    Im in serious need of a pair for years i have been loving them from a distance and they look so comfy but i just cant decided between brown and black! Anyone have ideas? For some reason i love the brown but feel like they might be a little hard to wear as its almost an orange tone to it. What do you guys think? Also would you trust this website https://www.buddysmoccasins.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?
    It seems okay, but im so paranoid with these things!! Shoebuy doesnt have the natural colours :(

    ^I would go with black personally.

    But I still don't really get these shoes. There's are 'Minnesota' themed stores here at the Mall of America packed full of them, along with frumpy grandma sweatshirts and the like. I just can't think it's really cool.

    I dunno, I wear a pair with my outfits a lot of the time, and since most of my outfits don't involve Minnesota sweatshirts, they give off a different sort of vibe, I really like mine, and am trying to find a pair of the suede kilty in purple, any suggestions??

    I didn't give in to this trend a few years back, and now i want a pair of the boots, do they really run a hole size large?

    It's so funny. My sister and I are the only two persons who own a pair of minnetonkas in our whole town. Well, we have to be the coolest there. :lol:
    I love these shoes, they're so comfortable it's almost frightening.

    Why would one want to spend 495$ on a pair of Jimmy Choo booties when they can have the original Minnetonkas for much less? :rolleyes:

    I have Minnetonka moccassins .. not the boots but the slip-ons. In brown nubuk. They're not the prettiest shoes ever but certainly the comfiest, seriously, I never want to take them off! And they do look good still. In a kind of quirky way.

    Too bad these type of shoes don't have that much support. After an hour it's like my feet are stepping on rocks. But I still love em. I really need to buy a pair. They had some on sale at Aldo's.

    I agree the pricing for the choo's is absurd, considering they are a knockoff but somehow i still love them. They jumped at me from the lookbook. I agree with the others that still love these. I'd love a pair of the short booties for spring

    I saw a girl wearing these in class the other day. they were partially folded down and I thought they were very cute! I like those supported by Mama Ritchie and Ms. Bilson above. I agree with meg on the short booties sentiment! I think I might get the above... What short booties does everyone else prefer?

    I am still sporting the mocs from many years ago, they're still holding up! I absolutely cannot stand seeing the moccasin slippers that are only intended for home use out on the streets (the cheap, cheap target ones with so much faux fur, cotton-ball stuff inside.... they are as painful to me as what uggs are to others :lol: )

    i was on the site a couple hours ago and noticed those too! i might have a look around my hometown though first. I come from an area with a long First Nations history and large population so I feel it would probably be better to support the local community than buy from minnetonka, even if it is slightly more expensive. I hope they have some cute styles like the above though....

    Im looking for a tall boot that I can scrunch down for a different look. I kind of like Rachels. I think Kate scrunched hers down before... does anyone have any pics? The only problem is Im only 5 foot so Im not sure how scrunched those tall lace up ones would look on me but Im not sure if I like all the fringes on the ones Rachel is wearing. What to do lol.

    ^minnetonka's headquarters are very close to my hometown, so i guess i feel supportive :lol: ... but, i might also look to more local places (gives a certain unique effect to the whole boot, at least... nobody can walk in to the Walking Company and look just like you... )

    tiffany7, i just don't think the front lace-up boots would look very decent if you scrunched them too much.

    these are the boots Rachel is wearing, I think they are your best bet.


    Maybe the boots that lace on the side would look better scrunched down? but then again the website claims they are made for a more "streamlined look":

    Your probably right. I know Kate scrunched her lace up boots down & they looked good but shes way taller than me so it probably wouldnt look good on me.
