Traditional mukluks were once a necessity in the lives of Inuit and Indigenous communities in the coldest regions of North America. Made with layers of skins and hides laced around the feet and calves, they were warm, waterproof, and flexible for walking in winter conditions.

Mukluks were so serviceable, they were immediately adopted by European settlers in the 17th century for survival in the “New World,” many of whom had never experienced blizzards, wind chill, or freezing temperatures. Their colonial trading posts had an indelible influence on tribal artistry and design as new, imported materials became available. Eventually organic decorative elements like feathers, quills, and moose-hair tufts were enhanced or replaced by pompoms, beadwork, and ready-made textiles, especially for tourists.

Today's mukluks are an integration of traditional and contemporary features, crafted for classic warmth and exceptional quality and appearance.

Laurentian Chief’s 12” Snowshoe Mukluks for Women are an example of this evolution. Influenced in design by Indigenous boots once worn with snowshoes, they are made from genuine moose hide leather and lined with thick fleece for the ultimate in cold weather comfort. The suede gusseted tongue keeps out ice and snow, and the durable Marron Italia treaded sole provides stability in slippery conditions.

The rich leather boot shaft is accented with a vivid, earthy, Native American-inspired tapestry, sure to brighten even the drabbest of grey winter days. The suede maple leaf badge on the side of each mukluk is an emblem of their premium Canadian craftsmanship.

    In response to Jim: Sadly we do not carry a boot that is waterproof. But by treating your boot with a protectant, you will be making them water resistant.
