Men’s Moccasin shoes: history and characteristics

We all know that the famous men’s moccasins have been around for many years. They have crossed ages to continue to compete with the latest generation of shoes. Some young people today might show some disinterest in these shoes, on the pretext that they are no longer fashionable. Women used to make shoes in the form of bags in Canadian forests to protect their men’s feet. It was in these forests that the first moccasin was created. They looked like leather sewn and folded over the sides. However, they were practical though simple. When winter approached, these shoes were changed to obtain fur shoes. They were designed to leave no trace in the snow thanks to a fox tail which was securely attached to them. Later, these shoes will be improved by the most creative, in a competitive environment, in order to stand out from the others. These creations are still visible at the Toronto Museum, the cradle of moccasin history. You can discover hundreds of models on display. Initially, we encountered two models of moccasins. The lace-up moccasin and the bib moccasin. The first model is quite easy to recognize thanks to its decorative lace, while the plastron model is provided with straps to connect the two edges.

Versions of moccasins:

Penny Loafer

One of the most traditional styles, Penny Loafer is an elegant shoe. It is also versatile, which makes for an excellent purchase. The name was established in the 1950s, when it enjoyed a profound popularity among preparatory students. The shoe appeared as a classic American piece, presenting predominantly in collegiate outfits across the country. It was a favorite choice of shoes due to its simplistic style and easy adaptability. Today, Penny Loafer is a knot of the past and is available in a variety of different materials, to the taste of each gentleman.

Tassel Loafer

Incredibly elegant, tasseled moccasins are our favorites among the many styles in which this shoe comes. Clean, simple, with a single tassel on each shoe, this one is perfect for your wardrobe. It is a humble ode to the great European style, an allusion to classic Italian clothing. While the front part with tassels is often made of leather or deer skin, it is another excellent choice. Also, deer skin will give you greater freedom when you want to adjust your tassel moccasins to different dress codes.
