Our AuthenTEC Waterproof System is inspired by pine pitch and spruce gum, the traditional waterproofing materials used by our ancestors. The Waterproof Half Mukluk is made with waterproof suede and is sealed 4" from the bottom. It is sheepskin lined (like all of our mukluks) and is rated to -32C.
The 'mukluk' is an Indigenous word for 'winter boot'. Our ancestors created them thousands of years ago out of natural hides and fur in order to survive in the coldest places in Canada. The Half Mukluk is based on our iconic mukluk silhouette, but with the versatility of a short boot. The style has been passed down to us from generation to generation. Now as a contemporary Métis company, we continue the tradition by combining modern techniques and materials to make functional mukluks for urban environments. The sole was made in partnership between Vibram and an Indigenous artist.

Smudging with Sweet Grass In Native American culture, braided sweet grass is believed to attract good spirits, energies, and influences. Sweet grass, with its sweet aroma reminding people of the love, kindness, and gentleness provided by Mother Earth, is known to have a calming effect and is often used during talking circles and healings. We use sweet grass during smudging to call in the good Spirit.
