One of a pair of animal hide moccasins. Soft upper with a rawhide sole sewn on with yellow thread, puckered at both the toe and heel. The upper is ornamented over the toe with a beaded design that may be an insect over a flower. The design is done in white, blue, yellow, red, green, and multiple types of metal beads. Beadwork continues along the sides of the upper in a simple zigzag design made from short segments of six beads. A cuff made from brown fur is sewn on around the ankle.
