Kickstarter campaign launches today for shoe brand established in Houston and sourced in Peru

Mockas is truly a family product and I am excited for families to wear and share the shoes from generation to generation.

Today Mockas, a hand-crafted, premium loafer shoe brand with matching pairs for dads and kids, begins its Kickstarter campaign offering an early bird special up to 40% off. Handcrafted by three generations of shoemakers in Peru, Mockas are loafers with a moccasin sole designed for comfort and unique style at an affordable price.

“I created the concept for Mockas following a business trip to Peru where I came across shoes featuring a rare color combination,” said Mauricio Bielaz, founder of Mockas. “Inspired by my findings, I set out to create a shoe to fit any style for all-day comfort for dads and kids alike. Mockas is truly a family product and I am excited for families to wear and share the shoes from generation to generation.”

Made with real Nubuck and Gumi leather, Mockas are available in 4 colors: black, blue, gray and tan, in addition to a limited-edition mystery color for Kickstarter backers. The rubber-soled shoes are crafted with cow leather bringing together high-quality products for a lightweight and affordable shoe. From cutting the leather, to hand stitching, shaping the shoe and stamping, every pair of Mockas is unique. Adult sizes are available from 5.5 to 15 and kids sizes are available from 6.5 little kid to 5 big kid.

About Mockas

In 2016, Mauricio Bielaz, the founder of Mockas, made a trip to Lima, Peru where he discovered a modern loafer with a versatile style and consistent comfort of a moccasin. Upon returning, his son took a special interest in the shoe and wanting to wear one just like him. This began his search for a child size loafer with the same style and comfort. When it was clear he could not find the matching adult and child shoe he was looking for, the idea of Mockas was born. Over the next 2 years, he worked with a family owned shoe manufacture that created the very first pair of father and son Mockas loafers.
