Throughout history, Canada’s First People wore mukluks and moccasins to protect their feet while at the same time keeping them light to survive the elements of nature. Today Manitobah, founded by siblings of Aboriginal and European descent, is keeping the tradition alive by creating authentic, handmade, and functional footwear. Not only is the Canada-based company connecting their past with the present but a large part of their mission is to revive the arts by way of business-building partnerships with Aboriginal artists and elders. For the past couple of months, Lauren and I have been practically living in our beyond comfortable, shearling and leather mukluks. So in celebration of our newfound obsession, we’re partnering with Manitobah to give away a pair of their Gatherer Mukluks to one lucky reader. Simply leave a comment below, follow Manitobah on Twitter or like them on Facebook, and a winner will be selected at random on Monday, February 13th. (Sorry, limited to US & Canada residents only. Color selection subject to availability. Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx ***Contest is now closed. Congratulations to Naomi S.!
