"I love Minnetonka shoes! They are high quality, well made & durable. They are really built to last. I bought them in the fall & wore them through all sorts of wet, wintery weather & they are no worse for the wear! I literally wear them everyday & even without treating them, they look great, next to new. The suede is not at all discolored or scuffed. The fringe still lays perfectly & the fur is perfectly fluffy & looks real but isn't which I appreciate. I have gotten so used to shoes practically being disposable & ruined after a season, & not so with Minnetonka's! I look forward to wearing them next winter as well!They aren't waterproof, so they will get wet, my feet are a little wide, so sometimes moisture creeps up around the side, but just know they will dry & you would never know it. I would recommend wearing a thick wool sock with them for warmth, so I went up a half size from what I normally wear in their moccasin. Even a whole size up would work if you plan on wearing a thicker sock, as they do run a bit narrow & snug.On top of having fashion & durability, they are comfortable! No arch support, just simple flat, flexible sole. A bit on the thin side, that's where the thick sock comes in, but perfect for spring, winter & fall walks in the city!"
