Today meet The Shoe Box owners Billy Weldon and Bill Day, along with men’s buyer Geof Weldon and women’s buyer Brittany Hill!
What’s your Minnetonka story?
Minnetonka has been carried in our store for over 35 years. We have a strong focus on comfort footwear and Minnetonka fits right in. It is one of those classic American brands that everyone seems to not only remember from their past, but a brand they still love to wear today.
What is the most popular Minnetonka style in your store?
It’s a tie between the 3- Layer Fringe Boot and the Kilty Moc. We’ve also started carrying more of the spring product recently which has been extremely popular. We are really looking forward to the fun colors available this upcoming spring!
What’s your favorite pair and how do you like to style your mocs?
Brittany had a hard time deciding between the Front Laced Knee High boot and the Double Fringe Side Zip! She loves to style her Minnetonkas with either leggings and a cute top, or with shirt dresses.
Geof’s favorite pair are the Moosehide Classic Mocs. According to him, the great thing about Minnetonka is you can dress them up or down as needed. They go great with jeans, slacks or shorts.
What are a few must see destinations near your store?
Well we can’t go without mentioning that we are located right outside the Florida State University campus, home of the 2013 National Champions.
We have the Tallahassee Burger Trail, a list of local restaurants serving the best hamburgers around. Go to any location on the trail and you’ll be satisfied!
We also have several great music venues around town including the Bradfordville Blues Club, a historic landmark in Tallahassee that has hosted nearly all the great blues bands around.
And Club Down Under an on campus venue in the FSU Oglesby Union that regularly hosts great bands. One of our employees sings in a salsa band there pretty frequently!
