Madison Holler

Anishinaabe / Dutch / Scandinavian
"This sprawling scape of flora and fauna is a homage to the symmetry of all things, solstice to equinox, dusk to dawn, the blossom and the wilt, both right and wrong, anguish and joy, the whisper and the song. I wanted to showcase a few of my seasonal favorites and teachers from Anishinaabewaki land. From the loon's call in the late spring and the arrival of the butterflies, the floral blooms of summer, juicy blueberries of late July, the pine martens winter dance at twilight, to the deep winter soar of the bald eagle. The Dutch floral masters would paint still life with blooms that would likely never be arranged together. The plant life and insects they depicted lived seasons apart from one another or far from the other's natural habitat. All of these cherished kin, who could never hold a moment together, make our experience whole."

    Comfort and beauty

    These beautiful mukluks were comfortable the first time I put them on. I need arch support and my inserts fit well with plenty of space. The shaft is a little narrower than I was expecting but works fine with tights or leggings. I get compliments every time I wear them. The loon reminds me of my Minnesota home. For me, they are worth the price.

    Stunning Beadwork and Art

    The artwork and detailing of these boots are stunning in photos and in person. It's evident they are crafted with great care and the story feels beautiful to carry/wear along my path. The Gatherer is a perfect canvas for this art and subtle complimentary beadwork. Although some comments seek more cushion or filling in the sole, this does not align with my intention of connecting more to the land and being able to build natural strength in my body/ankles. "Ankle support" is not healthy/natural to wear - it degrades the area from developing it's own resilience to movement and weight. In short, these are the best footwear for those that want to be warm, healthy, and strong as they carry on their journeys.

    Beautiful love the embroidery bedding combo

    I adore them my first tobacco color….the color just works so well with this design. The only thing I would have liked to see is the bead work to be filled in with like a turquoise or some other colors. Native Americans are known for their bead work and it would have been beautiful to showcase it on this beautiful work of art. All that said they are beautiful!

Frequently asked questions

Absolutely! We make our moccasins and mukluks for everyone. By purchasing from us, you are participating in cultural appreciation, not cultural appropriation. When you purchase from Manitobah, you are directly supporting Indigenous people and celebrating Indigenous culture in an authentic, meaningful way that helping us in our vision to create positive impact in Indigenous communities.

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.
