We've been working hard to create a unique classics. Camp moccasins are part of the iconic, American hand-sewn style, with elements from many different types of moccasins folded into one.
They feature horizontal lacing around the throat (a.k.a. the ankle opening) of the moccasin, much like boat shoes. However, unlike boat shoes, they don’t feature quarters for lacing, which gives them elements of from various types of loafers or even slippers. The result is a simple, moccasin style shoe that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Whether or not you have room left in your summer footwear rotation we hope you enjoy this special project we created for our client.
We started with premium cowhide suede, in a dusty brown, along with a durable rubber sole, and authentic Mexican serapé insole linings with felted back heel accents and wrapped leather lace tips.
The insoles feature a soft comfy hand-woven serapé lining with the classic "Saint Lazare" abbreviated logo tag on the heel base. Memory foam ensure maximum comfort along with soft supple leather that molds to the wearer's feet over time.
The back heel tabs are adorned with felted "Sunrise" appliqués for notable, yet subtle rear accents. The lace tips have been hand-wrapped with waxed thread in multi-patterned design resembling the colorful bars of the serapé.
