The best weather of the year comes during late summer and early fall, when the heat breaks and the outdoors daytime activities give way to grilled dinner on the porch. It’s at this time—when it gets too cool for sandals but boots feel too heavy—that slipping on some super soft moccasins is the way to go. Whether you realize it or not, Minnetonka’s handcrafted moccasins are everywhere, and for good reason. Minnetonka is a fourth generation, still-family-run business with over 72 years experience taking luxury materials like deerskin and moosehide and crafting them into versatile footwear, as perfect for a business lunch as for family lounging during Thanksgiving. Their high-quality craftsmanship means you can wear any of the buttery soft options from the men's and women's luxe line of moccasins and loafers for many seasons (with or without socks!) — and you can pick them up at a deceptively reasonable price point: the men’s double deerskin softsole pictured here is $87.95. (The women’s version is $73.95.) Get whichever pair of ultra-soft Minnetonkas are your style to wear throughout fall this year—and for years to come.
