Last Christmas, I received a pair of Wassookeag Moccasins–the lined triple sole canoe moc in deerskin. The passing of time gives us a chance to revisit that purchase and catch a glimpse into how well the shoes have held up.
In a word, they’ve performed splendidly. Over the course of the year, they’ve molded to the contours of my feet. They’ve been worn both in domestic situations and for outings near and far. And, deployed on several dozen occasions, they’ve shown no sign of succumbing to wear and tear.
In the more than a year and a half that we’ve been at this, Frannie and I have been privileged to learn about so many companies, large and small, contributing to a renaissance of American manufacturing.
Among those, Dexter, Maine’s Wassookeag Moccasins (an exemplary example of dedication to craftsmanship) has a special place. Their moccasins can be made with a variety of leathers and colors and, because the shoes aren’t produced until you order them, they can accommodate people with different sized feet (like yours truly) without any additional charge.
