Waterproof Tamarack Ankle

When shoes dream of becoming boots…

…This is what they dream. A streamlined take on the classic mukluk silhouette, the Tamarack Ankle Mukluk showcases the minimalist genius of our ancestors’ design. We made it sleek and simple, highlighted by subtle etching that elevates the boot’s aesthetic—but also practical in a modern ankle height. It boasts a cozy sheepskin-lined footbed and is sealed against water to a height of four inches from the bottom. Rated to -32C. Just slip in and give winter the boot.

Review of Waterproof Tamarack Ankle boots

Love the boots. They are comfortable, warm and waterproof. Just one negative, for some odd reason which I have yet to figure out, my socks are slowly pulled off in the boots. I have to stop every now and then to pull them up. It helps if I wear long, tight-fitting socks.

Great Footwear

Well made, beautiful quality; these ankle boots are comfortable, cozy and stylish! I bought for my adult daughter and she loves them. Looks cute with leggings or skinny jeans especially!

Returned them

Have a pair of the taller ones and love them! However, the shorter ones left a lot of room open around the ankle. Afraid my feet/ankles would get cold. Returned them.

Warm and cozy

These boots are so comfortable- like wearing an outdoor slipper (but of course they hold up to the Canadian elements!). They are great to slip on for running errands while still looking cute!

Best little winter boots ever!!

They are exactly what I hoped they would be, easy to slip on and off, keep my feet dry and warm as I zip about a wintery day, good to drive in and not heavy or bulky, not to mention they’re insanely cute!!!

Frequently asked questions

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.
