My Minnetonka Story: Joy Watson

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair of Minnetonkas were moccasins that I got from a shoe store in my home town.

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
I take my Minnetonkas with me on every trip I go on. Last year I had the opportunity to go on a summer trip to Los Angeles California. I had never been west of Florida so this was a pretty exciting trip for me. I got to go to the walk of fame, and see the sets from some of my favorite shows.  I saw the west coast for the first time, and went to The Grove. I’ve had my moccasins for years and they are in amazing shape and are still one of my most comfortable shoes. They’re always in my luggage when I travel!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka style is vintage comfort; I love items that have a story behind them!

My Minnetonka Story: Ashley Dehkes

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My name is Ashley, and I am an AVID fan of Minnetonka Moccasin! I tell everyone I know about them and how much I love them. My first pair of Minnetonkas were the Kilty suede mocs, and I have since bought three more pairs. All my Kilty’s were purchased at Santa Fe Craftsmen which is one of my favorite stores in Old Town, Fort Collins, Colorado. I have recently added a pair of booties to my collection as well and I can’t wait to wear them around.

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
My Minnetonkas have traveled quite a bit I would say. I recently backpacked in Costa Rica for about a month and sported my Minnetonkas the entire time. They have walked along the beaches of Dominical, hiked to the waterfalls in Montezuma and stomped the crazy streets of San Jose. This entire experience was by far the best memories I have had while wearing my Minnetonkas.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
I would say that my Minnetonka style would be moccasins for sure. I love wearing them with just about anything and they are so comfortable. I love this company, you guys have never failed me!

Minnetonka Music Notes – Lana Del Ray

In Minnetonka Music Notes, we’ve always loved singer Lana Del Rey’s music but now we can’t help but love her Minnetonka style as well.   We spotted Lana strolling around Cannes, France in her white Minnetonka Smooth Leather mocs while in town for the Cannes Film Festival.  We admire how Lana has perfected her casual look in her Minnetonka mocs while still maintaining her signature hint of retro glamour style!

My Minnetonka Story:  Emily Schumacher

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My name is Emily and I will be turning 29 this month (on the 27th).  Woo, I feel old.  But since childhood, I have always had a pair of Minnetonka moccasins.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka’s?
I am from Peoria, IL, but have grown up vacationing in Minnesota every summer basically since I was born.  Every year, I would get a brand new pair of moccasins from Northwoods gift shop in Longville, MN and I would wear them till I wore them out.  I was always the only kid in my neighborhood in Illinois who had moccasins with authentic beading from some far off location.  They made me pretty cool.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
Ever since, I have been basically a Minnetonka snob, only wearing that brand.  When they became trendy again a few years ago and many companies started selling the style, I preached the Minnetonka brand and have since built almost my entire shoe wardrobe with it.  I tend to dress in flowy, earthy styles, and Minnetonka makes a style of shoe for every occasion in every season.  I have fringe boots (ankle and calf length), winter boots, multiple sandals, and many styles of moccasins I wear year round.

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
A few years back I started as a bandaid, following my favorite bands around the country.  In particular, I chased Crosby, Stills, and Nash around so much they invited me in as part of the tour family and I worked for them.  If anyone was looking for me, all they would have to do is follow the moccasin prints.  I have worn my Minnetonka shoes all over this country and in nearly every venue available.  They have lasted through all my tours and have always received compliments.  And I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I can’t wait to get some of the new styles for THIS summer’s tour!

My Minnetonka Story: Rose Eva

My Minnetonka (Love) Story: Rose Eva of Silhouetted.org

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair of Minnetonka mocs were the Kilty suede mocs, well over five years ago. It’s when I first started college, and I wore them daily, rain or shine, and it was hard for me to pry them off my feet, even when it started snowing. They held up beautifully despite my abuse!

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka’s purchased?
In New York City, where I moved for university. I saw a tall, beautiful woman walking down the street in them, she looked so elegant and carefree, I knew I had to have my own pair. I went into a shoe store on the block I lived on, St Mark’s Place in the East Village, and there were so many choices, but once I saw them in dusty brown I knew those were mine. (I later went back, and purchased them in taupe and grey as well.. can’t beat how nice they feel!)

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka’s?
A few years later, walking around London with my now-hubby, then-boyfriend, for hours, looking at all the absolutely beautiful sites, getting cupcakes at the Hummingbird Cafe, taking photos whenever we stopped, and finally feeling confident in myself after quite some work, but most importantly, being comfortable & content.

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
Hmm! The coolest city I ever went to in my Minnetonka’s is probably Tokyo, Japan. It was lovely to walk around the very stylish streets of Harajuku in a sundress with a pair of moccs or tramper boots, feeling like I fit in, but not worrying about how far away the hotel is. I stopped wearing heels when I started wearing moccasins!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
The greatest thing about moccasins are, you really can wear them with anything. Fringed ankle boots with a sundress or leggings, suede Kilty mocs with some jeans and a blazer, beaded mocs with a long, flowy skirt and loose top with braids in your hair.  I like to be able to change my style, to try new things with the new fashion seasons, and luckily enough, the mocs are always able to come with me and adapt. Now that I’m moving to England with my hubby, I’m excited to incorporate new and exciting fashions with my fave shoes. My favorite way of late to wear them is featured in the picture I included, for a nice, sweet summery look!
