Pidamaya ye!
Are your mocs cut right to comfortably support your feet? Also, sometimes I have trouble dancing on certain surfaces, so I put a little extra padding on my shoes to act as a cushion when on harder surfaces. Or if our mocs are too snug, it can sometimes cause blisters or cramping.

If your mocs are big enough, maybe some of those Dr Schol's insoles?

Dancer tape. If your feet are sliding, even a little bit, inside your moccasins, the friction can cause blisters.

The ankle piece snug and tight should be a little bit harder than the rest - that should stabilize the foot I think - but never make them too tight on the foot and not to loose either - just a comfortable snug fit. Man - I have no idea how to make moccasins. But that's my opinion on this.

I like mine loose with a hard leather sole.

A lot of ballerinas line their slipper with moleskin or bunny fur. Not traditional but if nothing else works that might (better to comfortable and a little untraditional than to be totally traditional and hurt like crazy right?)

Good luck to you
