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.

Love it!

I bought these as a gift for my mom, she has wanted a pair for years. She absolutely loves them, she hasn't worn her other shoes for the last 2 weeks. She says they feel perfect, they mold to her feet, comfortable and she says her feet don't slide around. [...]

Love at first sight

I fell in love when I recieved my moccasins.They are absolutely perfect! The reason why I ordered a new pair was because my old ones finally had a hole on the bottom. I had my
Moccs for a series of three days and never took them off. The one day I didn't
Wear them and went on a trip with my friend her car was broken into and
someone stole them :( I almost cried .. True story I have to save up to get another pair. Thank you Minnetonka until we meet again

Best Shoe

I bought a pair of the soft sole that has the back zipper around 1975 while traveling on leave from the Army at a reservation in New Mexico. I still have them today and wear them. I can not believe how well they have held up. Still in good condition. I don't care for the tie as I cant get them to stay tied, but these are the most comfortable shoes ever. [...]

Little bit loose

A Bit Big

Wish I had taken heed of the reviews. Ordered a zip back pair in 7.5 and they fit so well. Ordered same size with these and they are loose around my skinny ankles. But keeping them as usually wear socks also so that will hopefully make up the difference. Great style and quality. And nicely priced. [...]
