Moccasins are one of the most comfortable baby shoes around. Quick to slide on feet and looking darn cute, moccasins are a favorite among many new parents.
Let’s take a closer look at moccasins to find out if they are the right shoe for your baby.
The word moccasin is used to describe any shoe that consists of an flexible leather sole and sides made of a single piece of leather.

A feature that is typically unique to moccasins is the raw seam on the front of the topline (where the tongue would be on a regular shoe).
