The ‘mukluk’ is an Indigenous word for ‘winter boot’. Our ancestors created them thousands of years ago out of natural hides in order to survive in the coldest places in Canada. Now as a contemporary Métis company, we continue the tradition by combining modern techniques and materials to make functional mukluks for urban environments. The footbed is sheepskin-lined and the sole was made in partnership between Vibram and an Indigenous artist.

The Hummingbird & Flower mukluk pattern was designed by Indigenous artist Corrine Hunt. To Corrine, the hummingbird is a symbol of peace, tranquility, community, nurturing and love. “The hummingbird has a pleasant energy; it is unlike any other bird,” she says. The Hummingbird and Flower design reminds us of the connectivity between all living things; the hummingbird draws from the flower as the flower draws from the Earth.  In this design, Corrine honours a ceremonious circle of life.  We are bound through our connectedness and are therefore bound to care for each other- just as the Earth, the flower and the hummingbird are bound and connected.
