All footwear eventually wears out. We tell our customers that if you’re hard on traditional footwear, you’ll be hard on our moccasins. If you get good wear out of your normal footwear, you’ll also get good wear out of our soft-soled moccasins. In terms of manufacture, we typically reserve the thickest parts of the hide for use on our soles. That, in and of itself, provides longer wear. Furthermore, if you trade up to a premium leather such as buffalo you’ll extend the wearing life because those hides are thicker and, in our opinion, more rugged than cowhide. If you drag or scuff your feet when you walk, you’ll get shorter life out of moccasins. If you wear a pair of moccasins as your only shoe day in and day out, you’ll get shorter wear than you would if you rotate them with the rest of your footwear.
