My mocs came a few days ago. I love them. To have footwear that fits both feet, of very unequal size, is a luxury I never thought I would experience. Love the orange hide with the blue laces. I just don't ever want to take them off! ...

I want to talk about the amazing customer service, follow up and problem resolution from Sam, who is the manager of the retail store. She spent two hours trying to help with a shipping issue from a mail order I had made. Bottom line, Sam went far above what any other company would do to make sure the gift of moccasins arrived. Give her a raise or at least buy her lunch! ...
I ordered a pair of men’s leitner Mocs last week. They came in the mail today. I needed to let people know just how amazing these shoe really are. I am a very picky individual.

Since undergoing a change in ownership in April 2012, Itasca Leathergoods has been lucky enough to have been featured with articles in several major newspapers as well as online blogs. Some, such as Northland Press' article of May 2012 or the "Fun Finds" feature of the May/June 2012 Lake Country Journal Magazine aren't featured online. Others, however, have online links.
We maintain a Facebook page that acts as a blog for our customers and interested parties.
The major newspaper of Park Rapids, MN, the Enterprise, did a major feature focusing on the recent growth of the company and expansion of its workforce with the headline Creating Stylish New Moccasins in July 2012.
The Star Tribune (Minneapolis' primary daily) featured us in early June 2012. The newsprint edition of the paper featured us in a half-page article on the Style+Fashion page, but the online version combined us with another article and put us as the second half of the article under the Getting Comfy With Moccasins tagline. If you can find the paper edition, it's a great feature!
Mpls/StPaul Magazine's online blog, Ali Shops, featured Itasca Leathergoods in June 2012, pointing out our style and custom order capacity. We loved her headline: Turquoise Moccasins. Yes.
In May 2012, we hired professional photographer Jenny Lunde to shoot images for some promotional pieces, billboards, advertising, and our 2012 website re-launch. Many of the product images were taken by Jenny, who set the standard we continue to follow. She also featured us in her blog.
