We first saw ahead-of-the-curve girls sporting classic Minnetonka moccasins at parties and shows around Brooklyn in 2003. We remember thinking that the shoes looked really cute, especially with skinny dark jeans, but that moccasin’s 15 minutes would soon be up. But we were totally wrong. Moccasins – particularly the leather beaded-toe flats and the suede booties with fringe around the ankles – seem to be here to stay. Marc Jacobs keeps including the traditional Native American inspired footwear in collection after collection. This fall’s Marc by Marc Jacobs moccasin boot is the perfect match for the studiously casual plaid shirt and the perfect jeans weekend outfit. Are moccasins going the ballet flat way and becoming a classic? Or is this trend on its last legs? --ALISON COOL
