Sandal 2013 Design Time!

Have you checked out the new Minnetonka sandal line yet? At Minnetonka HQ, we’re already hitting the drawing board to plan for the sandals you’ll be wearing next year, envisioning what you’ll be dancing around beaches and summer boardwalks in for 2013. Here are a couple behind-the-scenes pictures of the sample room our product development team has been getting creative and having fun in  over the past month.

The product development team kicks up their feet at the morning meeting.

Footwear eye candy - the sample wall!


We want to bring you to the table to share your design and product ideas. What do you love about the current sandal line? What do you want to see more of (more fringe! more height! more comfort! new colors!)? Please share your product input with us and we’ll keep you updated as we go along.

See you in the sample room!

Keeping Winter Style Fresh

Today we started our morning with some Pinterest browsing, and that brought us back around to one of our favorite blogs to watch,  Karen Blanchard, the acclaimed British fashion blogger living in NYC, seems to dig up some of the best vintage finds, and combines both high and low fashion in her unique looks every day.



After seeing this combination of vintage-found sequins and fur + the Minnetonka Front Lace Knee Hi Boot, we were once again smitten with her style, and on the hunt for end-of-the-season sequin sales.  That’s the way to spice up winter wear and kick off March!

Until next time,
