Consciously made for city life

We set out to make shoes from a different perspective, conscious of the needs city living cultivates. We adopt a no-compromise approach to footwear that marries design, function and ethics.

Montreal born.

Canadian to the core.

La Canadienne was born in Montreal in 1987. Montreal can experience all four seasons in a given day. Our shoes are made with these sensibilities in mind, it's what makes us truly Canadian.

La Canadienne Montreal

Timeless footwear for all urban occasions

Since the very beginning we are driven by the desire to empower women. No matter the season women should never have to sacrifice comfort over style. Fall, winter, spring and summer we believe every season presents a new occasion for women to dress and feel their best.

City Dry™ Technology

Our footwear is sought after for their legendary waterproofing. A unique process that repels water from the surface. Coupled with breathable materials, our shoes are designed to keep feet dry and warm.

Made for city life, whatever your city life

We dash from work meeting to bistro brunching. From 9 to 5 & 5 to 9. And we do it all in rain, shine, slush and sleet. That's what makes our footwear Canadian to the core and Montreal born.

Our Canadian sensibilities are stitched into all we do, as our collections are designed to keep up with all-season city living: polished for any occasion. Breathable from morning to night. City Dry™ for wet days and insulated for cold ones. We craft shoes without compromise that move with you, all year.
