Pair of beaded calf-height moccasins. Upper portion is made of thin leather, open at front, and can be wrapped around the calf and tied by long leather strings threaded around the ankle, emerging to either side of a narrow tongue. Yellow flowers with blue stems and green leaves are beaded around the calf, with a line of blue and red or yellow beads surrounding three edges of the calf flap. Toe comes to a point, and is heavily beaded in a wedge pattern of squares in white, blue, red, and yellow. An ink pattern guide can be seen around the toe stitching on both shoes. Both have hard leather soles.
