THE ART OF BOOT MAKING

Handcrafted in Canada from fine Italian leathers and suedes, every La Canadienne creation is nurtured from start to finish, delivering the highest quality product.




An intricate process comprised of over 100 steps that has been perfected over the last 70 years in our eco-friendly, Montreal based factory. Every boot is hand cut to ensure a quality fit and an unsurpassable level of comfort. We take tremendous pride in every item that we manufacture and deliver, continuously trying to improve our footwear to benefit our customers and adapt to their lifestyles.

Cutting

The leather is cut to ensure precision and minimal wastage.

Lasting

Once stitched it is pulled over a plastic mould in the shape of a foot. Lasts come in many styles and sizes which give the finished shoe a fashionable shape and look.
