From American Indians to contemporary catwalks: the long history of moccasins
In reality, moccasins have a very long history , the origins of which are uncertain and confused, as often happens with objects that have become iconic. The challenge over the paternity of the moccasin pits two rather particular populations against each other: the American Indians and the Lapps . Both developed rudimentary footwear that had in embryo the characteristics of future moccasins. And they did it practically at the same time, despite having no contact with each other. Both the American Indians and the Lapps, in fact, when they set out on their long hunting trips, wrapped their feet in a single piece of leather (deerskin for the Native Americans, leather for the Northern Europeans), which must have had three characteristics: lightness, softness and resistance. Just like a moccasin.
To see this rudimentary shoe transformed into a real trendy shoe, however, we had to wait several centuries and arrive at the 1930s , when GH Bass , an American boot manufacturing company, launched the loafers , i.e. the modern ones, on the market. men's moccasins. It's a real boom, also driven by a truly exceptional testimonial: Fred Astaire . The dancer, in fact, wears moccasins during his tap dance performances, consecrating them as a true icon of men's fashion. Since then, these shoes have never disappeared from the men's fashion catwalks, always managing to reinvent themselves. Today, there are different models , suitable for all needs.
