Reconnect, Restore, Revitalize
Leather is a product of nature that will not disrupt the earthing connection. Traditional moccasins made with real animal hides, like those crafted by Laurentian Chief, are a way to restore our relationship with the earth.
As Canadian As It Gets
Handcrafted with responsibly sourced, high quality hides, and traditional artisanship and design, these house shoes are a quite a step up above average.
The Right Gear
As cold weather approaches, protect yourself and your shoes from the elements with a must- have pair of durable, weatherproof Villager Overshoes by NEOS.
The Hygge Life
When the days get shorter and temperatures drop, you embrace your comforts and plan for cold-weather cheer. In that heartwarming spirit of hygge, sheepskin boots are cozy and beautiful - inside and out. It’s not just a word, it’s a lifestyle.
In Step with Nature
Walking in all-leather moccasins enables the Earth’s energy to be naturally absorbed through the feet without the obstruction of synthetic outsoles. Earthing in Bastien’s moose hide fringed moccasins is just a step away, and can be ordered online from our Healthy & Grounded website for quick and convenient delivery.
Cold Feet, Warm Heart
The sheepskin foot warmer is luxuriously plush and cozy, with adjustable velcro straps and lots of room to slide your feet in and out... perfect for relaxing on the couch or even sitting at a desk while you work.
The Legend of Hiawatha
Authentic moccasins bring to mind an ancient heritage rich with stories like that of Hiawatha’s. Wearing something crafted with care by skilled Indigenous artisans is a privilege and a joy.
Slipper Season
MerinoMood bootie slippers come in two very different colours, whatever your mood or style preference, and I can’t tell which one I like best! There’s neutral beige to keep things cool and classic, but also a rich, shadowy violet for those who prefer a darker shade. Sassy pom-pom laces complete this cute and cozy look.
Zip It
The EMF Protection Hoodie is a convenient and trendy option for limiting EMF exposure. Lightweight, comfortable, and made with genuine silver fibres, it can be worn over regular clothing to shield against harmful radiation frequencies.
Slippers With Great Personality
I have to admit, I had a little giggle when I first saw these slippers in all their fluffy glory. Then I tried them on. And I understood: they may not be the trendiest or prettiest ones in the world, but they do have great personality! I could definitely see myself spending quality time with these plushy slides.
Sleep It Off
Unlike some grounding pads that are used under a sheet, this mattress pad is meant to be slept on. As with all grounded surfaces, it works best when in direct contact with your skin, so go as bare as you dare! Its velvety plush comfort will keep you cozy all night long, while you enjoy a deep and restful grounded sleep.
Hats Off to Brown Bear!
The new Brown Bear merchandise celebrates a Canadian-based, family-owned and operated business that has stood the test of time for 50 years. Wear it proudly!

Our lives changed a lot when we decided to switch to life in the country. Chores and outdoor work levelled up, and so did our gear. This transition was made so much easier by having Muck® boots that meet our needs, in every condition, rain or shine.
Moccasins At Home
The superior quality and design of these genuine cowhide suede moccasins is characterized by traditional detailing: Indigenous-inspired braided trim, with rows of fringe across the vamp, and around the heel, and finished off with rawhide laces.
