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.

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

An excellent product.

I've been wearing the T-Bird moccasins for 40+ years. It is so nice to count on a product for quality that never changes. The Thunderbird boat moc was what I was given way back when and I've stuck with that style. Why would I change such a terrific choice? Love them! [...]

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! [...]

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? [...]

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. [...]
