I cannot imagine how many woods miles or snowshoeing miles I have in them. These mukluks are tough."
I love my Mukluks. I am living now in Germany. My friends give me a hard time because they think I paid too much for my boots. they are all in Uggs....Who's tooties are freezing? Not mine...and I do not even have to wear socks. I stand by my Mukluks.....100%
BIG fan of your products – I think I own every pair of the arctic boots, and about 6 pairs of mocs/regular boots, 2 sets of the mitts – use them religiously, and now I’ve told my ice fishing partner he is no longer allowed to borrow any of them, so he’ll be placing an order soon too.

Your muks keep my toes nice and cozy on each and every one of my expeditions!
Thank you for the fabulous Tracker Moccasins you gave me on the 4th of July! It was such an unexpected surprise, you truly made my day. I have a pair of mukluks that I have owned for 9 years and I love them, I work at a school and they are the only boots that keep my feet warm during recess. I can hardly wait to wear my new moccasins (maybe when the weather cools off a bit). Thank you so much!
We are Ely fans ... the entire family! My husband and I fell in love years ago after a winter camping trip with Wintergreen. This year, our kids were old enough to dog sled and so over Christmas break we headed to Ely. I often live-stream WELY when I am need of a good "Ely Fix" ... sometimes it's the menus I need to hear, sometimes the things for sale, often the great music!
Well, this year as WELY broadcast all the great things going on, my Ely-homesickness could take no more. I booked us at Grand Ely Lodge and booked other wonderful excursions during our stay. We all felt we were "home".
My 9 year old daughter, Margaret Ann really fell hard for Ely. The cross country skiing, dog sledding and Wolf Center grabbed her heart and has not let go. So much so that when her art teacher proposed a "Snow globe" project to have the kids illustrate a snow globe of where they would want to be this winter, she was the only one heading north!
So, you see her favorites ... Zup's (she ate beef jerky all the way home and loved the potato sausage we brought home as well), Steger Mukluks (I was surprised with a pair by my husband) and the Chocolate Moose (which satisfied her picky palate). Then the wolf howling in the background (we caught a feeding time and it was so cool!)!
Thanks to the town for a really incredible vacation! We could be your ambassadors for sure! There are other businesses and people who really made our vacation memorable and so special but the globe was only so big!
You have a special way of sharing your fair city!!

I love to wear baggy Levi's, paired with a vintage Wrangler jacket in a lichter denim and my beloved Navajo blanket Steger mukluks. Even when it's not so very cold (I live in The Netherlands)...they look really cool (everybody agrees ;-) - x Pret À Pitu
Al and I could be billionaires if we were given $1 for every person we told about Mukluks and how awesome they are. Honestly! I had the worst case of frozen toes until I purchased my Mukluks 8 winters ago. I'll never wear another winter boot again. We live in the Arctic (Wisconsin) where temps have dipped down in the -20°'s this winter and these little slippers, I mean boots, are the best! So when we got an email about Steger Mukluk's having a photo contest we figured we'd better enter. We jumped in the truck and drove out on the lake, snapped a couple photos and entered! (Steger note: see photo gallery for results)
I just wanted to say thank you for my fabulous Arctic Mukluks! I live in Norway, so they've seen some action, but just recently took them on a week-long camping expedition to northern Sweden! The temperature dropped to -30° C overnight, but never once did my toes feel the cold! I had planned on having to wear 2 pairs of socks, but never needed more than one! They were so light and comfortable, it felt like I was wearing nothing at all!
Often I'll forget to take them off when I get to work and I get many compliments of them. Ely quality! Even our group leader on the Sweden trip recognized my "Stegers".
I look forward to wearing them for many years! And maybe getting another pair or two. :)

Hi - I have had the same pair of Steger Mukluks since 1999, and they have even been with me on an expedition across the icecap of Greenland. They still look great!
I l.o.v.e. my mukluks. Makes winter so much more enjoyable
I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with my Steger Mukluks! I own a pair of traditional Black Mukluks. Our temperatures in Utah don't usually get down into the negatives, but this year is different. Your mukluks keep my toes so warm. I wish everyone had them! Thanks for your wonderful product! Do you make gloves as well with the same awesomeness?
answer - yes we do "Arcitc Mitts" & thank you for asking.
I love my Kodiak style Steger Mukluks and how they keep my feet toasty warm in the coldest winter temps (you know how cold it gets here in Minnesota!!). I also own a pair of the Tracker Moccasins. Steger Mukluks are the best! All are locally made here in Ely, Minnesota. Check out their newest item; the CamuksXtreme Camouflage Mukluks - the best waterproof hunting and ice fishing boots in the world
The "Ely, Minnesnowta" look....for Jeanmarie....the Steger Mukluks are the warmest ever....I have had one pair for over 10 years and was fortunate that Dick forgot I already had one pair and ordered me another for my birthday a couple of years ago.... here they are.... and the jacket is from Wintergreen in Ely, MN....also lasts a lifetime and keeps one very toasty!
"So warm and wonderful! I wear them every day. Thanks for keeping my Alaskan toes toasty! They're the best boots I've had".
says "still the best muck on the market!!!! I wear mine all year with out socks mostly"
"Love your mukluks. Nothing warmer, comfy & good on Alaskan ice than these. I never slipped & fell. -25 no socks no problem...I own two pair now. My 1st pair I wore for a decade & then my husband wore them for another 5 yrs with patches & all. Folks are always complimenting my black fringe style ones & ask where I got them. I tell Them 1-800-mukluks. So, a lifetime fan thank you dearly for making my life more comfy:)"
"I have worn Steger Mukluks on all of my Polar and Arctic expeditions for the last 25 years. My survival is dependent on footwear that I can count on to keep my feet warm and comfortable. Steger Mukluks are a must for your feet in cold weather." Will Steger
THE Steger Mukluks. Not only do they look chic but they are seriously the warmest boots you’ll ever own. (Mike and his boys wear them every year winter camping in February along the border of Minnesota and Canada.) Mukluks paired with my Sweaty Betty Nordic base layers and I’ve got Mikey blushing and smiling from ear to ear. Mmmm…

Patti Steger & all those @ Steger Mukluks,
I just wanted to send my thanks for the free pair of mukluks I received at Applefest!! My boyfriend & I decided to give the pair of mukluks I received to my mother for Christmas. She never buys anything for herself, let alone something as nice as mukluks!:) That was very generous of you to give a pair to us. I am from Bayfield, WI, grew up there and am currently attending the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire. My parents got a pair of mukluks for me when I was in 7th grade for my birthday & Christmas present. They still fit & wear them to this day. I wear them as much as I can, everyday walking to class in the snow, deer hunting & dog sledding. When people ask about my boots, I always refer them to Steger Mukluks. They are amazed at how long I’ve had them & how good a shape they are in. I am a guide once in a while for a dogsledding company and they have mukluks they lend out to their customers & they love them! You guys have a great company, great people & a great product. I will continue to recommend your mukluks!

“I have a pair of Apache moccasins and a pair of tall black expedition muks that I bought in 1988. They have been with me and in use as I've lived in Alaska, Wyoming, Death Valley, and in Ely. I left Ely in 1991 to WA state, and other than refurbushing the soles of the moccasins, and changing the liners of the mukluks, I still use both today. Thanks to Patti and everyone in Ely. I plan on buying another pair of Apache's in the near future.”

Dear Steger Mukluks Co.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to receive a pair of your mukluks at the Applefest Parade. My husband embarrassed me by going out in the parade to see if your van had any boots I could try on. I tried to pull him back, but he wanted to be generous to me. I wouldn’t have let him buy me them because I would have said the kids needed winter stuff before me. However, your company chose to bless my husband with the free boots. Well then I probably embarrassed my husband by screaming, jumping up & down and kissing him. It made our day, our week and will be one of the highlights of our year!
I received the boots yesterday. I picked “Terra” and they are beautiful. My two best friends who were at the parade already own your mukluks, so we can now form a mukluk club. The purpose will be to show off our boots...oh and probably go out to lunch.
Bless you for blessing me! I will tell everyone I see.
Received from Karen, by hand written letter. Thank You Karen.
2012 I have three awesome pairs of your Mukluks, they are so warm & couldn't imagine winter without them. Thanks Steger Mukluks. Lori Leaney
