Classic of the male wardrobe, the leather moccasin has long been worn by men with strict outfits. But it has become unbridled over time, especially in the 1960s, which saw the appearance of driving shoes with soles covered with studs to better adhere to the pedals.

Since then, it has been deployed in the spring-summer collections, multiplying the games of colors and materials, ranging from leather to raffia, combining camel and orange, bowing with good grace to the whims of fine weather, which require more suppleness, lightness and cheerfulness. Without renouncing the specificities of each, such as the breathable sole of Geox or the spiked sole of Tod’s.
