ICONIC LEGEND
A sporty boat sole on our iconic classic.
Our traditional Thunderbird moccasin was introduced in 1955 and became famous in gift shops across the country. Years later, this trendy boat sole was added to the mocs for a modern look that offers a little extra grip, whether you’re sailing the seas or traveling by land. Choose smooth leather or soft suede – both offer the ultimate in comfort. Featuring our iconic handmade Thunderbird beading, these boat shoes for women offer a stylish, relaxed vibe.

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. Avoid non-suede accents. 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.

Cute Shoes

Liked the red color. Soft leather and very flexible shoe. Very much too wide for my narrow feet, but thick gel soles made them wearable. Wish you carried narrow sizes. [...]

Back to my youth

Minnetonka White no-sole mocs were "THE" shoe a girl had to have every spring waaay back in my Jr. High/High School days. So excited I found them again, though I've graduated to the boat moc, need soles on the aging feet. LOL! Got the navy and it's a really nice dark navy. They do still run big (wide, not long), but being a half size, I'll just wear socks or use an insole if they stretch out too much. Can't wait to get a suede pair for fall and of course a pair in white. [...]

I am 82 years old and have been wearing the Thunderbird Boat moccasins each I was 10 years old. I get more compliments on them from people wanting to know if they are comfortable and where do I buy them. I have them in white, navy, tan, red and pink. I would love to see them in turquoise to go with my jeans and turquoise jewelry. Any chance of that? [...]

High Quality

I have purchased many pairs of Mocs from this site. I have always found they are accurate in description and sizing instructions When you purchase from a department store it is Buyer Beware. Not the Minnetonka one expects. Department stores do not hold up in quality, sizing or wear [...]

I LOVE my moccasins.

I broke my foot three years ago, and can not wear laced shoes. Minnetonka has been wonderful. My moccasins are comfortable, durable, have many styles to choose from and full-range of sizes. Minnetonka keeps creating different styles, so you never get bored. If you are thinking of trying Minnetonka, go for it. It's worth it. Better yet, you're worth it. Enjoy!

Love my Thunderbird moccasins!

Received them as a gift from a dear friend in the smooth red leather and at first I was off put by the color! I'm used to the brown/black shades that go with everything. It didn't take me long to fall in love with the red. Love Minnetonka! Thanks for making such a wonderful quality product that lasts through the years! [...]

Love these moccasins!

I've been wearing the same style for over 40 years. I always have a pair of white. I also have pink, blue, black (kid) tan (kid) red, navy and gray. I wish they still made all these colors. I wash them over and over with my white towels with bleach, put shoe trees (stretchers) in them and let them air dry. Good as new! My 1at pair cost $5. I only wear them now since I have a bad back. No more high heels-boo. Ordering a new pair of white for Summer.
Thanks Minnetonka
