Dear Muffy: Socks with Camp Mocs?

A Reader Question:
Hello Muffy!
I wanted to reach out to you regarding a wardrobe question:
Can one wear socks with a canoe shoe or does the style lend itself to a more bare ankle look?
As always, enjoy your blog on a daily basis.
Thanks much for your input.
I prefer camp mocs, including Quoddy's canoe shoes, worn sockless, but they are fine with certain types of socks.  Unfortunately, as with boat shoes, the best socks are often ragg wool that may necessitate going up half a size or so.   


  1. As anyone who has ever canoed or sailed in early spring / late fall can attest - a pair of wool ragg socks can be a God send when feet get wet!
