The Minnesota Moccasin II by RockDove
The word "moccasin" comes from makazin in the language spoken by the Ojibwa Indians of northern Minnesota. It was here that our founder, Kevin Lace, found inspiration for our classic moc slippers. While on a birding trip near Duluth during mid-April, Kevin spotted a herd of bull elk undergoing molting, a process where the animals shed their winter fur ahead of the summer. The lighter, almost-blondish color of the elk's fading winter coat contrasted beautifully with the emerging dark brownish color of their summer coat. This sharp contrast inspired the design of the back collar and body of the RockDove moccasin, originally available only in moosehide brown.
RockDove was created for five birdwatchers of the Los Angeles Audubon Society in 2002. They were our first customers, when we weren’t yet a slipper company, but a beachside workshop in Santa Monica, California that customized and resoled hiking boots. For fifteen years we helped local birders and hikers protect their feet while they trekked punishing terrains across southern California’s deserts, forests, and mountains.
As a “boot clinic,” when customers had footwear needs, we took note. And we noticed something that was badly missing in their lives—quality indoor footwear to console their trail-weary and travel-weary feet. So for Christmas that year, we handmade five pairs of slippers for our Audubon customers using a low-cut boot last. Using mattress top memory foam, with arch support copied from boots, the idea was to create slippers for extrememly tired feet. The first RockDove slippers were a success. As word spread, we received 350 orders for them by the following month.
Cherishing Life’s Mundane Moments
To this day our legacy of creating footwear as if for the most exhausted, adventure-wearied feet lives on. But adventure isn’t always hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Everyone lives their own version of it, every single day. We make slippers so that anyone who’s on their feet all day—not just passionate outdoorsmen but teachers, chefs, nurses, cashiers, traffic cops, postal workers, and more—can count on switching into the world’s most comfortable slippers once they get home. Most of you are so engaged in your daily 9-to-5 that the quality of your downtime, the après adventure, gets overlooked. RockDove was created to improve your 5-to-9 so you can keep going the next day. And we love being associated with the most mundane moments of your life, when you’re ready to switch off and put your feet up for the day.
We’re aptly named for the most mundane bird in the world, the rock dove (pigeon) with whom we share our beautiful hometown. Commonly seen strutting the boardwalks of Santa Monica Pier, they’re a memento of where we’re from and what we stand for.
Mundane Shouldn’t Mean Boring Looking
Most shoe companies treat their slipper products as mundane, everyday household items, and their designers subconsciously make them to look that way. “They’re just slippers.” And comfort is the only thing that matters, right?
We think differently. Once we got the comfort part down to a science, we gave our slippers a much needed makeover. Based in America’s capital for casual fashion, we’re always scouting the latest trends from LA’s Fashion District and star-inspired styles from Hollywood just 25 miles down Santa Monica Boulevard. From sleek designs and contoured silhouettes in bold and vibrant colors, to designer inspired prints that never before found their way onto slippers, RockDove slippers prove that the mundane can be beautiful.
