On Trend: The Canvas Moc

A trend we love? The classic canvas look. As temps warm up and bulky jackets are swapped out for tees and tanks, fashionistas everywhere are embracing canvas.

The canvas moc offers a refreshing twist on the classic suede moc with a fabric lining that offers a lightweight chic summer style.  Plus, these little numbers are quick drying, easy to clean up and comfy, making them perfect for every adventure.

Slip into summer-cool colors like lime, coral and aqua. Or step into basic black or natural. Every lightweight canvas moc is good for the sole. Are you ready to make the summer switch?

DIY Spotlight: Painted Flower Mocs

Looking for the perfect summer moc? You’re in the right spot!  Today Courtney from A Little Craft In Your Day will be teaching you how to paint your White Smooth Leather Mocs with nail polish. These floral guys are the perfect DIY shoe for any occasion from fancy country club events and polo matches to a family barbecue or a casual day in town.

Check out the tutorial below on how to give your smooth leather mocs a makeover with nail polish and be sure to visit A Little Craft In Your Day for more fun DIY inspiration.

Minnetonka White Smooth Leather Mocs 
nail polish in a variety of bright colors
adhesive flower stencils

Step One: Pick a place on the shoe to start the pattern. Place the first stencil there. The rest of the design will stem off of your first flower.

Step Two: Using the nail polish, paint in the stencil. Let it dry before removing. These adhesive stencils are reusable which is very helpful.

Step Three: Going off of your first flower, create a pattern with the different shaped flower stencils. Try to alternate colors to get the best effect on your pattern. I try not to have two of the same color flowers right next to each other, but sometimes it is inevitable. Cover the entire top section.

Now, go enjoy your new floral mocs!

What’s your Minnetonka story?
Lucy’s Clothing and Shoes has proudly carried Minnetonka since 2010. We live in a small, locally driven community, set against lush West Coast surroundings. The natural bohemian nature of Minnetonka is a perfect fit for our lifestyle.

What is the most popular Minnetonka style in your store?
Our most popular style remains the classic Kilty moc. Its effortless vibe can’t be beat!

Along with being the first choice for our customers, the Kilty moc remains the staff favourite as well. The supple rubber bottom and soft suede are great for wearing before, during, after work and any place in between.

How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
Minnetonka mocs are incredibly versatile. We love them styled with a great pair of lived in boyfriend jeans and your softest white tee, or cozied up with a flirty floral dress and your best oversized knit sweater.

What are a few must see destinations near your store?
During the warmer months, the Sunshine Coast transforms into an outdoor playground. Whether it be paddle boarding our coastline, or hiking through any of our well loved trails (Smuggler’s Cove, Skookumchuck Narrows, Mt. Daniel to name a few) you’re sure to find your own little piece of paradise.  And your Minnetonka mocs will be right there with you, along for the ride!

Craftsmanship + Color: Limited Edition Thunderbird II Moc

Our iconic Thunderbird II moccasins have been infused with a fresh, citrus hue. These limited edition nectarine mocs are the must-have accessory for every summer adventure. They feature the same quality and hand construction everyone’s come to love.

A few weeks ago we got the chance to see how these handcrafted beauties begin.

It all starts with the best materials around. Quality, suede leather is cut with steel dies.

Each piece will become part of our iconic moccasin. The only way these reach our feet is by hand, which makes each pair totally unique.

Here the collar is expertly stitched. Hand sewing ensures an attention to detail unlike any other.

Next it’s time to sew the sporty sole to the moc. These rubber bottoms are key to comfort. They bend and flex with every step.

Hand lacing closes the moccasin around its round toe, which features our iconic hand-beaded Thunderbird detail.

Handcraftsmanship and a distinctive style meets a fun, new color. Pair these limited edition nectarine mocs with skinny jeans, skirts or shorts for a stylish, summer look.
