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!
