My Minnetonka Story: Sarah Heckle of Tulle and Trinkets

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My very first pair of Minnetonka moccasins were the studded mocs, and the two button boot wasn’t far behind.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka’s purchased?
My first Minnetonka’s were purchased two summers ago when I lived in little-old Ocala, Florida for a summer internship. I came across a Handbag Factory that happened to also sell Minnetonka’s. It was definitely a unique shopping experience. The place had no AC (remember – this is central Florida in July!) and the sweetest lady was running the show. I fell in love with my Minnetonka’s then and there! Now, the other shoes in my closet suffer a little jealousy.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
My favorite memory would have to be the Jonsi concert my now-husband and I went to. I obsessed over what I was going to wear to this concert. I finally settled on a retro-inspired sweater, jeans, and my Minnetonka’s. Oh — and the concert was amazing!

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
My Minnetonka’s accompanied me to the Dominican Republic for my honeymoon this past October! They were perfect for walking excursions and they paired perfectly with the beachy and breezy suitcase of clothes I packed.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
I think I have a split personality when it comes to style. Part of me is very girly and feminine: pastels, bows, dresses, and ballet flats. But the other part of me is so drawn to 60s and 70s-inspired boho style: maxi skirts, flowing tops, pared-down makeup & hair — and my Minnetonka’s!

My Minnetonka Story: Rach Gent

My Minnetonka Story: Rach Gent, blogger behind So, hi.

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
I remember when I was a little girl, maybe about 5 or so, I would just stare at my mother’s Minnetonkas with some sort of crazy infatuation. So my love for Minnetonka’s started at an extremely young age. My first pair were actually a pair that my mother had purchased for me, they were the classic Thunderbirds and they were beautiful. I was probably about 9 years old when I had gotten them and I fell in love. They were so classically cute and they went along with every outfit a spunky, adventurous 9 year old girl could come up with.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
One of my favorite memories involving my Minnetonka’s are all of the wonderful comments I receive while wearing them! I swear, when I wear my 3-layered fringe boots I get stopped at least 5 times every time I go to the grocery store! Who knew I was so stylish?

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
The furthest my Minnetonkas have traveled is the Windy City, Chicago. I think the best Minnetonka fans actually live there! So much Minnetonka support!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka style is very versatile, because Minnetonka shoes are versatile. I can wear my fringe boots with a floral dress and belt to go for a flirty, bohemian feel or I could wear my beaded mocs with a pair of cropped jeans and a sparkly oversized tee for a glam feel. I guess I would describe my Minnetonka style as “Boho Glam”.

My Minnetonka Story: Brittany Nelson

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My very first pair of Minnetonka moccasins were given to me by my grandma. I have always been obsessed with moccasins, and so my grandma gave me these awesome off-white boots with tassels. They are pretty old, but still have the Minnetonka stamp on the inside. They are too big for me, but I still adore them.

A couple years after my grandma gave me hers, I found an awesome pair in Nisswa, MN. These were the classic fringe boot, and I still love them today!

I currently own four pairs of Minnetonka moccasins.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
I don’t know if I have a specific favorite memory, but I love knowing that I own true Minnetonka moccasins.  I take great pride in wearing my Minnetonka moccasins wherever I go.

I also get super stoked when I purchase a new pair!

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
Two years ago I purchased the Kilty suede moccasins. I wore them touring all the way from Georgia up to New York while building skateparks and working with youth.

This summer, my moccasins will be traveling to Panama to build another skatepark!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka moccasins have definitely helped me have a style of my own, one that is unique to me!

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!
