Italian shoe-maker launches line of handsewn moccasins

GREENBRAE, Calif. – Samuel Hubbard Shoe Company launched its newest women’s line, Free Spirit for Her.

This handcrafted collection that features attention to detail launched on March 5. Free Spirit for Her brings together retro styling inspired by the style’s Italian origins and Samuel Hubbard’s innovative comfort technology to create a unique take on the driver moccasin style.

“We have been wanting to add handsewn moccasins to our line for several years,” said Bruce Katz, Samuel Hubbard’s CEO.

“It took us a year to get the details and first shoes worked out, but we are now importing beautiful shoes from Brazil like my father pioneered in the 1970s. The first shoes that I sold for Rockport, before the company even had a name, were driving moccasins. A genuine moccasin construction cradles the foot differently than a typical lasted shoe and conforms more easily to your foot. They are super flexible and light, making them the ideal travel shoe.”

In the early 60s, Italy introduced a leather shoe that was crafted just for driving. Slim, minimalistic, and stylish in the way that only European footwear could be in that era, the driving moccasin was born for adventure. Today, we’ve innovated on this classic design and they’re available in a kaleidoscope of colours.

Free Spirit for Her is available on the Samuel Hubbard website
