Custom Foot tracings

If you have hard-to-fit feet or if you’d simply like to guarantee a perfect fit without having purchased one of our moccasins previously, you’re given the option to submit a custom foot tracing at no additional charge.  We’ll custom make a pattern for you and keep it on file for five years for subsequent orders.  Please follow these instructions:

  • If you plan to wear socks with your moccasins, do the tracings while wearing socks.  If you plan to wear your moccasins barefoot, do the tracings while barefoot.  There’s about 1/8” difference with or without socks – the equivalent of a half size.
  • Have someone make a tracing of your foot using blue or black pen of standard thickness (no fat pens). NO PENCILS (they don't fax properly).
  • The person doing the tracing should hold the pen exactly vertically as they trace the outline of both feet.  An outward slant to the pen will make the tracing too big; an inward slant will make the tracing too small.  Have the pen hug the foot as you do the tracing.
  • You need to stand on a piece of paper on a hard surface (not carpet).
  • When you are having your feet traced, stand with both feet parallel or side by side (not one in front of the other).  Lean forward slightly so that the body’s weight is on the ball of the feet.
  • Repeat for the other foot.
  • You may trace one foot per sheet of paper.
  • If your feet are long, you may use a legal-sized sheet of paper or tape two pieces of paper carefully together.
  • Trace the actual outline.  Do not eliminate bunions or other variances. 
  • If you’re ordering a taller boot such as the Kaskaskia, Meramec or Nokasippi, also measure the circumference of the leg at the fullest part of the calf.  If you’re ordering a knee-high boot such as the Nokasippi, also include the measurement from the ground to the bottom of your knee cap.  We’ve got the capacity to adjust the calf measurement and the height of the boot to accommodate customers of all sizes.
  • If you’ve got a high instep, please indicate “high instep” somewhere on the tracing.
  • If you’re prone to swelling, please do the tracings when feet are swollen or indicate to leave a little extra room to accommodate future swelling.
  • Moccasins are intended to be snug when new.  If you require a little extra wiggle room, please indicate “extra wiggle room” somewhere on the tracing.
  • Put your name and phone number on each page.
  • All tracings need to be submitted via US Mail.  Our address is:  Itasca Leathergoods, PO Box 228, Lake George MN 56458. 
  • DO NOT scan or email the tracings.  Even if we attempt to print out in actual size it doesn’t work and the measurements will always be INCORRECT.
  • DO NOT fax your tracings.  We have a new fax machine and it no longer prints actual size.
  • If you’re ordering a product from our website exactly as shown but in a custom size please indicate that “tracings to be mailed” in the custom comments box on the first page of the checkout process.  Check out as normal.
  • If you’re ordering a custom leathers or colors along with your custom size, please follow the above instructions for ordering via phone or email.
