Manitoba Mukluk Love: The Story Boot Project
I love my mukluks, but not just any mukluks. I have a strong affinity for Manitobah Mukluks, made by aboriginal people in Canada. Ten years ago, I purchased my very first pair of mukluks at Nordstrom Rack for $79.95. That’s right, almost 90% off. The boots we’re originally priced at $500, but I struck gold and got the deal of a lifetime. These warm, stylish, beauties have been my savior during the harsh winters in New York City and Michigan. I’ve worn them in snow, rain, sun, and on occasion lounging around the house. They’ve held up for the past 10 years, perfectly!
In process of moving out of my old place, I lost the mate to my prize mukluks. I searched high and low and couldn’t find the mate. To say I was devastated was an understatement. In my disappointed state, I did a bit of research and found that I could replace them for $199. I was literally jumping up and down! I’m so excited! These boots are AWESOME and worth every penny! I would gladly pay to double to own another pair.
