A ’mukluk’ is an Aboriginal word for ’winter boot’, created thousands of years ago out of natural hides and fur in order to survive in the coldest places in Canada. As a contemporary Métis company, Manitobah continues the tradition by combining modern techniques and materials to make functional mukluks for urban environments. The footbed is sheepskin-lined and the sole was made in partnership between Vibram and an Aboriginal artist.
