The Moeloco flip flop, yes Dream crazy , the meaning of Moeloco which has been derived from two words I put together. Moe originates from the Hawain word Moehani and Loco is the Latin word for crazy.
That’s my latest dream and venture. Yes , dreams do become real if you have a strong enough ‘why’ and keep believing and persisting.
Our flip flop, sorry guys I know in Australia we use the term thong however as we will be a global business , Mr Google dictated to us about the name. I was also getting a little fed up with the strange looks when I told people I was launching thongs. Of course their minds did not go to feet , but instead to another part of the human anatomy.
Soul Republic, who has created the Moeloco brand, is a social cause business where purchasing our products allows you to support a worthy cause through the choices you make when you spend your consumer dollars. We are a one for one business model, similar to the TOMS concept. When you buy one pair of our flip flops with purpose you will be putting a pair of shoes on a homeless child living in poverty. What might seem like a small action for you is huge for the children in India we are supporting through the Hope Foundation. This will enable children to attend school and avoid injury and health issues caused by lack of footwear. By going to school the children have an improved chance of leaving poverty behind.
At the core of all our products, as it is with the flip flops, are inspirational pictures and motivational quotes designed to inspire each of us to live the life we love, chase our dreams and make a difference. We are driven to empower like-minded individuals to connect with each other to build a heart-centred community that can change the world. In the words of the beautiful, late Robin Williams: “ No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world”! !
For the introduction of our shoes we have four limited edition designs, but there are many more in the pipeline.
For our next flip flop release we would love to know what virtues you would like to see , which messages really resonate with you. This is a journey we are all on together and that’s why it’s important to have you co-creating with us. Comment below with any ideas you might have.
Our first four designs are;
I am peace “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without” – Buddha
Live Love “ Where there is love there is life” – Gandhi
Because I’m Happy “The purpose of our lives is to be happy “ – Dalai Lama
Dream Crazy! “Dreams, if they’re any good, are always a little bit crazy” – Ray Charles
At this stage, we have our women’s shoes, with plans for children’s too next unless our male community would also like to don some inspirational footwear.
This limited edition run wont be around for long, in fact over 200 pairs have already been snapped up! Do hop onto our shop and grab yourself a pair or share the love and give a gift that gives back.
