Crystal's Story: Crystal Behn-Dettieh is of Dene and Carrier ancestry. She was born and raised in Treaty 8 traditional territory and now currently resides in her community of Fort Nelson First Nation in northern British Columbia, along with her husband and three beautiful children. Crystal grew up watching her mother make and sell beaver fur hats, mitts, mukluks and moccasins worldwide. Sadly her mother passed away from cancer while Crystal was still in her addiction. Two years into her sobriety and pregnant with her first child, Crystal felt it of upmost importance that she learned from her grandmother the ways of her people and respect her culture just as her Mom, Grandma and Auntie Elaine have taught her. Traditional native crafting has been her passion for just under a decade. Until only recently she has always kept or given away her beautiful pieces. It wasn't until Crystal walked away with three first place wins that she felt confident to share her tradition passed down from generation to generation with the world. Crystal also invites you to her new facebook and website page "In Her Footsteps".  In her spare time she enjoys cooking, gardening, painting, spending time at her family's cabin on the trapline, hunting and raising her family.

Crystal invites you to contact her (250-500-1848) if you have purchased an item and would like to see pictures of the process in making your piece.

Art and sole.

Our flexible, durable sole promotes circulation and barefoot-like comfort.

Our high-performance Vibram® sole is also the canvas for Indigenous art. The Tipi design was created exclusively for us by indigenous artist Heather Endall.

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.


Proudly crafting the world’s finest Indigenous-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 Indigenous-owned production facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

International Production.

Local Commitment.

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 Indigenous 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 Indigenous Canadians is to get as many people wearing Manitobah Mukluks as possible.

Our success allows us to work with more local artists, showcase successful Indigenous role models and bring our culture to the world. We also invest in education and employment through our partnership with the Centre for Indigenous 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 Indigenous business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.

Thank you for walking with us.
