Which shoes do we call Slip-Ons?
Espadrille flats, loafers, moccasins, slippers, even sneakers. All these shoe styles can be Slip-On if you don't have to fasten them. Usually they are laceless designs with a low heel or platform sole. Depending on the used materials (textile, suede, leather) Slip-On shoes can be worn in warm spring, hot summer and even rainy autumn.
Origin of different styles of Slip-Ons.
Although moccasins are so famous in Italy, historically they were the footwear of many indigenous people of North America (especially hunters). A moccasin is a flexible shoe, made of deerskin or other soft leather. The style became so famous for its comfort that people started to use it for driving and working.
Loafer or slippers style has a moccasin construction. The first loafer was developed by an English shoe company in London. Nowadays this is one of the most worn shoes worldwide.
Espadrilles have French-Spanish origin. They were handcrafted all over Spain as well as in the French region of Occitanie and were the usual footwear of peasants since the 14th century. While in the early days the sole of the espadrille was entirely made of rope and the upper was traditionally canvas, the modern espadrilles are often made from leather and much more durable soles covered with rope details.
