How to Rock Moccasins in the Summer | Minnetonka Moccasin

Just because you’re seeing sunnier days doesn’t mean you need to put away your moccasins. If you love their adventurous look and easy comfort, you’ll be happy to see how easy it is to integrate them into your summer style. Mocs have a relaxed vibe that fits right in with this season’s looks. We gathered four exciting options, along with ideas on how you can rock them with your summer wardrobe. 


Summer means outdoor activities, long weekends, and Independence Day celebrations. For these occasions try the Boat Moc, which combines a rubber boat shoe sole with classic moccasin style. Constructed with high-quality leather, it offers a touch of luxury to a sporty-chic summer ensemble. Wear with Bermuda shorts and a tucked-in button-down shirt, or a printed blouse with white jeans or shorts. You’ll love how comfortable the Boat Moc is whether you’re taking them out on a boating excursion or heading to a lunch with friends or family.


If you’re looking for moccasins in the summer, you can’t go wrong with the Kilty Hardsole. Their light rubber sole and slip-on design make them easy to slip on and go. The soft suede will be comfortable when you’re searching for that perfect grassy spot to sit for a picnic or concert in the park. Create your summer look by pairing it with whimsical West Coast pieces. Floral dresses, tie-dye tops, shortalls, and vintage rocker T-shirts are big for the season. If you already own a pair of the Kilty in a neutral shade, check out some or our light or bright colors like Pink or Turquoise.


This is the best time of year to roll your windows down and cruise down the highway. Take along the Classic Driver. The driving moccasin has a sleek leather design and decorative rawhide lacing. Functional and stylish, the moc features a nub-patterned sole for extra grip. Wear for travel or when you’re running errands, but still want to look stylish when you meet up with friends later. Pair with a printed skirt and neutral T-shirt, or cropped skinny jeans and a lightweight top. 


Our popular Thunderbird comes in a boat moc, coming with a rubber sole and cotton lacing. Best of all, they feature the iconic beaded Thunderbird embellishment. You can choose from smooth leather or soft suede options, and we love the summery White colorway. Wear with a striped top paired and jeans or shorts, and you have the perfect outfit for vacations, nautical adventures, or a leisurely bike ride.

Freshen up your summer style with a pair of mocs. They’re a breathable and lightweight alternative to sandals, and versatile enough to pair up with the season’s popular pieces. Find more moccasin styles here.
