RELAXED TRADITION
Softsole twist on our iconic classic.
Our traditional Thunderbird moccasin was introduced in 1955 and became famous in gift shops across the country. Handmade from the highest-quality suede or smooth leather, the comfy softness wraps all the way around to the moc’s sole for an almost barefoot feel. These distinct hand beaded moccasins are the perfect way to express yourself.

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.

84 years of comfort

I am probably one of your oldest moccasin wearers! I started wearing Minnetonka softsole Thunderbirds when I was 13 years old (they cost $2.98 at that time). I just turned 84 and still wear those comfy things. Have gone through many pairs of them. Just a few years ago I learned about duct taping the soles and they last longer that way. Love my mocs! And will be ordering another pair very soon. [...]

Love these mocs!

Like so many others here, I've worn Minnetonkas since I was around 15 or 16; that would be the 70s. I've had so many pairs, I forget the ones I've had but the Thunderbirds fit my feet the best because of the rounded toes. The sharper pointed toes, i.e. driving moccasins, get too narrow at the toe and the stitching winds up breaking and unraveling all the way around the shoe. Even with a larger size, after about 1 summer, they are done. So! I stick with the Thunderbirds and I've got soft soles, hard soles, suede, leather in many colors. LOVE 'EM [...]

Great shoes

Been wearing these soft sole mocs for well over 50 years. I was a stylist for many years and I even worked in these shoes. Would make an annual trip to Gatlinburg every year to buy a new pair. I've worn the others with soles and even wore the kidskin and suede but these are my favorite. Probably be buried in them if I have my way. [...]
