Keep cozy in these canoe suede moccasins from Manitobah Mukluks, a Canadian essential for cold winters. Offering a supple feel and exuding casual elegance from the proudly Canadian and customer favourite brand, Manitobah Mukluks, these moccasins are made in a traditional fashion with distinctive leather and beadwork to reflect the individual Métis customs and culture. The unique, artistic beadwork design is hand sewn individually and is a signature of Manitobah Mukluk's Aboriginal design. Crafted with traditional production techniques that result in the utmost quality, when you look at the beauty and craftsmanship of this moccasin shoe it becomes clear why Aboriginal-inspired footwear has become a fashion trend that's popular with celebrities and fashion icons worldwide.
Made with a durable suede upper and lining, you'll adore the detailing of this lace toe piece that features classic geometric beading. This authentic, fashionable footwear flawlessly connects traditional craftsmanship with new materials and production techniques.
Even the Turtle Vibram™ soles of these shoes are works of art with a design by First Nations artist Heather Steppler. They feature beautiful symbolism significant in Aboriginal culture, including the life energy that connects all things, the life-sustaining prairie grasses and the origin myth for North America that tells of how the land grew from a clump of soil on Turtle's shell. To honour the way of their ancestors, Manitobah Mukluks utilizes furs and leather after a hunt to turn these "waste" by-products into fashionable footwear that will last for years to come and follow the sustainable traditions of their ancestors.
This pair makes an affordable and original gift, so don't forget to pick up a pair for a loved one in addition to the ones you scoop up for yourself. They are a wonderful way to join the past and the present to make beautiful footprints into your future.
