Off-to-College Shoe Style | Minnetonka Moccasin

You’ve got your bed-in-a-bag, favorite posters, and new school supplies. Now that dorm planning is complete, you can focus on your college style! When deciding on shoes, some things to consider are versatility, easy wear, comfort, and style. We’ve rounded up the best shoes for college that easily transition from walking to class to hanging out with friends. 


Looking to give back? Check out the Me to We Moc, one of our new moccasin styles featuring artistic hand beaded designs. The beautiful handiwork is crafted by the Massai Mamas of Kenya. Working with the Me to We Artisan program, their participation provides them with sustainable jobs. Made with soft suede, try the comfortable shoes with your cozy fall cardigans and oversized sweaters. 


Easy slip-on shoes are essential for college life. The Kilty Hardsole is convenient to slide into when trekking through campus or socializing around the dorm. Padded insoles, genuine suede, and flexible soles will keep you comfy whether catching a sporting event or meeting up at the campus cafe. Wear the versatile staple with leggings, jeans, or casual dresses. 


The Anna ballet flat can be worn with basically anything in your closet. It has a simple and sweet design, but a closer look reveals amazing comfort details such as interior lining and an elasticized topline for flexibility. Wear with a fitted blazer to your internship, or a sweater and Tartan skirt combo for a student functions. Anna is also light enough to tote in a backpack or overnight bag when visiting the fam back home. 


Sneakers are one of the biggest college fashion trends, and this dressed-up version is a standout. Designed by fashion influencer Lottie Moss, the Fur Trim Bootie is a stylish bootie/sneaker hybrid with a sporty sole and faux fur lining. For even more interesting texture, the outer is constructed with leather and suede. Wear with a floral dress for a modern look, or go casual with high-waist boyfriend jeans and a cropped sweatshirt.


The Studded Moc is another chic piece from the Lottie Moss x Minnetonka capsule collection. A moc with a rock star edge, the fringe trim is embellished with metallic studs. Constructed with velvety black suede, the Studded Moc is a versatile flat that can take you from the library to the local music venues downtown. Wear with a T-shirt dress or a parka jacket layered over denim shorts and graphic T-shirt. 

Managing papers, part-time jobs, and a social life, college is exciting, but sometimes hectic! Streamline your life with easy, well-made flats like the ones above. All the shoes here are ultra comfortable, and an easy way to amp up your college wardrobe.
