a wide foot.

    Feel free to send us your foot measurements, and we can see if they would work for you.
