Care

We recommend applying a suede protector before taking your new shoes into the elements, but avoid non-suede accents. If scuffs happen, no problem. Grab a suede brush or toothbrush and gently rub scuffs away. A suede brush or toothbrush works on watermarks and stains too - simply brush away the marks with water.

For tougher stains, add a dab of suede cleaner or baby shampoo. Let your suede air-dry overnight. Stick white tissue paper inside your shoes to make sure your suede keeps its form while it dries. 

Check out more tips and tricks on our  product care page.

Comfiest shoes, ever

These are serioulsy the most comfy shoes, ever. I ordered a 9.5 because I'm usually a 9.5/10 and I had to get them exchanged for a 9 because they run big, so definitely order half a size down! [...]

Feel so good on my feet

I had been wanting a pair of these moccasins for the longest time. I was in Pigeon Forge, Tenn back in the fall. I went into one of the shops, and found a pair, but they did not come in wide sizes. I wear a 7 1/2W and settled for the 7 1/2. My husband told me to buy them because leather will stretch. I am glad I listened to him because I wear them a lot and they feel so good on my feet. I get compliments from them also. They are a good conversation piece from other people. They tell me stories of the moccasins they had years ago. One lady said "I bet those are uncomfortable aren't they?" I showed her how they were cushioned inside. They really do feel good on ones feet. By the way I am going to order me another pair since I have found your web site. [...]

Love my moccasins!

Growing up on Oklahoma, I have worn moccasins my entire life. Always soft sole withe the fringe and leather tie. I bought my first hard soles just this week because I needed nice boots for work (I'm in my 50s, so it was a life changing decision). I love, love my moccasins. The only thing I like better is going barefoot. [...]

Long lasting, comfortable product

I located my pair that I began wearing in 1973. Still soft, supple and the most comfortable foot covering I have worn this year! Thank you for a long lasting, comfortable product. [...]

I highly recommend these shoes to anyone!

I received these in the mail a few days ago and I absolutely love them! I was sure about the sole because it's not hard but the soft sole makes the shoe so comfortable. I ordered my normal size, which is an 8 and they fit perfectly. . I can't wait for fall so I can wear them! I highly recommend these shoes to anyone! [...]

Softsole Boots

I have been wearing these moccasins since the age of 16. I am now 54 and have never missed a year owning a pair. I have had my children in them as well. I've never had a problem finding a store locally that carried the Minnetonka brand and now with online shopping I order from Minnetonka directly and have never had an issue. Surprisingly, with my preferred softsole and how frequently I am wearing them, they typically last up to two years which I consider a great value for the price. Highly recommended from a 150% satisfied customer! [...]

The ultimate Minnetonka moc

I wanted the ultimate, iconic Minnetonka moc....and this is it! SO comfortable and the bottom is padded so it's confortable to walk in. While I wouldn't recommend standing on a hard surface for 8 hours, for just zipping about it is wonderful! I know I'll have them forever. [...]

Little bit loose

Love these!!

I bought two pair of these, one in black and one in brown. Love them! Super comfy and they bring back awesome memories of high school...40 plus years ago. I'll definitely order 1/2 size down next time as they run just a bit large. I'll be living in these:) [...]

Love this classic moc!

Minnetonkas are known for their comfort and durability and these are no exception! Sizing runs on the large side (I wear an 11 but based on reviews ordered a 10 and could have gone for a 9.5) but that by no means is a negative. These are a basic wardrobe must! [...]
