Originally created and worn by Native Americans, moccasins, or ‘mocs’, have become an incredibly popular shoe style in modern times. Comfortable and versatile, moccasins will give you a barefoot feel while keeping you looking incredibly polished.
Moccasins are usually crafted with leather or suede, but many brands also produce moccasins with other materials. Moccasins are suitable for outdoor wear, especially driving moccasins (a contemporary style of moccasins with rubber tabs on the sole), however, be mindful that there are ‘slipper moccasins‘ that have extremely soft and flexible soles and are lined with wool and fleece; these are best for wearing only at home as they are technically slippers rather than shoes.
