Moccasins are in!

Whoever said that good shoes always hurt, and that they’re not good enough if they do not hurt enough, were wrong! Moccasins are proof of the fact that they’re wrong - these shoes have a significant connection with history and they have evolved to be called the lovechild of comfort and style. The history of these shoes can be traced back to that of the indigenous population of the Americas. They found it easier to walk around and hunt in these shoes, which were soft-soled, or hard-soled, depending upon the terrain which they were staying on.

The original moccasins were all uniformly brown, although, touches of style would be added to them in the form of bead-work and other such attachments. But mostly, the moccasins were brown in colour, and were made from very soft kinds of leather. The prime purpose of the moccasins was the protection of the feet, while allowing the wearer to feel the ground he/she was walking on.
However, they’ve come a long way since then! Moccasins are now very much in vogue! These shoes are comfortable, fashionable, and come in a wide variety, for a number of occasions. What’s not to love?

Moccasins have made a comeback, and many fashion -conscious women have noticed that one need not wear high-heels to work every day in order to look chic. Moccasins do just fine. Due to their make, they can look formal and casual, depending on the kind of look you want to achieve. The patent suede moccasins in shades of tan, black and maroon can be used for office wear. Out for brunch with your girlfriends? Colour-block your outfit with bright yellow moccasins or the ones which have a little bit of wedge heels at the back. They even manage to go with Indian, ethnic clothes! And if you want to go out for a night of partying, but you’re wondering how to fit moccasins into the equation, there are silver and golden ones available as well as animal print styles, which will give the attire a little bit of bling while managing to keep your feet comfortable while you decide to dance the night away.

Moccasins are also the favourite footwear of many celebrities. If we think they move around in 6-inch heels off the camera as well, we’re wrong. Many actresses wear moccasins while walking around or going out casually. The thing about the versatility of the moccasins is, they can produce the androgynous look very effortlessly, and they can also look incredibly feminine. Also, moccasins are here to stay for a while. They can look good on your feet in any season whatsoever. Summers can see moccasins paired with a nice tee, or a vest and jeans, or even a dress. Winters will also be comfortable, because the moccasins provide the necessary snugness around your feet. They go with jackets, they go with skirts, and they go with "kurtis" and "patialas". Invest in a pair today, and you will not be sorry at all!
