My name is Franck Boistel, I am the founder and creator of Mocactia. Mocactia means "putting shoes on" in the Aztec language, The Nahuatl, still spoken today in parts of Mexico.Mocactia footwear is a brand like no others. I am launching the brand with a very unique Aztec footwear style that I decided to bring back to life after a drawing of it caught my eye on an Aztec manuscript. I felt instantly fascinated by the two toe loop feature and the attachment with the high backstay making this shoe a prefect sandal made for walking and running. I instantly envisioned this cool ancient design strolling summer’s urban streets and beach around the world to the point to launch my brand and invest all my time, and energy to make it happen. Check it out; when you place your foot on the foot bed and attach the sandal to your feet, you will feel like you wear nothing and your foot will have support in the same time. Also, the sandal and all the other products I will launch will be very fashionable and ground breaking. The Aztec sandal is a perfect new women footwear style, simple, comfortable and stylish. The Aztec people designed this sandal perfectly adapted to warm weather and long walks or run. This is why I wanted to bring this style back and share it to the world, it is a gem of human technology, comfort and craft that has been long time forgotten.
Our goal for the brand is to launch to market relevant, stylish and functional footwear with a story related to all of us. I feel fortunate I came across this, and my goal is to launch a successful new footwear brand in the spring of 2012 that will bring a unique point of view and a renewed aesthetic to the footwear world. If our Mocactia brand is successful, we will make sure that 5% of the proceeds go to environmental and educational projects across the Americas starting in Mexico where the Aztec sandal has been first created.
