How to Measure Your Foot Complete the following steps:
1 Helpful tip: Measure your feet later in the day - feet tend to swell and will be slightly larger then.
2 Before measuring, wear the socks that you plan to use with the shoes.
3 Place one foot on top of a piece of paper on a solid floor or surface and trace the outline of your foot, making sure to point the pen or pencil straight down.
4 Using a ruler or measuring tape, find the longest part of your foot by measuring a straight line from the tip of your longest toe to the back of the heel. For the most accurate reading, use centimeters.
5 Repeat the process on your other foot and use the larger of the two measurements if necessary. You may also want to add 1 to 1.5 centimeters to account for comfortable movement inside the shoe.
6 Use the chart above to find your size. Please note that sizing may vary slightly depending on the style and/or design of the footwear.

What is a Traditional Fit?

Some of our mukluks and natural-soled moccasins are not built on a traditional foot last (the solid form on which most shoes are molded), so there is no "left" or "right" foot. This method has been used on Indigenous footwear for thousands of years. It's completely natural for the shoes to feel slightly "off" or awkward when new, but over time the natural materials will form to your foot and allow you to have a completely custom fit.

Waterproof

Perfect for slush.

The AuthenTEC Waterproof System lets you take on winter in style with boots crafted with three layers of waterproof sealant, rich waterproof leather and suede and a full sheepskin footbed that keeps you dry and cozy all day.

Manitobah conducts rigorous waterproof and temperature testing using a minimum 50,000 flex standard.

Care Guide

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 recommended Care Kit.


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.

    Best winter boots ever.

    They are warm, comfortable and easy to put on and take off. As well, they are beautiful! I'm very grateful for the guidance in choosing the correct fit. The ladies explained the fit needs to be snug for best results. I usually wear size 7. We went with a 6 for the boots. They are perfect. I trust these boots will definitely keep my toes warm., unlike other brands that say my feet will be warm and never are on our colder days.

    Great

    I was unsure about the size because of the advice that they'd stretch. They did and they fit perfectly. They are also the most comfortable boots I have and I love that they're waterproof.

    Warm, dry feet

    Well made, beautiful design, and very effective against cold, wet, and slipping on the ice. I feel comfortable, warm and safe and when I look down I see flowers. What could be better ?

    Not 100% water proof

    I absolutely love these! Very comfortable warm. My only down fall is they are not 100% water proof my toes get wet.

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.

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.
