At first sight it can seem dowdy, old-fashioned, comfortable. But what it really is is cute, practical, comfortable and now! The driving moccasin comes in every color, pattern, heel height, you can find whatever you want. My favorite is the true moc with no heel.
JCrew has beautiful ones in metallic, so does Target (but it can have a funny fit if your feet aren't perfect, which mine are not). The one pictured is $55. Not bad for a cute shoe.
So, if you are tired of ballet flats or wondering how you will get from the mild fall to the cooler weather you may want to visit some shoe stores and check out your options. A classic look you can't go wrong with.
