I have introduced so many boots brands, and there is always one word: MOCCASIN Mocin. Although every retro friend knows the word, because you can’t avoid the choice of shoes. But do you really know Mo Carin?
Just like the shoe -shaped BOONDONDOCKER BOOTs we have talked about before, Mo Carin first refers to a shoe -making technology, and now it refers to the upper design.
Moccasin originally referred to a traditional shoe of American Aboriginal Indian tribes. The earliest originated from the Boltan language in the Department of Alguk, because this tribe was the first tribe to contact whites, so the word Moccasin Mocin was passed on, and it was later used to summarize the seams of Indian indigenous peoples. Shoes.
As the development of human beings is a manifestation of productivity development, the emergence of Mo Carin is also a demand for life function. They live in the jungle, mainly for hunting. Therefore, on the one hand, in order to protect your feet, on the other hand, when you are close to the prey, you step on the dead branches on the ground and lose the leaves, and make a sound as little as possible, and invented the soft leather Makhun shoes. Of course, from the perspective of cultural beliefs, the Indians believe that wearing Mogin can feel the ground through thin soles, conveying respect and admiration of nature.
Simply put, the initial Moksin was the Indian hunting boots. Traditional Makhindo shoes are made of tannal deer skin or other soft leather. Its soles, upper to the tongue are sutured by a complete handicon, forming a easy to wear to wear it. Take off the “pocket”. The toes are raised, and a soft leather upper is sewn, and a thick raw leather will be sewn to protect the seams that will not be damaged from rocks and other dangerous things. The front of the front gang was brought out of the shoe mouth, which was originally for waterproofing. The U -shaped suture structure above the toes is the detail of the real Moksin, and it is also the most significant feature of the Mogin process in modern shoe.
Because it is very soft and comfortable, it can even be “mute” on the road, so Moksin also is known as “soft bottom shoes” and “soft leather shoes”. It is also the prototype of almost all “shoes”. But the Indians’ Moksin shoes are much more complicated in the decoration of the color pattern than the present. The beads and sutures on the upper are actually implying that a person’s status in nature and the tribe, in important rituals, the most important members of the tribe will put on Makhin shoes with beads. In addition, all the directions of decoration are also particular, and they must face the owner of the shoes rather than the viewer.
In the 1750s, a French soldier noticed the shoes they wore under their feet when they were in contact with these aborigines, and then recorded the production process of Moksin shoes, and later accepted by businessmen and European immigrants. By the 20th century, Moksin shoes became popular.
After Mogin’s spread from the Indian tribe to modern cities, some design changes have also occurred. After all, urban people are not so primitive. However, many important cultural elements have been retained. After the designs of urban people, Moksin evolved from a shoe to a shoe technology. It is precisely just a kind of upper technology. It no longer contains the sole, because most of the modern styles of Moksin shoes, the soles are blessed by Geteye.
It can be said that the emergence of Moksin has brought great revolutionary impact to the shoe manufacturing process.
For example, in 1920s, the factory used a factory to apply Makhun’s technology to outdoor sports shoes, and the Hunter Boots hunting boots came into being with this wave. Hunting boots, as the name suggests, were originally designed for hunters. However, with the ultra -high practical performance given by Moksin’s craftsmanship, once it was released, it was unanimously welcomed by many hunting enthusiasts. It seems that there is no pair of hunting boots, and the wild is embarrassed to go. Later, he gradually moved to the public and was respected by outdoor enthusiasts.
Especially in the 1960s, with the unruly and freedom hippie’s love for Moksin, it entered the mainstream culture, and even many American indigenous culture became an important influence at that time. At that time, a manufacturer was MINNETONKA mini Thangka. It produced “Thunderbird Thunderbird” Moksin shoe to become a best -selling product in the streets of the 1960s.
In all the work boots, when talking about the love and obsession with Moksin, the most famous should be Red Wing. Don’t forget that the birth of Red Wing is the town of Minnesota. Minnesota was originally an Indian territory. Later, white people came here to develop. So now you understand why the logo on the red wing boots is Indian style. And the brand belief is: designing special shoes for each industry, naturally, the gene of hunting boots is indispensable.
As we all know, the Red Wing boots have four different shapes of toe styles. One of them is the well-known MOC-TOE “square head” style. It has been produced since the 1950s. And this “MOC” is actually the meaning of MOCCASIN, which refers to the U -shaped stitching toe in front. However, Most of the Mo Carin technology of Red Wing has been simplified.
In 1954, Red Wing developed the production needs of factory workers. It is also the hottest entry-level worker MOC-TOE 875 and 877 today. It is still the favorite of American workers. It is also a must for many people who love American style Prepare boots. With the classic Moksin toe, plus Traction Tred rubber soles, it has become a mark of the Red Wing brand.
877 is one of the most classic shoes of Red Wing, and it is also the best -selling shoe. Adopt 8 -inch high -quality Red Wing oro Legacy leather, MOC TOE’s printed suture -sized square toe, with the Goodyear inside suture process and the Traction TRD outsole.
Although Red Wing’s square MOC-TOE is “bulky” and thicker, it increases the rough tough guy’s temperament. But if you don’t want to be so tough and want to retro, you can look at another brand Yuketen from the United States. Yuketen’s Moksin style is more typical and a bit Indians. The inspiration of its boots comes from the hunting boots in Minea, North America during the New England period, to the greatest extent.
Yuketen boots are flat and thin, the toes of the toe are slightly tilted, and the stitching edges is complex and sturdy. Especially the sole structure, there are generally 4 ~ 6 floors, and some even reach 8 to 10 layers, which are very thick and increase comfort. The midsole consists of a 100%vegetable tanned leather and rubber layer. The Vibram rubber outsole is usually placed in a rigid handle structure. It not only enhances the stability, but also reduces the fatigue of long -term wear. Compared with ordinary work boots, it has excellent comfort for a long time.
In addition to workers’ boots, Moksin’s application in gentleman shoes is also common. There is a saying good: if there is no Moksin, there may be no one of the four gentlemen shoes, the appearance of loafers. In fact, the bean bean shoes and sailing shoes that are close to Lefu shoes are made based on Moksin. In contrast, Doudou shoes will be closer to the traditional Moksin.
Look, the toe of Mo Kasun can be made into exquisite gentleman shoes with a suit. It can also be made into rough worker boots, with jeans and trousers. Although it looks a bit “ugly”, the rough and different retro texture of the U -shaped suture structure can be matched with a lot of temperament, and a little bit of sewing method, color, pattern, accessories, will be sweet and sweet. salty.
By the way, this year’s boys’ fashion circles are really popular.
