From American Indians to contemporary catwalks: the long history of moccasins
That of the moccasins, in reality, is a really long story, whose origins are uncertain and confused, as often happens with objects that have become iconic. The challenge on the paternity of the moccasin sees two rather particular populations opposing: American Indians and Lapps. Both developed rudimentary footwear that embraced 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 left for their long hunting trips, they wrapped the feet in a single piece of leather (buckskin for Native Americans, leather for 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, you have to wait several centuries and get to the 30s, when the GH Bass, an American boot manufacturer, launches i loafer, that is the modern men's moccasins. It is a real boom, also driven by a truly exceptional testimonial: Fred Astaire. The dancer, in fact, wears moccasins during his tip tap performances, consecrating them as a true icon of men's fashion. Since then, these shoes have never disappeared from the catwalks of men's fashion, always managing to reinvent themselves. Today, they exist different models, suitable for all needs.
