A pair of driving mocs is the perfect amalgam of Italian and (Native) American, and a longtime Mashburn staple. Polished leather, rubber studs, and a slip-it-on profile means they can go almost everywhere: workday! weekend! supermarket! station wagon! Bikram! dive bar! Etc. etc. etc. (Ann wears hers as house slippers.) Ours are made with a super-comfortable padded insole at a tiny, moccasin-centric factory in Italy.
“They make excellent city shoes as well. Comfortable, safe, practical, blah blah blah—can you tell I am a mother?—but the biggest reason to pack driving mocs is that they are stylish all over the globe.”
