FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTIONS

What size do I buy?

We have found that most customers purchase moccasins in their regular shoe size.

If you wear a half size shoe: When you find a style you like and notice it is available only in full sizes, our rule of thumb is to go down the half size. Most of the styles offered in full sizes are made with very soft, supple, and giving leathers. Many customers that have shopped in our store state they buy their moccasins, especially the Moosehide and Deerskin, to "fit like a glove", finding that they will give in just the right places to offer them an unparalleled feel and comfort.

Of course, we can not guarantee that following these recommendations will result in a perfect fit — only that they work for the vast majority of our customers.

What type of care do my Moccasins need ?

You will find that your moccasins do not require any more attention or care that any other shoe. Most customers, if they decide to take any special care, simply spray them with a leather, rain and stain repellent. The spray protectant will not affect the color of the moccasin ( when you initially spray the moccasin it may appear to darken the leather and sheepskin styles but they will return to their original color when dry ).

Cleaning?

Spot cleaning usually can be done with a mild detergent and water. Try a dab of liquid detergent on a damp cloth and rub in with circular motions. Rinse cloth, wipe excess soap off the moccasin and let air dry. In extreme cases suede moccasins can be washed in the washing machine on gentle cycle. Do not put them in the dryer, let them air dry instead with something placed inside the moccasin so it will retain its shape.
