Designer, mother and entrepreneur, Lindsay Stewart, began Free Range Mama after she found an old pair of Minnetonka booties she’d worn as a child. Looking for a creative outlet, she decided to paint them and pass them on to her newborn son. The first pair turned into new gifts for friends and then a successful Etsy shop and online store.
Today the Free Range Mama designs are catching the eyes and hearts of A-list celebrities, stylists, bloggers and boutiques across the country. The exclusive Minnetonka x Free Range Mama mocs celebrate imagination and individuality to inspire the next generation.
“I grew up wearing Minnetonka moccasins and passed them on to my two boys. The idea of hand painting moccasins as a keepsake to illustrate a baby’s heritage is like the modernization of bronzing baby shoes.”
