Dakota Moccasin is an amazing shoe that is built for the outdoors. The leather uppers are a naked hide, which means there is no additional coating from the tannery to smooth out colors, leaving the leather to patina and gain character as it is worn.
Uppers constructed of thick and strong, yet soft and supple, naked leather
Moccasins are intended for natural outdoor environments. Surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, etc. may cause premature wear. Moccasin's smooth soles may be slippery when wet and/or on smooth surfaces.
Our leather may feature scars, brand marks, and other imperfections. This is normal, as leather is a natural product and these marks show how the animals lived. We believe these marks are beautiful and add great character to our items. We will not use pieces that the structural integrity is questionable.
