My Minnetonka Story: Barb Wells
What was your first pair of Minnetonka mocs?
My very first pair of moccasins were purchased from a little shop in the Wisconsin Dells when I was about 12 years old. I remember begging my mom for them and that I must have them in black. I fell in LOVE with them and wore them EVERYWHERE… I felt like the cool kid at school. They were a pair of Back Zipper boots (the photo above is right after I got them).
What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka moccasins?
My favorite memory is when I wore them to a Motley Crue concert at Alpine Valley Music Theatre and there was tons of mud on the hill and I took them off and carried them all night so they wouldn’t get dirty. I hung on to them for my life and walked barefoot all night in the mud.
How far have you and your Minnetonka mocs traveled?
I have taken my moccasins as far as Key West, FL and they have been to lots of different places (if only they could talk).
Describe your Minnetonka style.
Although I owned many different styles throughout my life so far, I really love the Driving moccasins and the Fringe boots. As long as they are Minnetonka Moccasins, I am good with whatever style they are.
