My Minnetonka Story:  Sacha Martin, Owner of Bluebird and Ladyslipper Boutiques

What was your first pair of Minnetonka’s?
I will always remember my first pair of Minnetonka Moccasins, the knee high fringe boots. It was my first trip to NYC almost 10 years ago, and it was also my first retail buying trip. On that trip I met a woman with great style and she was wearing the knee high fringe boots. She had styled them with a fur jacket, that was the moment of inspiration for me!

Where were your first pair of Minnetonka’s purchased?
As soon as I got home from NYC, I searched for those Minnetonka boots and finally found them at Marshall Field’s. I still have them and wear them to this day. They are a true classic.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
Recently, I have added many colors of moccasins to my wardrobe.  I am currently obsessed with moccasins in navy suede, brown leather and the black Thunderbird’s. I can’t get enough. I have a different pair for everything I do. The black Thunderbird’s love to go to the gym, the navy suede’s love to go to Bluebird Boutique, the tan leather’s love to go to NYC. They all will take turns rocking out on Lake Minnetonka this summer. I wonder which pair will want to go to the Hampton’s?

Everyone should own a pair of Minnetonka moccasins because you can sport them with any style, edgy, preppy, sexy, you name it.  I’ll throw a fur on with them one day and the next day with a classic, white button down shirt and a sweater around my shoulders.
