Lauren in her favorite Thunderbird Mocs!

My Minnetonka Story: Lauren Hunter

What was your first pair of Minnetonka mocs?
My mother gave me her old pair of Thunderbird mocs when I was very young and I still have them! They’re soft soled, and so broken in. They’re one of my favorite pairs of shoes that I own.

My mom can’t even remember where she bought those mocs, but I bought myself a pair of El Paso mocs last summer, and they have not been my last. I also got myself a pair of black Kilty Suede mocs as well!

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair of Thunderbird mocs went with me to college when I was 17, they moved with me to Chicago, and from Illinois to Washington and back. They were with me when I was running through backyards and cornfields, and when I went on long drives across the country.

How far have you and your Minnetonka mocs traveled?
My Minnetonka mocs traveled with me to Scotland, where I discovered quickly that moccasins are the only shoes I am really comfortable in. Walking miles and miles through the streets of Glasgow, my Minnetonka mocs and I saw some amazing art, architecture, and ate some delicious food.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My moccasins go with everything, so I wear them with everything! I wear my Minnetonka mocs every single day with a pair of dark skinny jeans and a flannel shirt. I sometimes joke that it’s my uniform, but I made up my mind this year to only wear things I feel like myself in. And I feel like myself in my Minnetonka mocs!
