after years of yearning for them, i finally got myself a pair of minnetonka boots recently..and i'm afraid i'm not going to stop at this one pair. i was just talking to one of my girlfriends, a proud owner of a few minnetonkas already, about how interesting it is that a local retailer used to carry them, but they were around for only a single season..the minnetonka trend obviously couldn't find its way through the invasion of uggs. and timberlands. and hunters. whatever the reason might be, it's better for us both.
