Proudly family-owned and operated since 1946, Minnetonka’s long-standing independence has allowed us to do things a bit differently than other companies throughout the years. Today, we’re driven to be transparent and intentional about our path forward. While we continue to craft beautiful, comfortable footwear, we are also committed to becoming more sustainable and socially responsible.
To become a more eco-friendly company, we underwent our first top-to-bottom sustainability audit with external experts in 2021. Today, we are tracking our sustainability commitments in a yearly report to ensure that we reach our goal of making a real, measurable difference toward building a more sustainable future.
We believe in the power of giving. Whether it’s donating time, energy or resources, a helping hand can go a long way in strengthening a community. Over the years, Minnetonka has focused on investing in causes that benefit children, women, families, schools, and the Native American community. We will continue to actively support a number of Native organizations doing important work in Minnesota and beyond. But that’s not enough. We intend to move forward in a manner that acknowledges and honors the Native American culture, design, and people who have influenced our brand and business. We’re committed to collaborating with Native artists, designers, and creators who will receive recognition and payment for their work.
At Minnetonka, meaningful tradition and lasting change go hand in hand. From the craftsmanship of our footwear to the way we treat our employees – every day we show up to work, we honor our longstanding principle of striving to do better. That’s why we are dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive workplace at our Minneapolis, MN headquarters and holding our manufacturing partners to high ethical standards.
