Thunderbird Moccasin: The Perfect Shoe Every Season


As early as the ‘40s, our moccasins appeared in gift shops across the country. Travelers would take a break from their road trips and pick up a pair as a souvenir or as a gift to bring back home. In 1955, the Thunderbird debuted and soon became a popular choice at these shops countrywide. Ever since then the moccasin shoes have been one of our signature looks, and their appeal has extended around the world. Even today, the Thunderbird continues to make headlines as a stylish choice, and often seen on the feet of fashion influencers.


Like our other mocs, the handmade Thunderbird is constructed with high quality materials, using premium leather and suede. They feature fringe accents and classic moccasin stitching. One of our best moccasins, the shoe is instantly recognizable by the distinctive hand beaded Thunderbird design on each toe. 

The shoes have been updated for modern wear, now coming in hardsole and softsole options. Lightweight, the softsole moccasins have a barefoot feel, while the hardsole (Thunderbird II) features a thicker, rubber sole. For a sportier style and extra grip, we also have a boat sole version that comes in Red and Navy color options.


Coming in a variety of versatile neutrals, the must have shoe is a comfortable and stylish option all year long. Out of all the types of shoes for women, mocs are one of the most adaptable, and the Thunderbird works well with a variety of looks. In the summer months, try the smooth leather options in Natural or White. Consider wearing as a more stylish alternative to the sandal and pair with cropped jeans, shorts, lightweight dresses and skirts. With its comfort and flexibility, it makes a great vacation shoe. Bring along to warmer climates like a desert getaway or a visit to the lake.

During the colder months, try the ultra-soft suede options. Suede is a nice complement to the heavier and textured fabrics seen at fall and winter. Wear with a cozy sweater, jeans, or leggings. The everyday shoes for women are also handy to wear around the house as slippers to keep feet warm.
