A cheetah moccasin is a Native American-style shoe that features a cheetah print. Moccasins were traditionally worn by a number of Native American tribes and have become a trendy fashion item in some areas.
Moccasins are a shoe that is shaped like a slipper. The original shoes created by Native Americans were made of tanned leather. Women from the Plains tribe often wore boot-style moccasins that covered all or part of the lower leg. The word "moccasin" comes from an Algonquin Indian word, and while most Native American tribes understand the phrase, there are different words for the shoe among different tribes.
