I ordered the moose mocassin kit as a Christmas present to my wife. I ordered the size using the posted recommendations and assembled them per the included instructions. It did take a couple hours to assemble them but the finished product is beautiful and fits great. I added aftermarket insoles for extra padding. Great Product!
