Feast your eyes on the evolution of our very own Forest Boot design. Our Forest boots (in a separate listing) are a spin-off from the traditional tall moccasin with our hand carved leaves adorning all around the calf and Tread Light's signature hand etched leaves parading down the front of the boot.
Now we've taken the original Forest Boot and added LEATHER LEAF APPLIQUE! To further the evolution we applique falling leaves down the back of your boot and a few to the tongue and tops of your toes. The larger appliqued leaves also serve as pockets to tuck in your money or I.D., a picture of your love, an energizing crystal, or maybe even a baby pickle! We'll also hand etch a few falling leaves and scatter a few stones of our choosing in the leaves and onto the boot for added awesomeness!
The main boot comes standard with a thick chocolate brown bullhide upper (shown above in tobacco brown which is a close second in popularity to chocolate brown) and a large green leather leaf extending from the tongue and hanging over the front of the boot. The leaves hanging down around the calf vary in shapes and sizes using all of the colorful greens and rich browns we find in the forest in the warm sun of summer.
Feel free to CUSTOMIZE THE COLORS of the boot to your own unique style and personality!
Every moccasin we produce is hand cut, hand punched and hand stitched. A lot of love goes in to each pair we make. The etchings on the leaves may vary and the mixture of greens and browns we use for each boot is uniquely it's own making all of our forest boots truly one of a kind.
People often ask us how long our leather soles will last. Unfortunately, this is a very personal question and there is no simple answer. Some of our customers tell us their moccasins held up well after several years of regular use, and others find their soles wear down after only a few months. The biggest factor that determines how much life is in your soles is how you treat them. It is important to remember that soft leather wears differently than modern shoe materials. Be kind to your moccasins and they will be kind to you.
Once worn in the water and allowed to dry while on your feet, your moccasins will form to your foot for the ultimate in custom, comfortable footwear. This isn't for everyone, but we highly recommend doing this in order for your moccasins to reach their full potential in comfort. Enjoy the massage you receive from the Earth every time you walk!
