The Minnetonka brand started life making moccasins for Americans in the late 1940s. The new affluence after WW2 allowed people to travel to sites and natural wonders they had only ever read about. They wanted something ‘genuine’ to bring home to remind them of their holidays and over the years each generation introduced their children to the brand. As a result, Minnetonka moccasins are now certainly a true American classic.
Every self-respecting hippie and flower child had a pair in the 1960s; their children wore them as a ‘Preppie’ look in the 1970s and 80s, while in the 90s, the Thunderbird mocc was all the rage in France. More recently, Kate Moss has shown herself to be a lover of this iconic style, and fashionistas all over the world have followed suit.
Like any ‘classic’ they have evolved and developed over the years but always with respect to their heritage; always made in soft leather and suede, in the traditional, one-piece style with beads or fringes. And always wonderfully comfortable and wearable.
Perhaps it’s because Minnetonkas aren’t really about fashion that they’re never out of style. Shop the complete range of moccasins for men, women and kids here at OFFICE today, for the latest styles befitting your smart casual occasions.
