Four years ago I was about to start my junior year of high school at a new school on the West Coast. I had lived in North Carolina for much of my life and I was a little intimidated.
When the first day of school rolled around, I wore a brand-new pair of leather moccasins I had purchased at Ross for $8. They were dark brown with beads and fringed leather. They served me well and I brought them with me when I moved back east to attend university.
Fast-forward to now. I still have my first pair--and wear them frequently--but they're starting to fall apart. I think it may be time for a new pair. I'm looking for something classic and sturdy; something that will stay with me for four more years of adventures. These Minnetonkas seem to fit the bill.
