The Moc Boot is inspired by red Wing’s iconic work boot, and is completely rebuilt for women. It was originally designed  and built to withstand long days on the farm and  in the factory. The lightweight sole featured a minimal tread design to reduce the mud from clinging to the boots, while providing underfoot comfort. The modern update is lightweight, comfortable, yet tough. It features polyurethane traction tread outsoles and premium Red Wing leather, keeping the original purpose in tact.

George Michael’s Impact On Pop Culture.

2016 has been the year where many iconic musicians past, Bowie, Prince and most recently, George Michael. He was referred to as the soulful pop star, but besides his voice, he is remembered for his fashion sense, both in everyday life and the iconic imagery his music videos left behind. There was a lack of shame not only in his music but the imagery that accompanied it. From his days in Wham! when he wore, and highlighted the bold-lettering-tees trend with t-shirts that bore the saying Choose Life. It was  bold and unapologetic, especially for the time. One of the most memorable moments in George Michael’s career was the Freedom video where he brought fashion into the homes of the masses, by having the biggest supermodels of all time lip-synching the lyrics to his song. There was Cindy, Linda, Tatiana, Naomi and Christy dancing, crawling and singing on our TV sets. These almost otherworldly creatures somehow became attainable through his music video. He then followed up with his Too Funky music video where more supermodels pranced on a runway in Thierry Mugler’s iconic designs. The musician’s admiration for fashion was definitely evident in in his videos. One of the most shameless moments of his career was after his very publicized arrest in a Beverly Hills public bathroom. After the arrest the musician did’t shy away from the public eye, instead he went on to write a song and create a video about the incident. He danced in a bathroom, wearing an officer’s uniform, a very chic and fashionable uniform, as he sang about his arrest for soliciting sex. The song and music, was Michael’s way of saying he wasn’t ashamed. And at a time when homosexuals weren’t highlighted in the media in a positive light, the musician’s representation for the gay community, only saw his star rise even brighter. He was adamant about who he was, in a time that said he shouldn’t be. Although there’s a large bubble of irony surrounding the singer who sang the iconic holiday breakup song Last Christmas died on Christmas day, he did leave behind a legacy of  imagery to accompany his music. Enjoy one of his iconic moments, not only for music but fashion, below.
