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.

Sizing & Features

  • Fit: Runs large; order ½ to full size down
  • Smooth leather or soft suede
  • Padded insole
  • Boat sole
  • Imported

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.

Wish this came in narrow

I used to wear the boat moc and loved it, but Minnetonka stopped making it in narrow. I tried ordering it smaller but that didn't work and I have to return them. Do any Minnetonka mocs, boots, or shoes come in narrow widths? I'd be a good customer if they did! [...]

LONG LASTING!

You guys, I bought a pair of these moccasins ten years ago and still wear them. I wore them through college, all throughout study abroad, and into my adult life, and they are still freaking in shape and cute. I have the navy blue ones, not the suede. I still get compliments on them. It's crazy. [...]

Best ever!

I wore Minnetonka Thunderbird Boat Mocs almost 40 years ago. I had them in pink, lavender and white. Ok, it was the 80's. I've rediscovered them again and fell in love. The most comfortable, long lasting shoe ever! Please bring back colors in the leather Boat Moc!!! Coral, Mint, Pale Yellow anyone? [...]

Bring back the smooth red leather

I love these mocs. Comfortable and durable. Wish though you would bring back the smooth red leather thunderbird boat mocs. I have resorted to buying them used on E-Bay. I don't like the colors that you offer as new. [...]

Dependable Quality

Same superior quality that my first Minnetonka moccasins had back in 1980's. Got the navy this time and love them. Please do know that the sizing runs very large - ordered 1 size down and still a little wide but can wear comfortably. [...]

Best Shoes Ever !!!

My husband surprised me with a pair of Thunderbird Boat Mocs about 6 yrs ago and I am still wearing them! Still in great condition even tho I wear them every day, inside and out. I now have a new back up pair, same kind and same color. They fit perfectly, no rubbing or slipping ever and oh so comfy! I will also be trying a pair of soft soles and would love a pair of red ones!! Wish I had found these years and years ago. Great product! [...]

Loved my red

I always get compliments on these shoes, I have been wearing the RED smooth leather ones for 15 years. They are so comfortable to wear. The shoes keep your feet warm in the colder months but keep your feet cool during the spring and summer. I am on my second pair and due to buy my third. I was so upset when I saw they discontinued it, please bring them back! [...]

Another awesome pair of minnetonka moccasins.

I absolutely love these. These shoes are so comfortable and cute. I went a full size down from my normal shoe size and the fit is perfect. I recommend ordering a full size smaller. They fit like the kilty. I really like them. I will definitely get another color. [...]
