What is your Minnetonka story?
Minnetonka has been a pillar of our business for over 30 years. We began selling Minnetonka mocs in the 1980s, when people would walk in with feathered hair and buy a pair of mocs that matched their acid-washed jeans. We started with the white Kilty Driving moccasins, then added the Moosehide and Thunderbird mocs and now carry the very popular fringe boots and fashion color mocs. At our store, Minnetonka isn’t a trend, it’s a mainstay.
What is your favorite pair of Minnetonka mocs, boots or slippers?
Last season, the girls fell in love with the Kilty Suede Hardsole Mocs in a variety of colors and the fellas wore the classic & comfortable Casey Slipper.
How do you like to style your Minnetonka mocs?
Our casual work atmosphere allows us to wear Minnetonka Moccasins to work, but they’re also great for play. We wear them with skinny jeans or with our favorite Smartwool socks.
