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.

Description

Why does winter have to end?

That's the question you'll be asking after slipping into this streamlined take on the classic mukluk silhouette. We made the Tamarack mukluk sleek and simple, highlighting its minimalist beauty with subtle etching and braided features that elevate its aesthetic. We also made this boot extremely practical. Tamarack boasts a cozy sheepskin-lined footbed and is sealed against water to a height of four inches from the bottom. Rated to -25F.

Technical Specs

Foot Lining: Sheepskin Shearling
Height: 13.5" Tall
Materials: Grain Leather
Sole: Glacier Grip Tipi Sole
Shaft Circumference: 16"
Temperature Rating: to -25F
(in active use)
Waterproof: Yes

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.

    Unique boots

    I recently received these boots from gift card Christmas gift. I am a size 8 1/2 wide and was told by manitobah staff to size down. Had to return the 8 and size up to a 9. Return process went smoothly although UPS was very slow on the return. I have tested these in wet slushy snowy conditions, out in the weather for a few hours at a time, and they still look like new. Kept my feet dry and warm. Have not had the opportunity to test them in frigid temps yet, under 25F. I'm liking these boots! For those questioning left or right foot, the braided long tassle is on outside of the boot when you're wearing them. Simple. It will all work itself out. Enjoy!!

    Welcome to Heaven

    These may be the best winter boots I've ever worn. They are beautiful, well-made, and keep my feet warm. Two things I like the best are easy-on/easy-off AND my socks don't slip as I walk. Well done Manitobah! Highest recommendation.

    Polyester faux fur on the inside !

    I received my Waterproof Tamarack today. They look awesome and are very confortable. I am somewhat disappointed though because the materials tag indicates the interior is made of polyester faux fur. This wasn’t mentioned in the website description of the boot. I guess I just assumed that since the exterior is made of real leather, the interior would be real fur or wool. I am concerned about beathability and durability of the faux fur. I will wear them for a while and come back for a review.

    Disappointed with boots

    This is my second pair of the tamarack boot. I live in Winnipeg, where this company originated and love to support local, we experience very cold winters (-40+). My first pair was purchased pre covid and my feet sweat in them, they were so warm and thick, good quality feeling. Unfortunately, the waterproofing and any warmth was gone the second winter. Tried multiple times to spray them but constantly had wet feet. After purchasing their sheepskin insoles, they added the warmth back but we’re very uncomfortable because they shift every time you put your foot in and out, even after trimming to the right size. My new ones however did not have the same good, thick insulating feel of my previous ones and after some research discovered that they now are pretty much made in China. Stylish looking but cheaply made. I have had them for only 2 weeks now and do about 3-4 hours of outdoor recess supervision and walking a day in -15 to -25°c so far and are having to wear a second pair of socks to avoid cold feet. I would have returned them but after purchasing online I received an emailed receipt stating ALL SALE ITEMS ARE FINAL SALE which I found extremely shady. Had I known that I would not have purchased them. That’s a move made by a company that does not back their product. It’s too bad because I did adore the company and think they are beautiful looking boots, I’m just not impressed anymore.

    Very warm and cozy!

    I have had these for around 2 weeks, so I think I can finally give a general review.

    These boots are so warm and comfortable! I have large calves (around 16") and can actually pull these on no problem - a very rare occurrence for me. I will say that if you're looking for a sturdy winter boot with ankle support, these are not for you. They are more like walking on slippers outside. So far, they are beautifully waterproof and are pretty grippy. I have slipped a couple of times but it's impossible to have a perfect boot in that regard.

    My only concern is how well they will wear... Like I said, I've been wearing them for around 2 weeks and I can see the toe starting to scuff. I'm not sure if I drag my toes a bit because I have a similar issue with my kayaks from Manitobah. But they're still perfectly functional and I think I'll be able to wear them for a few years.

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.

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.)

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.
