The “Memento” boot ($279) brings together the rich artistic heritage of the First Nations people with the cold-weather technology Burton has honed over the past 35 years.

Fashion – Modern-day mukluks

These boots are based on mukluks designed by the late Annie Madeleine McKay of the Misipawistik Cree Nation

In one of the coolest (and unexpected) fashion collaborations of the year, Burton Snowboards has partnered up with Aboriginal-owed Manitobah Mukluks to design a limited-edition snowboarding boot for their winter 2014 line.

The “Memento” boot ($279) brings together the rich artistic heritage of the First Nations people with the cold-weather technology Burton has honed over the past 35 years. Based on mukluks designed by the late Annie Madeleine McKay of the Misipawistik Cree Nation, there’s no doubt these snowboarding stompers will turn heads on the slopes this season.
