Hey All: In a couple of my posts in the past Ive mentioned some moccasins I own that were very unique and one of a kind. Originally I didnt post because I didnt have access, then I did but I forgot, and now Ive been inactive and sidetrack-in other words my own procrastinating fault. Heres the background info. My uncle who has lived one hell of a life, Semi Pro Tennis and Baseball player. Medic in the Army where he learned how stitch/sew. Vagabond Hitchhiker, crab fisherman, logger, worked on a legal pot farm, moved to Washington State and built by hand by himself a log cabin on the side of a mountain with solar power. Worked at a leather factory at one point where the let him take scraps home. Combined with his sewing/stitching he learned in the military he started making different objects on his own. Now hes done it off and on for years and now its his sole line of work. He buys huge sheets of veg or brained tanned hides, cuts them by hand, and sews them all by hand (all by himself, no business but his own two hands and tools) either using sinew or a synthetic sinew. He has multiple varieties from boots to knee high boots and slippers. Many color and hide options. Deer, elk, buffalo, bison, rarely moose. Many different kinds of sheep skin linings or leather. Bottoms can be double leather, all mine are treaded so I can wear them outside. Its rubber cement and tire tread. As long as hes alive he will redo bottoms for you or reline the inners. So without further procrastination here is my collection. The first pair I bought on my own as an adult are this Chocolate Brown Elk Hide with a very industrial type of sheepskin designed for warmth over comfort. These are about 6 years old and have darkened due to my using some leather products on them. As his hides are veg tanned or brain tanned but have 0 protectant/shine/gloss/finish. My second pair are these black buffalo or american bison with a golden deer tongue and side liner with a golden sheepskin bottom.These are about 4 years old and have faded a bit from the sun, have not had anything ever used on them. Next I mixed it up ever so slightly and did this variation on what is obviously my favorite style. These are "saddle" color buffalo/american bison with a split seam back and multi color multi thickness sheepskin lining. Lastly I went with gold american bison with chocolate brown elk tongue and side liner with golden sheepskin liner. These are about two years old and have faded enormously in the sun. I should express I wear these ALLLL the time. In all but the wettest as not water proof or in snow. Otherwise Im always in these guys. A couple group shots to see the bottoms and stitch-work better.
