Rich in Chicago, an avid collector of native-made snowshoes, wanted mukluks for snowshoeing. This pair is made of brain-tanned and smoked moosehide prepared by a Dene lady in northern Saskatchewan. They have canvas tops with braid and double soles. Here's what Rich says about his mukluks.

I finally got around to making myself a pair of snowshoe mukluks and I really can't tell you how nice they are to snowshoe in. They have brain-tanned smoked moosehide bottoms, canvas tops, thick duffle liners, felt insoles, braid for decoration and wool ties. I tend to get cold feet outside but these mukluks are so warm and comfy they feel like clouds on my feet. Wearing them outside in the snow feels like I am barefoot because they are so light and have soft soles. At the same time my feet are cozy and warm. I also wear them inside the house too. Because they are made of natural breathable materials they are not too warm even inside the house. You can see a picture of me snowshoeing on a cold day.

I traded these mukluks with Dot in Ottawa for one of her beautiful decorated paddles. She plans to wear them for winter camping. They are made of moose and deerhide and are trimmed with braid. They have Sorel felt liners and extra duffle liners on the foot.
