DISCOVER THE RICH MATERIALS THAT MAKE MINNETONKA
Since 1946, we’ve crafted exceptional shoes, boots, slippers and more. But our footwear is only as good as what it’s made from — which is why we use only the finest materials, to ensure comfort, durability, and timeless style.
Regarding sustainability, we ensure that the tanneries we work with are using environmentally friendly business practices. In the Dominican Republic the tannery we work with has received gold certification from the Leather Working Group for sustainable business practices. In Mexico the tannery we work with has received silver certification from the Leather Working Group and has received environmental recognition for reporting emissions and creating energy efficiency. In China the tannery we work with adheres to strict government standards and we’re working with them to achieve formal certification in the future.
