What is your Minnetonka story?
Minnetonka has been a pillar of our business for over 30 years. We began selling Minnetonka mocs in the 1980s, when people would walk in with feathered hair and buy a pair of mocs that matched their acid-washed jeans. We started with the white Kilty Driving moccasins, then added the Moosehide and Thunderbird mocs and now carry the very popular fringe boots and fashion color mocs.  At our store, Minnetonka isn’t a trend, it’s a mainstay.

What are the most popular Minnetonka styles at Nokomis Shoe Shop?
Slippers, slippers, slippers and more slippers! The Cally, the Casey, and the Cassie.

What is your favorite pair of Minnetonka mocs, boots or slippers?
Last season, the girls fell in love with the Kilty Suede Hardsole Mocs in a variety of colors and the fellas wore the classic & comfortable Casey Slipper.

How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
Our casual work atmosphere allows us to wear Minnetonka Moccasins to work, but they’re also great for play. We wear them with skinny jeans or with our favorite Smartwool socks.

What are a few must see destinations when visiting Minneapolis?
Our store is nestled in the Nokomis area of South Minneapolis. We’re minutes from the airport, walking & bike trails, light rail, Minnehaha Falls & Lake Nokomis. We’re located on a bustling corner, across the street from Al Vento restaurant and will soon welcome the Town Hall Brewery to our block.

What is your Minnetonka story?
Here at Birkenstock Feet First, our Minnetonka story started about two years ago.  We received our first shipment of Minnetonka Moccasins and were so excited when we first opened the boxes and added them to our family of shoes here at Birkenstock!

Our customers came in and spotted our Minnetonka display immediately and began to reminisce back to their childhood telling us how they, or their family members, used to wear Minnetonka mocs!  They are so happy that we carry the same shoes from their past, that they purchase a pair for themselves and a pair for their children so that the Minnetonka memories may be passed down to the next generation!

What is the most popular Minnetonka style at Birkenstock Feet First?
Our most popular style is the Kilty Suede Moc!  Women and girls of all ages love this soft moccasin with a rubber sole.

What is your favorite pair of Minnetonka mocs, boots or slippers?
My favorite Minnetonka style is the Classic Fringe Boot.  I am now a grandmother and these have been my favorite style since the 7th grade!

How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
Minnetonka mocs are great! They can be paired with jeans, shorts and skirts.  Keeping it trendy and fashionable is what Minnetonka mocs are known for!

What are a few “must see” destinations when visiting North Carolina?
In Greensboro there are many great parks for hiking and bike riding.  One of the parks in particular, Guilford Courthouse National Park, has historical relevance in the Revolutionary War. A battle was fought between Cornwallis and Nathaniel Greene, hence the name of our great city.

In Winston-Salem there is a wonderful Downtown Art District featuring all types of art galleries, shops and museums. Also Historical Old Salem has acres of historical buildings, gardens and shops that are fun to visit.
