“Le Moc’ is freedom, a lifestyle without constraints, an infinite escapade…”
MICHEL PERRY. Artistic Director, J.M. Weston
Le Moc’ Weston has taken direct inspiration from the last of its elder brother, the iconic loafer 180. The key component of this style, the last was developed in the J.M. Weston workshops after more than two years of research.
It is unique through its ability to bring supple skins to life and hold them in place. Raised at the toe and thickened on the forefoot, it compensates for the lack of reinforcements with clearer last edges, giving structure to the leather in spite of its flexibility.
Finally, a raised stiffener takes the upper up to the Achilles tendon to keep the heel in place.
Re-patterned, the upper is designed to remain close to the foot. The lines of the shoe move up along the Achilles tendon, the quarters surround the foot, holding it in place, and the tip points proudly with its raised stance.
The side stitching on the strap has been removed for improved comfort and flexibility, and more subtle contact with the instep. Unique and untouchable, the apron is the only feature to remain completely unchanged from the original loafer 180.
The proud, elegant edge of the jointed and stitched sides is still recognisable, as are the precision of its sharp lines and the insolence of its tip. Crafted in leather, the sole is fitted with a rubber insert through an expert artisanal technique which straps up the cut edges. The lowered heel relaxes the step and brings it closer to the ground.
The natural hue of the leather has been chosen to enhance the vibrant colours of the upper and inject a breath of fresh, sandy air into this summer shoe.
