Moccasins originated a long time ago, in the '30s by the American Family Spaulding. At the beginning they are not appreciated by critics who define them as "slippers", whereas in the '40s they become popular thanks to Fred Aster who wears them with the frac to dance the tip tap. Fashion explodes in America in the '50s among the college students when moccasins are worn with uniforms. In the '60s they spread all over the world, becoming a symbol of style and elegance. In the '80s they are back in the spotlight as casual shoes for excellence. J.E.M mocassins are navy style, made in calfskin with high rubber sole.
