Minnetonka Moccasins and Slippers are unsurpassed in their combination of comfort and style. Wearing their relaxed, casual footwear showcases your unique fashion sense, while letting you secretly enjoy the cozy comfort that's built into all their shoes.
Minnetonka entered the footwear scene back in 1946, being sold at roadside gift shops along America's classic highways. Over the years, they have naturally transitioned into accomodating the very latest fashion trends. Through the 1960's and 1970's, fringe-laden styles symbolized and showcased the independent spirit of women all across the country. In the 1980's, the Urban Cowboy craze took over, prompting a surge in popularity of their Thunderbird Moccasin footwear line. The 2000's saw a reigniting of the Boho Chic lifestyle and the Bohemian style became all the rage, again driving the popularity of all their footwear.
Minnetonka states they are a "Proudly independent 4th generation family-run business...dedicated to preserving the unique hand crafstmanship of our products." Today all of Minnetonka's products are still expertly handcrafted, using premium deerskin and moosehides and are produced in the Dominican Republic, and also in China. In recent years, Minnetonka has promoted their innovative "Me-to-We" Moccasin Program, which helps women in Africa become global, independent businesswomen.
