The Moccasin Meets The Boat Shoe

Moccasin – A slipper made of deerskin or other soft leather. In standard form it consists of a sole and sides made of a sole piece of leather, stitched together at the top, and sometimes with an additional panel of leather (a vamp). The sole is soft and flexible and the upper part often is adorned with embroidery or beading.

Boat Shoe – Typically leather with rubber soles, boat shoes are only to be worn for casual engagements. Identifiable by the leather laces that trace around the ankle and around the heel of the shoe.

What would you believe to happen if the two were to combine? Could such a hybrid displace all other casual engagement footwear and be synonymous with the glares obtained by the desirable?

Pointer footwear, the brand that aims to tackle an industry filled up with “hyped-up limited edition sneakers” assumes it to be the perfect answer to summers chausseure dilemma. That’s shoe industry to you or I.

The Concept

“With equal attention paid to function and aesthetic, allowing you to look darn fine in any scenario, with a rubber sole acting as guardian to luxurious nu-buck uppers, Pointer have provided the solution to the problem posed by not being able to don two pairs of shoes at the same time – here the Benson and the Tanju moccasin's meet the boat shoe and deliver … THE PERFECT SUMMER FOOTWEAR.”

The Debate
  • Could you make this footwear hybrid work within your wardrobe?
  • How would you use it and what items would you pair it with?
  • What other footwear styles would you like to see combined?
  • Will this be a style picked up by other high street and high-end retailers or will they go it alone with their own combinations?
