My Minnetonka Story: Lori Cahill, Minnetonka Moccasin employee since 1981
What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
I got my first pair of Minnetonka moccasins in 1975, when I was still in high school! They were the classic fringe soft sole mocs and I bought them at the Minnesota State Fair.
What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka’s?
My favorite Minnetonka memory is when I was standing in the checkout line at Target, and a teenage girl standing in front of me said “Your mocs are so cool!”
How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
My Minnetonka moccasins have been on fabulous trips to both Mexico and Hawaii.
Describe your Minnetonka style.
I own and wear almost everything that Minnetonka makes, every day of the week. This is only about half of the Minnetonka shoes I own. After 31 years of working for Minnetonka, I’ve built up quite a collection!
