The Stealth Trackers: Moccasins with the Goop Sole

Any moccasin with the Goop Sole is a Stealth Tracker!

(The Stealth Tracker Moccasin - Tracker Moccasins)
The Ultimate Moccasin for Tracking, Tactical, Military, Stalking,
Earthing, or Traditional Bow Hunting.

Like the Moccasins worn by Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro
in the Movie, "The Hunted", only better!

At last, moccasin comfort with street soles, or the Stealth Tracker's - Goop Sole! Our custom fit and custom made moccasins now allow you to have highest quality without sacrificing comfort and fit.

The Goop sole makes this a very unique Tracking Moccasin. Tracker Moccasins allow an excellent feel for the ground, traction, even rock climbing grip, without the worry of having bruised or sore feet. Comes with removable wool felt insole, and a double leather sole covered with several layers of the Goop, which can be purchased and applied as needed for years of reliable service.

As with all our footwear, we start with a cast of your foot and custom build you a moccasin uniquely designed and crafted with care. We offer a wide variety of colors, designs, soles and buttons. moccasins can be as simple and functional, or as wild and outrageous as you wish.

These top grain leather moccasins are completely hand washable, with removable insoles that are replaceable. All our moccasins can be easily resoled, and are designed to last about twenty years with proper care.
From Cast to Complete Moccasins...

First I make the pattern from your cast and tracings. I next make the bottom double-layer leather soles (called the "Gemini Sole", to which I apply the Goop mixture) and insoles.

I cut out the leathers, and do the hand skiving of the edges with a knife so the overlapping layers that are to be sewn together lie smooth and flat against the skin. They are then glued together and are ready to sew.

The uppers and Gemini are sewn and then glued together.

Their is also the option for a Double Leather Sole without Goop, making these
a more natural Earthing Sole moccasin, like the Sand Buffalo with Smoke Elk trim Moccasins above.

One Customer’s Comment:

About 1.5 years ago I ordered a pair of 4 button Stealth Trackers from you.  The reason I purchased them was for hog hunting down in the creek bottom here in East Texas. I wanted something to help me be silent when sneaking up close on wild boar.

Here is a quick review which may help others or help you sell more of these wonderful boots.


The buffalo hide takes some time to break them in. The first 5 hours of walking, it seemed I stopped every 20-30 min to tighten them up. There was no way I could run in them starting out. I just walked, made sure my toes were touching the end of the boot and snugging them up. The next 5 hours or so, they started to become comfortable enough that I wasn’t always thinking about them and was able to enjoy walking in the woods. Somewhere between 10-15 hours of wear, all of a sudden they became like a second skin. Running, jumping, climbing trees was all good. That is when I really "got it" as to why people loved them so much. Unlike normal stiff soles on boots & shoes, I can feel every twig, root and rock under my feet. Not only does it make one feel more attuned to the forest floor, it helps be much more quiet when one is trying to get close to wild animals & birds. The Goop soles provide great traction, plus the felt liner provides good padding when walking on concrete or running down the street. Another benefit is that unless I step in mud or clear sandy ground I don’t leave tracks. (Every other manufacture of moccasin’s have modern soles with repeating patterns in them, while the Goop soles are like sandpaper in texture.) I just wanted to say that your moccasins are absolutely awesome. Wonderful craftsmanship and well worth the cost. You make a great product.
Sincerely,
Doug.
