My Minnetonka Story: Rach Gent

My Minnetonka Story: Rach Gent, blogger behind So, hi.

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
I remember when I was a little girl, maybe about 5 or so, I would just stare at my mother’s Minnetonkas with some sort of crazy infatuation. So my love for Minnetonka’s started at an extremely young age. My first pair were actually a pair that my mother had purchased for me, they were the classic Thunderbirds and they were beautiful. I was probably about 9 years old when I had gotten them and I fell in love. They were so classically cute and they went along with every outfit a spunky, adventurous 9 year old girl could come up with.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
One of my favorite memories involving my Minnetonka’s are all of the wonderful comments I receive while wearing them! I swear, when I wear my 3-layered fringe boots I get stopped at least 5 times every time I go to the grocery store! Who knew I was so stylish?

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
The furthest my Minnetonkas have traveled is the Windy City, Chicago. I think the best Minnetonka fans actually live there! So much Minnetonka support!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka style is very versatile, because Minnetonka shoes are versatile. I can wear my fringe boots with a floral dress and belt to go for a flirty, bohemian feel or I could wear my beaded mocs with a pair of cropped jeans and a sparkly oversized tee for a glam feel. I guess I would describe my Minnetonka style as “Boho Glam”.
