The Old Mocos
I have no idea how long I have had these moccasins. But they are now perfect - they are not shiny and new - they have that perfect, used look to them. When they are brand new, they are actually maroon in color, with white soles. Sounds ugly, right? But these are Sperry Topsiders - the classic boat shoe, and that's how they look. So the trick is to wear them until they look beat up and used. Mine are now that way, but there is a problem... The soles are now kind of shiny, and very slippery. I have used sandpaper on them, and they are a little less slippery, but the bottom line is that I NEED new moccasins. So I will have to start all over, and it will take a long time for my new ones to get broken in, and look as good as these do.
