My Minnetonka Story: Kate Lines of She Writes Home

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair were the Kilty Suede mocs and they continue to be my very favorite shoe!

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka mocs purchased?
My moc’s were a gift from my sweet and very thoughtful father in law a few years ago. I’d been eyeing them for months, and he heard me mention them just once and bought me a pair. He even guessed the right size! I love my mocs for lot’s of reasons, but the main one is that they always make me think of my husband’s fantastic Dad. Anytime I wear them somewhere out of the ordinary I send him a picture text with a caption that reads “the Mocs are in ______ today!”

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka mocs?
My husband and I we’re canoeing in Idaho last summer, and of course I was wearing my trusty mocs when our canoe capsized! We swam to shore and it wasn’t until later that evening when I took off my mocs that I realized they’d dyed my feet camel brown! It was a battle scar I was proud of.

How far have you and your Minnetonka mocs traveled?
My Minnetonka mocs have been to nearly every national forest in the Western United States! They’ve logged lots of miles of walking, hiking, kayaking, camping, and biking through the big ones like Yellowstone, Moab, Zions, and the Grand Canyon. They are a constant in my backpack to switch out of tennis shoes or hiking boots as soon as we set up camp. My little mocs have been through quite a lot, but they’ve held up- those little troopers!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
I would say my style is tom boy-boho. The thing I love about Minnetonka is they can take a tom-boy style boho and a boho style tom-boy. If I’m wearing a feminine maxi dress my mocs make it a little more rough and tumble. And if I’m wearing shorts and a band tee my mocs give the look a more 70’s vibe.
