Booties

19th century


Almost most children were encouraged to go barefoot, they often owned one pair of shoes. These homemade baby booties were made of buckskin and called moccasins. Moccasins were light and comfortable, but only in dry weather. During rainy weather, the moccasins would become damp and clammy.
