Product Review: Minimoc
Moccasins historically were the footwear choice of many indigenous people of North America as it allowed them to feel the earth beneath them. The etymology of moccasins comes from the Algonquian language Powhatan word ‘makasin’ and the Proto-Algonquian word ‘maxkeseni’, meaning shoe. Social media sites such as Pinterest along with a strong celebrity interest has brought moccasins into the spotlight in recent years as a must have staple in any child’s wardrobe.
Minimoc moccasins, owned by the power couple Amanda and Jeff, was born out of the desire to provide custom made, hand crafted gifts to the babies being born to their friends. Jeff made handmade leather wallets for his groomsmen when he and Amanda got married and with the remaining remnants Amanda made her first pair of infant moccasins. After gifting the handmade moccasins to a couple newborns she started to receive orders on the stylish fashion forward footwear and the business quickly took off from there.
When it comes to a child’s wardrobe moccasins just mesh well with everything so easily and effortlessly whether you are dressing a boy, girl, infant or toddler. With that being said Minimoc is without a doubt a brand you need to have in your child’s wardrobe.
