I still say...MOCCASINS. Preferably beaded Cheyenne
style moccasins, because they are resole-able and the
beadwork looks good. If you are dancing on a wet or
slippery surface, have thin "dance rubber" or "topi rubber"
soles cemented on over the original moccasin sole. For
cushioning you can put foam rubber insoles inside. This
way, your footwear will not look out of place.

I use Moccosins...........I heard a story about this old carver using a chainsaw to cut out his pattern and some non-native said that he wasn't being traditional that the old timers didn't use chainsaws and the carver told him, they would've if they had them.............natives use the best tool for the job.............sometimes it's going to be water shoes

Exclamation Watershoes vs. the real thing

If I had to really choose between them both I would have to say mocs. Sure watershoes are great and they are a good subsitute if you can't afford the real thing but a lot of contests and elders look at what you wear and how you follow traditions. Sure you can take watershoes and bead them, paint or even put sequins to make them look good but how many of you and I mean really you would consider wearing them like that?
Some friends and I while at a 49 (a real one) started brainstorming on the consept of mocs vs. watershoes and thougt it would be cool if you could take watershoes and put the leather on the cloth. To our amazement it worked and seems to last. Sure its' cheating in a way but if you think about it, it saves you the hassle of feet that hurt from stepping on things, messing up beadwork or getting them wet. Plus it also is a cheeper alternative to the real thing.

A better solution to wet dance arenas, sharp objects, etc:
thin "topi rubber" or "dance rubber" over the bottoms of your
moccasins.
