Waterproof Mocs?

There has been a lot of excitement lately about two new moccasin styles we just introduced: The Rugged Roo and the Taz. Both moccasins feature our new T-Rex soling - a rubberized, water resistant material. The Taz has the added feature of extra T-Rex on the toes and heels.

We've been asked a couple of times over the past week if these shoes are waterproof. While water cannot get through the T-Rex material, moisture could still seep through the side seams or soak in through the upper suede if you are puddle walking in them. However, they DO provide a nice moisture barrier compared to the traditional suede sole on wet grass or pavement. The other benefit of the T-Rex is that it stays clean looking longer, is easy to wipe the surface clean and remains "non-skid" longer on hardwood floors than suede.

Hats off to DeAnn for her design on this fun Taz moccasin in the picture! She named the "Taz" after her son Thomas .

    These are way cool! I wonder if they're protective enough for a 5 year old to wear on the preschool playground? Does anyone buy these for everyday, outdoor play shoes?
