Suede Shoes: The Versatile Fashion Staple | Minnetonka Moccasin

Suede is a natural material we love. It’s soft and lush, yet it’s also durable and long-lasting. At Minnetonka, we put a priority on materials, using only high-quality, buttery-soft suede in our footwear.

While luxurious to the touch, suede can be incorporated into your everyday wear. It has a timeless, classic quality that’s fashionable season after season. Swathe your feet in suede with the selections below. We collected a sampling of our favorite suede shoes for women, men, and kids.


Kilty Hardsole

A combo of style and practicality, the Kilty Hardsole is a classic moc made with velvety suede. Like denim, suede is a material that will complement multiple pieces in your wardrobe. From jeans and leggings to skirts and dresses, these women’s moccasins will have your weekend looks covered. Suede doesn’t always have to be neutral; we also have vibrant color options to choose from to add flair to any outfit.

3-Layer Fringe Boot

For suede that’s kicked up a notch, try statement fringe boots. With 12 inches of height and cascading suede fringe, the 3-Layer Fringe Boot is an eye-catching look for the adventurous spirit. As vintage styles have come to the forefront, this boot is often seen on fashion influencers, yet it’s still a versatile piece. Wear with dresses in the summer for outdoor activities, or layer with thick socks and leggings for the colder months.


Classic Moc

Meet your new staple. These suede moccasins give regular chinos or jeans a style refresh. In the Classic Moc, feet are surrounded with soft suede and a cushioned insole. The men’s moccasin is easy to slip into, and the flexible rubber sole can take you from work to downtime. On a “Casual Friday,” wear with a button-down; or on weekends wear with your favorite flannel or fitted knit.


Tilden is a comfy men’s indoor/outdoor slipper that you’ll want to wear all the time. With a loafer-like slide-on design, this supple suede shoe is available in two stylish neutrals: Cinnamon and Grey. It features a heavy-treaded sole and removable contoured footbed for support. Wear with joggers for lounging, taking a walk, running errands, or meeting friends.


Riley Bootie

We pay attention to detail, even with our baby booties. With softsole bottoms, the sweet Riley is easy on baby feet and features an elasticized opening so the bootie stays put. It also features an adorable fringe collar. Choose from a variety of colors, including leopard print!

Thunderbird II

We love these fun moccasins for kids. A mini version of the adult Thunderbird, they are decorated with our iconic beaded bird. Thunderbird II also has moccasin stitching and cotton lacing. These suede mocs are easy to put on and to wear for school or play, and they feature a lightweight, sporty rubber sole for extra grip.


Even though suede has a sumptuous feel, it doesn’t mean they’re too delicate to wear. Suede is actually quite durable. Your Minnetonka suede shoes will provide dependable wear if you take care of them. A suede protectant, cleaner, and brush can help tremendously in keeping your shoes clean and plush.
