I had high expectations for these buffalo hide triple sole moccasins. I expected superior materials and workmanship based on Wassokeag's reputation. I was not disappointed. What I did not expect was the incredible fit and instant comfort. These replaced a pair f(rom another manufacturer) I have had for more than ten years. The Wassokeag moccasins instantly were more comfortable that the ones broken in for years. They are the most comfortable footwear, of any type, that I have ever had. Not cheap, but worth every penny!
