Do-It-Yourself & Custom-Made Leather Barefoot Shoes

We hand-make unique moccasins and boots or, teach you how to make them.
Either way, what makes them stand out is that, they are designed to be adapted to the unique morphology of each person.

Just like a second skin...

Our moccasins are like barefoot or minimalist shoes, 100% in leather. In fact, they truly are like a second skin that can be worn on all occasions and on all grounds. If you are looking for natural footwear with high sensory feedback, you're at the right place.

Custom-Made Moccasins

Our Barefoot-Moccasins are Extra-Light and Soft, but Strong and Durable

We work with the most prestigious quality of french bull leather for its softness and thickness at the same time. This leather is remarkable for its comfort to wear on the skin and for its high resistance to water and wear.

Unlike most commercial shoes, all our moccasins can be easily repaired. For instance, if the sole starts wearing out, it can be easily strengthened by simply gluing another layer of leather or rubber underneath (which can be done at home with our instructions). Therefore, with good care, these moccasins can withstand years, if not decades!

Why not making shoes yourself?

With our DIY video tutorials and kits, even beginners in leather craftsmen or sewing can confidently achieve well-finished barefoot shoes within a day.

The step-by-step videos and PDF tutorial will precisely and clearly guide you through the process of making these soft-soled shoes with just a few simple hand tools.

Our wide range of printable patterns will enable any eager craftsmen to quickly start making them for their own and their family members.

What do I need to start moccasin-making?

You could order only the tutorial and patterns in digital format, and/or the leather and tools to go along with it. Our starter kits are special bundles with all you need to get started in one click (tutorial, patterns, leather, and tools together).

To make good-looking and comfortable moccasins, you need to find very soft leather that will easily pucker around the toes. Ideally, it should be thick as well (1.8 to 3 mm thick / 4 to 6 oz leather).We know that such leather is not that easy to find, especially when you can't go to a leather shop in person and/or that you are a novice.

To save you from the struggle of sourcing leather on your own, we offer to ship leather worldwide. You could order just enough to make one pair or larger pieces of leather at a more economical price.
