Manitobah Mid Gatherer Mukluk
Foot Lining: Sheepskin Shearling
Materials: Grain Leather
Sole: Tipi Vibram
The 'mukluk' is an Aboriginal word for 'winter boot'. Our ancestors created them thousands of years ago out of natural hides in order to survive in the coldest places in Canada. This Mid Gatherer mukluk is a very iconic plains-style mukluk and has been passed down to us from generation to generation. Now as a contemporary Métis company, we continue 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.
