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.

  • 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.

Best Purchase!!!

These mocs seem to be the same high quality that they were many years past (and for a fair price), as opposed to the ever-flimsier, over-priced footwear other manufacturers are currently foisting onto the market. They are shaped correctly; other brands save themselves money by making shoes more narrow or by skimping materials in the toe-box and instep. I could not be more pleased. I bought the mocs as a gift for Mom, who, after years of settling for misshapen, uncomfortable shoes, slipped right into her Thunderbirds! She can actually walk more easily while wearing them. This is the best purchase I've made in years! [...]

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. [...]

Grey!

Another vote for bringing back well-loved colors; specifically, the smooth grey leather with the white soles I had in junior high. They went with everything, so I wore them with everything. Still would. : ) [...]

Great mocs

I've been wearing Minnetonka mocs for years (since a kid and now 70) and absolutely LOVE them! I've had both hard soled and soft soled and wear them until they are no more. My last pair was discontinued (similar to the boat moc but in soft deer-type leather) and I finally found these as a replacement after wearing them for about 10-12 years! That's value!!! [...]

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! [...]
