Town View Leather Moccasins

Started this thread to put the full spotlight on these amazing moccasins. These are the Deer Skin Lined, Honey color.
Finally got my right size fitting correctly. I would recommend ordering a half size smaller than your normal shoe size. If they are still loose, as they were with me, don’t forget your can tighten the laces.

Been wearing these for about an hour now and they are really comfortable so far. Without socks. Feet don’t feel sweaty. Super soft leather that doesn’t need any “break-in” time.

I will periodically update this thread with photos as I wear them.

*full disclosure the photos are of a different size shoe that has since been exchanged for a smaller size. But they look exactly the same.

That's a pretty nice looking pair of mocs - my old Cabela's are nearing the end of a pretty good run (10-15 years but that's cool weather wear only). Jason how close would you say the fit would be with socks? Would you say the sizing process is easy? I hate mailing stuff back ..

I would order a half size down regardless of socks or no socks. But with socks the half size should be just right. Without socks I tightened up the laces and they are A-OK!

But, in the event it’s just not right then the return process is easy peasy. They are really nice people. I’ve exchanged a few emails with them.

We exchanged Christmas ideas several days ago, and this very pair of Town View Mocs were on my list. Your pics are even better than those of their site. You now have me drooling, thinking of ways to move these up on the list!

Been wearing them pretty much all day barefoot. My feet are not sweating, but they do have that "I been in a pair of shoes all day" feeling. Especially with the contact with leather all day. It's hard to explain. Not sticky so to speak or wet/moist in any regard, but like a...clammy feeling I guess.

Also I notice the laces are leaving an indent on my feet. Doesn't hurt, not a blister, and I don't even notice it until I take the shoes off and can see it. I might try to loosen the laces a tad. But IMO, not a big deal since it's not a source of pain or blister or anything but an indention that goes away after you take the shoes off.

So not really complaining about them because they are still comfortable after a day of wearing them. Just something to be aware of for you guys ordering them.

I've always bought "fluffy" lined slippers for that very reason. Even so, I wear socks more often than not. The only thing I wear without socks, is sandals. Even they give me that same feeling, and I'm glad to take them off after a few hours.

So yeah, great looking slippers, but I personally couldn't do the no socks thing with 'em.
 
I like the idea of a somewhat loose fitting, so that there is a possibility of wearing them without socks for brief periods of time and with socks for longer periods of time.

Winter has not arrived yet, but I will be curious how warm they will feel on cool floors. Whether the leather footbed will insulate as well as rubber.

I previously owned some leather Mocs and they were actually better than any other type of slipper I've owned. The leather warmed up faster than soles of other materials and insulated just fine.

Not the heart of winter here yet but I’ll keep ya posted. Just FYI, this is off their website: Our double sole moccasins are really "triple" soles because we put an extra layer of leather between the moccasin and the stitched on double sole for added comfort.

So triple sole. And they say the soles are a tougher Bull Hide leather that is thicker too. AND, if you get the deer skin lined - well that’s just another layer of protection from those bitter cold floors!
 
Got mine today and I'm wearing them now. I'm an 11 and I ordered the 10 1/2 and it's a perfect fit.
I intended to wear these with no socks, and if I wanted to use thick socks, the 11 might have been a better choice. I could obviously loosen the laces as well.
I don't know yet if these will loosen up over time, but as is, I could wear normal socks with them if I wanted to - but I don't want to, so... I'm good to go.
Very comfortable, soft and supple but obviously substantial and well made.
 
I know the concept and history of moccasins but I would never have thought that you still get shoes that have an upper for a sole…

How on earth do the last when everything is tarmac and cobblestones?

I have some proper deerskin Lederhosen and know that they will last 2-3 lifetimes but shoes?
