Mukluks or Kamik (singular: kamak) are a soft boot traditionally made of reindeer skin or sealskin and were originally worn by Arctic natives, including the Inuit and Yupik. The term mukluk is often used for any soft boot designed for cold weather and modern designs are often similar to high-top athletic shoes. The word "mukluk" is of Yupik origin, from maklak, the Bearded Seal, while "kamik" is an Inuit word. The Canadian Forces Arctic Mukluks W/Wool Liner has evolved into a extreme cold weather boot system that involves a layered apporach featuring a wool "Bootie" interior with a canvas/rubber outer shell. Whether it is utility or fashion,Mukluks will deliver performance with style.

Comments about Canadian Forces Arctic Mukluks W/Liner:

I initially purchased a pair of these new and they lasted 22 years with regular use throughout Canada's high rctic and winter use in southern Canada. We used to hunt in the Arctic, coldest night was 35 below C and out for days, it would be the only boot that I would be confortable to depend on. While it is true that in conditions that are water/wet they will get wet, I would have to say if your in that kind of weather to use insulated rubber boots instead. Generally, this boot is suitable for all winter weather, deep snow, mild to extreme cold conditions. Liners are soft and confortable, and after finally running my first pair into the ground after in excess of 22 years, I just purchased another pair and look forward to years more use when the boot is called for.

Comments about Canadian Forces Arctic Mukluks W/Liner:

I've had a pair of these boots for years and have used them many, many times while working and travelling in the Arctic. I've since substituted the existing liners with new Baffin Boot liners. I find these mukluks breathe better than Sorrels or Baffins with the rubber lowers. These boots are meant only for extreme cold, and they work great! In warmer weather, when the snow begins to melt they will get wet quickly, this is where the Baffins and Sorrels excel. I like that I can lace the boots snug on my foot because of the softer outer. It's worth the money...
