Back to School Give Back | Back to Cool Styles

Every August, Minnetonka celebrates and supports the work our teachers are doing in classrooms across the country in partnership with

Between August 11-17, every pair you purchase on our website will contribute towards a donation to DonorsChoose (up to $7,500) — helping teachers, schools and parents prepare for the school year ahead. From providing classroom supply funds to delivering basic essentials and new technology, DonorsChoose helps connect the needs identified by educators with people and companies that want to give back.

With back-to-school season starting, we have a variety of stylishly cool shoes to choose from – whether it's for you or your favorite kiddo. Below, check out some of our top back-to-school favorites that you can purchase during Give Back week that will have everyone looking forward to the new school year!

MEN'S & WOMEN'S ECO ANEW | For the Sneaker Heads

Featuring our Flex3 sole made from 70% recycled sugarcane EVA, Minnetonka's first ever eco-friendly sneaker provides both comfort and sustainability for a wide range of sizes for men and women – perfect for wearing all day long, whether you’re a teacher or a student who wears adult sizes! Repurposed from plastic bottles, the woven fibers in the mesh lining, the laces, and 3/4 of the upper fabric are also 100% recycled. Plus – with the help of our non-profit partner One Tree Planted, every pair of Eco Anew purchased plants one tree.


There’s isn’t a more comfortable style for fun at recess than boots. Our soft suede Double Fringe Side Zip Boot features a padded insole for support, double stitching for durability, and a lightweight, flexible sole for grip. With a side zipper, kids can simply pull up the tassel to close and they’re ready to go. These bestselling boots also come in women's sizes!

LYLA | For the Fashionistas

Bring on the fluff! With a faux fur lining and faux fur outer, Lyla has a super soft feel that’s totally cute in the perfect statement-making colors. With an open-toed construction, kids can slide right into these cream leopard print and pink unicorn cuties with no hassle. Featuring a durable EVA sole, this style is easy to bring along to wear for after swim or gym practice. Pair with the adult-sized Lolo, and you’ve got a cute matching look!

CASSIE | For the Pattern Lovers

Modeled after the ultra-popular adult Cally slipper, the plush pile lined Cassie is the same statement style favored by the moms, sisters and aunties that kiddos look up to! Stylish stitching, rawhide leather laces and a lightweight rubber sole make this kids’ slipper style a winner – especially when they come in the newest unicorn and mermaid patterns. A surefire way to make every classmate jealous!
