Vibram soles can be added to your moccasins for regular outdoor wear and are the most durable option for adding longevity to your moccasins.
Soles are cut from a sheet of Vibram sole sheeting and glued with an industrial shoe glue. They are 1/4’ thick and are flexible. However they are not a good option if you are looking for a barefoot feel.
I have Vibram soles added by a local cobbler. He operates his business from his heart, so your moccasins will only ever be handled with love. He will match the soles to your moccasin hide colour choice unless otherwise requested.
As with crepe, I cannot give an exact estimate on how long your soles will last. It all depends on how, where, how often they are worn, what types of surfaces, how hard an individual is on their footwear etc.
Please expect 4-6 weeks before moccasins are shipped. This is an estimated timeframe. Please remember that every pair of moccasins his hand cut, assembled, packaged and shipped by me. I am often working on several orders at a time in addition to being a mother of three with two homelearners at home with me. Life has many unexpected and unknown circumstances that come up and may cause unexpected delays, and I want to ensure that I am giving each pair the time, energy and care needed and deserved.
Vibram soles may add additional time as it will depend on how busy the cobbler is and how many pairs I am bringing him.
