Mukluks or Kamik are a soft boot traditionally made of reindeer
skin or sealskin and were originally worn by Arctic aboriginal people, 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. In the Inuipiaq language the "u" makes an "oo" sound, and so the
spelling "maklak" is used with the same pronunciation.
Don't worry about how they look. Just make sure you
are keeping your feet warm.
Mukluks weigh little and allow hunters to move very quietly.
They may be adorned with pompons and beads and may be lined with furs such as rabbit,
fox and raccoon. The design of the mukluk is used for the industrial manufacture
of cold-weather boots, especially paired with a rugged contemporary sole. The key
component of its success is its ability to breathe, that is, to allow air exchange.
This is an advantage in extremely cold conditions where perspiration may become
a factor in frostbite on one's feet. The bulkiness paired with their poor performance
in slush makes them less ideal for the casual winter wearer.
