PRAISE FOR HOUSE MOC
Very pleased with product for appearance and comfort. Excellent service from your staff at all times. Was also happy with your choice of purolater for delivery. Had no problems locating order and picking up. Just received a second order delivered by UPS was home all day at delivery address and it was just dropped off by leaning against door no hearable knock felt lucky I found it before it disappeared.
Great slippers, but not made in Canada
The slippers are really nice. Cozy, plush and with a cute beading detail. But, I guess with the overall vibe and the story on the website I thought these were Canadian-made. They are Canadian owned and operated, and I suppose you wouldn't get them for the price if they were made here, but I was slightly disappointed they're made in Vietnam.
Love the purchase
this purchase was for our son's as part of his birthday present, we have been purchasing Manitobah slippers product since 1991, and it quickly became a tradition to buy and replace a well worn one with a new pair. we love how comfortable and durable they are . Thus far we have been purchasing the Tipi's, the House Moc and the Deerskins, we have been very pleased with every types of slippers bought.
Easy to order! Willing do it again
This was purchased as a gift. The recipient was extremely happy with the quality of the moccasins
Many of our signature products are made at our headquarters in Winnipeg, Canada, including our Iconic Kanada Collection as well as our Métis, Corrine Hunt, and Deerskin collections. Our Storyboot items are handcrafted by elders and artisans in Indigenous communities.To make our brand more accessible to more people and to compete with other global fashion brands, we also produce some of our products internationally. You can filter with a drop-down menu on our mukluk or moccasin pages – simply select Made in Canada to view that collection.
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.
