Camp Moc Review

September 7th, 2010

Unlined, oiled leather camp mocs are my favorite shoes for summer. I wear several pairs in rotation from June to August. Where one would normally sport tennis shoes (for cycling, dog walking or skateboarding), I wear mocs. As the catalog patter goes: “these shoes have the snappy appearance of a moccasin with the support of a shoe.” Once the weather chills, I revert back to loafers since I have a personal ethos against wearing camp mocs with socks. I wanted to document my collection before I clean and archive them for the winter.


The L.L. Bean original (actual camp dust in evidence)

Quoddy update (customized w/red brick soles a la all plaidout)

MacRostie Leathers Moccasins (recently restored by the maker)

Letter from Elaine and Bud
