International Production. Local Commitment.

Foot Lining: Sheepskin Shearling
Height: 15" Tall
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 Tall 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. 

Our Vision

As an Aboriginal-owned company, our vision is to build a vibrant, global brand that makes a significant impact in Aboriginal communities.

About the Artist

Heather Steppler
Wolf Clan, Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation

Heather Steppler’s maternal ancestors were musically, artistically, and spiritually inclined and include traditional birch bark biters and medicine women.

After obtaining a Fine Arts degree, Heather embraced her heritage by learning beading, medicine picking, Aboriginal crafts, and attending powwows with her husband and two children.

Art Meets Technology

The world’s finest traditional footwear, from the ground up.

When it came time to develop footwear for the city, we challenged Vibram®, the world leader in high-performance rubber soles, to design a sole that could withstand the effects of urban environments.

Manufacturing

Proudly crafting the world’s finest Aboriginal-inspired footwear.

At Manitobah, we use high-quality materials and talented artisans to create the best mukluks and moccasins in the world. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce Manitobah footwear and we take great pride in the comfort, function and beauty we create.

We also take pride in being Canadian, which is why we continue to produce 20 per cent of our footwear at our Aboriginal-owned production facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

International Production.

Local Commitment.

Dear Friends:

Thanks to our incredible global community, Manitobah Mukluks has grown. To achieve this growth we’ve found global partners to help us produce some of our products internationally. I believe this expansion in our production leads to a bigger local impact.

As an Aboriginal Canadian, AUTHENTIC to me means being engaged in and contributing to my community. It also means respecting our history while creating positive change for the future. And the best way for me to bring about that change for Aboriginal Canadians is to get as many people wearing Manitobah Mukluks as possible.

Our success allows us to work with more local artists, showcase successful Aboriginal role models and bring our culture to the world. We also invest in education and employment through our partnership with the Centre for Aboriginal Human Resource Development, and I’m particularly proud of our Storyboot project, which helps revive traditional arts in our communities through business-building partnerships with elders and artisans who fashion mukluks and moccasins the traditional way.

Our Walk With Us program is also making a difference by allowing our customers to share in our vision and direct a portion of their sale to the Manitobah program of their choice. It’s simple. For every pair of Manitobah Mukluks sold, we make a bigger impact in our community.

We are proud of our success on the world stage and we welcome the opportunity to compete against all fashion brands. We will continue to make Manitobah more accessible to more people, and we will continue to make footwear using the same high-quality materials and thousand year-old designs that define us — whether it’s a handcrafted Storyboot, Canadian-made item or a mukluk or moccasin produced outside of Canada. I believe that our success as an Aboriginal business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.

Thank you for walking with us.
