Very nice, good quality, but it is true that they are sized smaller than size so you may want to order up a size for these shoes
Finally found what I’ve always wanted
I love the look and the price point .. got them online .. they are very traditional looking .. and I finally bought them .. in worth it ☺️✌️
I ordered the white and they are beautiful. I did read the reviews before ordering as I usually size down in my Mukluks, I ordered a 7, which is my size and I am glad that I did, as they are quite narrow and are a snug fit. Even with some expected softening of the leather, consider sizing up if you have anything other than a narrow foot. Would order again.
Grain Leather when available as an option are beautiful!
Size was a bit close to my foot, but the foot bed wasn't too small. They have slightly stretched to fit my foot perfectly. Fuzzy lining is great for mixed weather. I love feeling the ground through my shoe souls and these allow that. High Ten! Manitobah Mukluks Rock! #LuluWCLifestyle www.luluwclifestyle.com for collabs!

Terribly Disappointed in Harvester Grain Leather boot
I originally ordered this item C695075 in Size 7 at full price as a Christmas present. The boot looks beautiful but was much too small although the wearer’s shoe size is Women’s 7. (She has a relatively small and narrow foot.)I tried to exchange the item for a much larger Size 9 but was told that wasn’t possible and that I would need to return the boot and reorder the larger size which I did on order C727391 on January 9/23. At that time the boot had been reduced in price from $150 to $99.99 and was now a “final sale”. We were reasonably sure that going up 2 shoe sizes was a safe bet to fit. Boy were we wrong! There may have been a very slight adjustment in foot length but the ankle fit and boot height that surrounds the ankle and lower leg seem to fit the very same as the Size 7. So now we have are stuck with a very strange fitting pair of boots that will fit nobody and cannot be returned!! I rated this 1 star because there was no option for zero! Despite the poor boot review which I intend to follow up with customer service, the child’s fleece lined moccasins fit perfectly and he loves them! Wish I’d bought the same for his mother instead of the boot!
To make our brand more accessible, to support our social impact initiatives, and to allow us to compete with other global fashion brands, we produce our products in international ethical partner factories. Our factory partners that support our growing product line go through an in-depth 3rd party inspection and internal Social Compliance Audit. These high standards are continually monitored and respected. We are proud of our manufacturing policies and our ability to build capacity globally. We believe that our success as an Indigenous business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.
Manitobah Mukluks makes a variety of products that match Canada's diverse climates. We offer select styles of adult mukluks that are waterproof. Those styles are tagged online as waterproof and can be seen here.
Both styles of children's mukluks are waterproof. They have been treated with our AuthenTEC waterproofing system; treated hide and an internal flexible coating that is inspired by pine pitch and spruce gum. Manitobah conducts rigorous waterproof and temperature testing using a minimum 50,000 flex standard.
The rest of the adult mukluks are constructed with natural suede and leather which are not sealed and not considered waterproof. We recommend treating them with a leather/suede protector to help with water resistance and general protection. All of our MUKLUKS are insulated with sheepskin footbeds and most are constructed with untreated suede which is porous (and not considered waterproof). These natural materials need to breathe in order to be effective in extreme cold. Indigenous people have been surviving in the coldest climates for thousands of years using this very wisdom.
Protection: Use a silicone-based leather/suede protector. Do not spray fur, as it contains natural protective oils. We offer a protecting spray as part of our Care Kit here.
To Clean: Leather can be cleaned using a gentle soap and soft brush. For salt, wipe down with a damp cloth. Even if they have been sprayed, salt is corrosive and can cause damage.
To Dry: Once wet, allow your footwear to dry naturally
Wear: Never pull fur when putting on or removing boot, fur sheds over time and frequent friction will cause the fur to shed much faster. Cross laces over before tightening to avoid tearing leather eyeholes
Storage: When ready to store them for the season you should clean them, allow them to dry and then pack them away in a sealed container away from heat, moisture and pets (a plastic storage tote works great.) You can also use a pool noodle or something similar in the shaft to keep them upright during storage.
Our traditional Mukluks and natural soled Moccasins are not built on a traditional foot last so there is no left or right foot. This method has been used on Indigenous footwear for thousands of years. Over time the natural materials will form to your foot and allow you to have a custom fit. Moccasins with the turtle vibram sole and all of our kids mukluks do have a left and right foot.
Our sheepskin-lined mukluks are considered one of the warmest winter boots for northern winters and are rated down to -32 degrees Celsius. Partnering with Vibram has also allowed us to design a sole that allows your foot to bend. Research indicates that flexible soles promote proper foot movement and blood circulation to your toes. This means that in cold dry weather, our mukluks will allow your feet to stay warmer than almost anything on the market.
