Kaibab Boots by unknown

Kaibab boots are the real thing: traditional Indian desert moccasins. Made of deerskin and horsehide, they are light, attractive, and durable -just the right amount of improvement over bare feet.  Unfortunately there are innumerable imitations of Kaibabs, all terrible.  The giveaway is the seam between sole and top: if the sewing is visible on the outside the moccasins are frauds and will fall off your feet in a few weeks. Real Kaibabs will last six months of steady use, and when you finally come through the soles, you can send the tops to Tucson for new soles ($12.00) and get another six months.  (One warning. Kaibabs on wet slick sidewalk are sudden death.)
