Where can you buy a REAL Moccasin?

This question comes in by way of an email message:

Back into my old boat shoes. Actually, it's time, I think to retire them.

I had noted that in recent iterations, Sperrys which had been moccasins, pretty much forever have gone to a new construction method.

The method: The uppers are folded under, stitched to the outsole (almost like a blakestitch) and then then the area in between the edges of the folded under leather have been attached by a piece of mesh fabric and then covered with a foam insole.

Externally, they don't appear any different. But, there's a totally different feel, almost like wearing a pair of athletic shoes rather than actual boat shoes.

Does any reader have a suggestion for a brand that still makes a real moccasin?


Can we help this gentleman out?

If you want moccasins, why are you looking anywhere but Russell? They've been in business since your grandfather's time and the shoes you buy now will still be around after you are gone? Gokey's are equally good.
