The Minnetonka 3 Layer Fringe Boot or the Minnetonka 5 Layer Fringe Boot?

January 9, 2010 • By Erika

Moccasin fringe boots have a tendency to look too American Indian on their own:

The Minnetonka 5 Layer Fringe Boot and the Minnetonka 3 Layer Fringe Boot

This is especially true for the brown suede color (frontmost), as that color is the most associated with Native American clothing (do a quick image search on Native American costumes and this color will practically fill up your entire screen).

But any fashion forward gal worth her wardrobe knows that any piece of clothing can be transformed into anything when styled properly. So when fashion icons, trendsetters, and celebs started snatching up these Minnetonka Layer Fringe Boots, their interpretations of this shoe made donning a headdress and playing cowboy and indians the last thing on our minds.

TV persona Carmen Electra goes for boho chic and wears a sweet off-shoulder dress with her Minnetonka 5 Layer Fringe Boots.

The shorter, less layered version is a bit more popular and has been seen on the feet of reality TV star Lauren Conrad, Disney star Miley Cyrus, and singer/actress Hilary Duff.

Lauren Conrad exudes glam by pairing her boots with a Chanel purse. Miley Cyrus is always the all-American teen in her denim shorts, black tank, fringe boots, and a Starbucks coffee (or two) in hand. Hilary Duff chooses to stay cool and casual and wears a simple shirt, scarf, and leggings ensemble with her fringe boots.

Should you go for the Minnetonka 5 Layer Fringe Boot or the Minnetonka 3 Layer Fringe Boot? It all depends on how much fringe you want and how much fringe you can take.

These layer fringe boots are available on Shoebuy, $97.95 for the 5 layer, $85.95 for the 3 layer.
