Montreal is the center of a unique culture, one that is both of the Americas and yet fundamentally French. As such everything it produces, both in the arts and in fashion, combines the energy of the New World with the artistry of the Old. This extends, of course, to the fine boots produced by La Canadienne footwear. Founded nearly a half century ago in francophone Montreal, their boots are designed to keep women warm, dry, and safe in even the harsh, inclement weather of the far north. They’re also, however, always crafted with elegance and beauty in mind.
Offering ankle as well as full length boots that are distinguished by both suede and leather uppers, La Canadienne is noted for the extreme comfort and protection they provide women in even the coldest and wettest climates. Though originally designed with the bitter arctic air that often sweeps through Quebec in mind, such footwear is also ideal for American cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, and Milwaukee, as even these fashionable metropolitan areas are routinely subjected to bitter cold spells and driving winds.
The average woman of means is also usually a woman with a fashion sense, however, and is not merely interested in keeping warm in late January. She also wants the world to see her for the beauty that’s carried in her demeanor and personality. It’s for this reason that La Canadienne boots are sculpted in a manner that is as flattering and fundamentally attractive as the women who choose to wear them.
Whether she’s only outside long enough to slip into a cab or the type who enjoys a graceful stroll downtown on white, snowy days, any woman who loves a fine, beautiful pair of boots should invest in a set of La Canadiennes.
