"Smoke" Toddler Moccasin by Itasca - This buff-colored leather is so soft — the buffalo hides have been milled to be supple and cozy, and exhibit a fantastic natural grain pattern. They are the next best thing to barefoot in terms of the baby learning to balance when starting to walk and also for musculoskeletal development. They make terrific gifts and are perfect for baby showers - a gift that almost certainly will not show up in duplicate. Did we say they're cute? (see size measurements in the Artist tab)
Sizes are based on the length of baby's feet:
--Small fits up to Infant Size 0/1, or up to 3.5" in length

--Large fits feet up to Toddler Size 5, or up to 4.75" in length
--Extra Large fits up to Toddler Size 6.5, or up to 5.5" in length
Itasca Moccasin was formed in 1986 in the tiny community of Lake George, Minnesota, located in the northwest quadrant of the state just east of Itasca State Park, which is famous for being the headwaters of the Mississippi River. The original store was a rustic, shopworn souvenir stand that attracted tourists driving to and from the park.
The founder, Mardel Bents, learned the moccasin-making business after having been sold a set of used equipment from a local craftsman. She worked during winter months making moccasins in preparation for the upcoming summer tourist season. As summers progressed, stock on hand dwindled until new pairs were made over the next winter season.
Over the years, Bents and her sole employee (who is now our Factory Store manager) perfected their moccasin-making techniques and turned out beautifully made, premium quality handcrafted moccasins; they also carved out a successful niche business doing custom pattern making for customers with hard-to-fit feet.
Though notoriously thrifty when sourcing leathers, Bents had the foresight to go beyond the use of basic cowhide and also sought out premium game hides like buffalo, elk and moose, as well as super plush sheepskin, used for slippers and baby mocs.
In April 2012, Bents retired and sold the business to Paul Kirkman who rebranded the company as Itasca Leathergoods to extend its identity beyond its moccasin-making roots and focused on creating a more fashion-forward vibe that was more closely aligned with its heritage and premium quality craftsmanship.
