On the seventeenth day of Holiday, my LA friend gave to me: Element’s Prairie Moccasin.
Who Would This Be Great For? The young man in your life who needs some relaxed footwear. He’s also quite a nature lover (both mountains and desert), too.
Who Is Giving This Gift? The cool mom or cool dad who wants a cool, conscious, affordable footwear item that *isn’t* Tom’s (since the kid already has a ton of Tom’s).
Why This Gift? Irvine’s Element has branched out into their more specialized, niche, beyond-skateboarding collection of clothes in their Emerald Collection. The Prairie Moccasin is an entry into the collection that are super simple and cool and young–and affordable at $50. They’re a suede shoe with cork midsoles and feel much like a Tom’s but with more razzle dazzle to it. It comes in a basic chestnut (seen here) and the more embellished grey or tan.
