You’ve forgiven your mother for dressing you and big sis in matching macrame vests on your first day of middle school.
But tossing away your baby moccasins without recognizing their hand-me-down potential was inexcusable.
Don’t fret; keep your growing tribe in fashionable step with Echo Country Outpost’s take on a Wild West classic — Papoose baby mocs and children’s Teepee boots. The durability of suede, American elk, or buffalo leather combined with soft soles and hand construction is perfect for little feet.
Add in hipster modifications like bright colors (we love the fuchsia) and feathers, lace, or shearling, and you may even want to get a matching pair.
Available at Echo Country Outpost, 1930 Echo Park Avenue, at Duane Street (323-667-9606 or echocountryoutpost.com), $28-$100.
