I owned a pair of white Minnetonka mocc’s when I was 8. I thought they were the moon and stars of shoes, so cool, especially with their seed beed embellishment in a ubiquitous Thunderbird pattern. Nothing says Native American quite like white mocc’s and a Thunderbird thrown in for good measure, right? I have been pining for a new pair for a while now, I bought some cheap imitations last year and they proceeded to fall apart within a week–lesson learned. I would have picked up a pair sooner but I am having trouble choosing a color. The natural is always a safe bet but the scarlet ones are this side of sassy. I think they are perfect for walking the girls, going to the grocery or whatever errand that concerns shoes and not thinking too hard about what I am going to wear. I would like to wear them with a striped tissue cotton t-shirt, olive cargo jeans and this necklace to complete the ‘ I’m not thinking too hard about what I am wearing’ ensemble.
