Here in Mexico also the young men uses the wear cap take the brim to the side or backward.

That is the wear for the new people.

For the youngest for me not.

I have no idea how moccasins are there, as you can guess, but that's my idea of moccasins:

Lol. Here is what they are here:

I thought, wow, why would people there wear them?
Corrections are welcome.

The moccasins in your link are different from those sold here. I wear moccasins in summer here. I don't like high-heeled shoes and moccasins are fresh and comfortable. Your feet are free and you can run and do whatever you want.

You do know that caps with the peak at the back or side are dearer than conventional ones because of higher manufacturing costs, don't you?

Personally, I think that anyone who imagines that wearing a hat sideways or backwards makes him or her look look cool has to be mentally retarded, but then I'm sixty-six so nothing an old fool like me thinks is of any value!
