What is your Minnetonka story?
We began selling Minnetonka products in 1999.  We knew that Minnetonka would be a great addition to The Crowe’s Nest and would complement the Southwest fashions, hats and accessories that we carried in our store.

Over the years we have expanded our Minnetonka selection to include a variety of sandal styles. Our moderate climate here in Tubac, Arizona, allows sandals to be a popular selection in our store year round.

Our customers know the quality and comfort of Minnetonka Moccasin and keep returning to our store to add new styles to their Minnetonka collection each year!

What are the most popular Minnetonka styles at The Crowe’s Nest?
Our most popular style of moccasin is the Kilty Suede Moc in almost every color, with the Hi Top Back Zip Boot being a close second in popularity.  Two favorite sandal styles in our store are the Silverthorne and the Boca Thong.

What is your favorite style of Minnetonka mocs and sandals to wear?
Ann’s favorite moccasin is the Kilty Suede Moc in grey and her favorite sandal style is definitely the Boca Thong.  David likes the soft comfort of the Moosehide Classic Moc in chocolate.

How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
All of the styles of Minnetonka moccasins, sandals and boots are very versatile. They can be worn with any outfit from skirts to shorts any time of year!
