What was your first pair of Minnetonka boots?
My 5 layer fringe boots were my first and are still my favorite pair of Minnetonkas, they are my go-to shoes. When in doubt, I go to the 5 layer fringe boots.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka boots purchased?
My first pair were a gift from my lovely best friend for my 21st birthday.  Her dad owns this awesome boot store in Austin TX called Allens Boots and she got them for me from there. If you are ever in Austin be sure to poke your head in that store, its mostly cowboy boots but they have a nice little selection of Minnetonkas!

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka boots?
I wore my 5 layer fringe boots to an event in downtown Tucson for dia de los muertos. That night at least 5 different people came up up to me and wanted to pet my boots, as if they were shaggy dogs. This one guy was even speaking to them in the voice that you would talk to the cutest puppy in, ” hi little booties!” It was bizarre but it happens all the time to me!

How far have you and your Minnetonka mocs traveled?
My 8 (almost 9 waiting on the 3 layer fringe boots in wine currently in the mail) pairs of mocs have traveled with me everywhere! Every road trip, every overnight, I always have a pair with me. My mocs have gone everywhere with me from Tucson, to LA, to Chicago, to Austin. They have braved the craziness of Lollapalooza, and walked the streets of 6th in Austin TX for South by Southwest.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
Minnetonkas are definitely my go-to shoes, the Kilty mocs when its in the high 90′s outside and I’m going to be exploring the city of Chicago running from train to train. I’ve even covered my brown Kilty’s with rhinestones to make them a little more ME. The extra shine goes a long way. I wear my mocs with everything from short dresses in the summer, to tights and layers in the winter.  They go with everything, you can never go wrong.  I am a devoted Minnetonka fan and they will always be my favorite go-to shoes.

My Minnetonka Story: Kate Lines

My Minnetonka Story: Kate Lines of She Writes Home

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair were the Kilty Suede mocs and they continue to be my very favorite shoe!

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka mocs purchased?
My moc’s were a gift from my sweet and very thoughtful father in law a few years ago. I’d been eyeing them for months, and he heard me mention them just once and bought me a pair. He even guessed the right size! I love my mocs for lot’s of reasons, but the main one is that they always make me think of my husband’s fantastic Dad. Anytime I wear them somewhere out of the ordinary I send him a picture text with a caption that reads “the Mocs are in ______ today!”

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka mocs?
My husband and I we’re canoeing in Idaho last summer, and of course I was wearing my trusty mocs when our canoe capsized! We swam to shore and it wasn’t until later that evening when I took off my mocs that I realized they’d dyed my feet camel brown! It was a battle scar I was proud of.

How far have you and your Minnetonka mocs traveled?
My Minnetonka mocs have been to nearly every national forest in the Western United States! They’ve logged lots of miles of walking, hiking, kayaking, camping, and biking through the big ones like Yellowstone, Moab, Zions, and the Grand Canyon. They are a constant in my backpack to switch out of tennis shoes or hiking boots as soon as we set up camp. My little mocs have been through quite a lot, but they’ve held up- those little troopers!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
I would say my style is tom boy-boho. The thing I love about Minnetonka is they can take a tom-boy style boho and a boho style tom-boy. If I’m wearing a feminine maxi dress my mocs make it a little more rough and tumble. And if I’m wearing shorts and a band tee my mocs give the look a more 70′s vibe.

My Minnetonka Story: Jayme Cawthern

Jayme in her favorite boots to style, the Minnetonka Tramper Ankle Hi boot!

 

My Minnetonka Story: Jayme Cawthern of Miskabelle Vintage

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
I had been lusting after the Tramper Ankle Hi Boots and finally received them as a birthday gift—3 years ago–and they’re still my number one, go-to boot in my closet!

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka boots?
My Minnetonka boots have seen lots of adventures with me… (because let’s be honest, I’m all about comfort and they are by far the most comfy shoes I own!).   I’ve worn them to concerts, on vintage treasure hunts, dinner dates with my husband, and even city dwelling with my sister.

How far have you and your Minnetonka boots traveled?
Oh gosh, I really wish that I could say “Paris” or “Rome”…but honestly, I haven’t had the opportunity to travel all that much.  I did proudly rock them in Washington D.C.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
I have always been drawn to a somewhat bohemian style (I am a painter/artist so I guess I sort of fit my own cliché).  I am really into mixing dressy and casual pieces, so I totally pair my Minnetonka boots with a little black dress + layers of jewelry.  As a mom of a one year old I also tend to wear a lot of jeans… a daily outfit of mine would be: skinny jeans, tucked into my Tramper boots, a vintage concert t-shirt and (if I’m leaving the house) loads of bracelets, rings and necklaces to add interest.

My Minnetonka Story: Kelsey Nosek

My Minnetonka Story: Kelsey Nosek

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair of Minnetonka moccasins were a classic pair of caramel brown kilty suede mocs. Growing up I was always jealous of my friend’s collection, especially her knee hi lace up boots. So when I stumbled upon a store that sold Minnetonka moccasins in Northern Minnesota, I was like a kid in a candy store.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka’s purchased?
I bought my first pair of moccasins in the quaint town of Nisswa, Minnesota at a store called “The Totem Pole.” My friends and I spent the weekend at a cabin and took a break from swimming, boating, and catchphrase to venture into town. The store was filled with a hodgepodge of souvenirs, gag gifts, Native American inspired trinkets, and of course, Minnetonka moccasins.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
My favorite memory is from Bonnaroo. My Minnetonka’s took the trek with me down to North Manchester, Tennessee and fought through the crowds, dust, and dirt to enjoy the awesome music. They were the perfect music festival shoes!

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
The furthest I’ve traveled with my Minnetonka’s is Europe. I spent a semester in Copenhagen, Denmark in college and wore my black thunderbird mocs literally everywhere. They were perfect for the cold weather and the uneven, cobblestone streets.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
Moccasins are definitely a staple in my closet. I find myself replacing tennis shoes, flats, sandals, and even high heels with moccasins on a regular basis. Yes, I’m guilty of pairing moccasins with anything from a formal dress to yoga pants. However, my favorite pairing is with a flowy, high waisted skirt and a loose fitted blouse.

My Minnetonka Story: Hannah Darling

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair of Minnetonkas were the Calf Hi 3-Layer Fringe Boot in brown. I wore them for months straight, rain or shine, hiking in the mountains or out on the town.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonkas purchased?
I got my first pair of Minnetonkas on a road trip through the beautiful American Southwest. We stopped at a little gift shop in the middle of nowhere on the way to go camping at the Grand Canyon. I had to have a pair of the Minnetonkas they had lined up in the window. They were the perfect shoes to wear on my very first visit to that magical place. And I’ve worn them every time I’ve returned!

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
I once had an elderly co-worker of mine comment on my Minnetonka Moccasins, saying he wished he could wear stuff like that. I told him he could! He laughed, said I was right and I told him where he could find some moccasins of his own.

How far have you and your Minnetonkas traveled?
I’ve worn my Minnetonkas all over the country, from Yosemite National Park to New York City. Thats what I love about them, they’re so endlessly versatile.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka style is casual and comfortable. But I love to dress them up too. Traveling, work, play- I pretty much wear them for any occasion.
