What’s your Minnetonka story?
Our mom bought us matching Thunderbird mocs when we were little girls. She had a pair and we both had a pair. We still have ours to this day and hope to pass them on to our kids. We often went on family vacations to a resort that had campgrounds, swimming and horseback riding. Our Thunderbird mocs were a part of our summer vacation wardrobes!

Elsie loves anything classic and feminine, from Marilyn Monroe to Jackie O. She is very inspired by the 1950s and 1960s. She loves clean lines and perfect details. Emma’s style is a little more bohemian. She is inspired by the 1970s and outdoor living. She loves fringe, gold and geometric patterns.

Elsie’s favorite city is Austin, TX. This is where she spent her honeymoon with her husband. She loves the laid back vibe and all the food trucks. She’s a taco enthusiast. Emma’s favorite city is Los Angeles, CA. She lived there for a few years after college and loves the cool and busy vibe the city has, not to mention all the cupcake shops. She is a sweets enthusiast.

  1. I’ve also worn Minnetonkas since I was a kid. My most coveted birthday present when I was 17 (18 years ago) was a pair of Front Lace Knee Hi Boots. I still have them and still wear them at age 35. They’ve held up so well – 18 years and going strong!

  2. I love Minnetonka! My grandma got me started and bought my first pair ive been hooked ever since! Love Elsie and Emma too! They make life more beautiful! xo heather
