The La Canadienne Way.

We are thrilled to introduce our documentary-style short film to drive awareness to our craftsmanship, knowledgeable team, and the manufacturing processes that make us unique.

Consciously Made for City Life

Consciously making timeless footwear, outerwear and accessories for all urban occasions from a unique perspective that considers the needs that city living cultivates.
Our products are handmade in Canada, Spain and Italy, with the highest quality materials.

Canadian to the Core

La Canadienne was born in 1987 in Montreal, a city that can experience all four seasons in a given day. But a true Montrealer isn’t phased by the weather. We embrace the elements with style, determined to live and enjoy without restraint, and our shoes are crafted with that in mind.

No Compromise

We believe you should never have to sacrifice style for practicality, or premium quality for affordability. We adopt a no-compromise approach to footwear, marrying classic and contemporary styles with unrivalled functionality so you can experience the freedom of embracing all-season city living.

Unrivalled Functionality

With us, you have the confidence to embrace all-season city living without restraint. Our City Dry™ footwear comes ready to weather the elements upon purchase - no further treatment required.

Timeless Design

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.

Made For Life In Motion

We craft shoes that move with you, all year. Timeless in style. Comfortable, whatever the distance. Durable no matter the forecasts.

Exceptional Craftsmanship

Our employees exude true craftsmanship. Their skills and dedication to the trade are found in each and every pair of shoes produced.

Unbeatable Quality

We work with local makers and international suppliers who share our ethics and values, and we choose materials that stand the test of time in order to minimize their impact on the planet.

Our Commitment

We take a systematic approach to our manufacturing process that considers the consumer, the community, and the planet.

Our focus on details extends to our keen awareness of the environmental impact of our products, and in order to minimize those impacts, we choose materials that stand the test of time, environmentally friendly dyes and protective agents, as well as recycled materials for our packaging.

We are proud to use the highest quality Italian hides available that are by-products of the food industry, which allows us to utilize materials that would otherwise have been discarded. We work with local makers and international suppliers who share our ethics and values.

We are committed to meeting and exceeding all environmental regulations, not just in our product but in our factory as well.

Our Montreal Facility

Our eco-friendly factory employs up to 100 skilled artisans at the peak of our footwear production. Every City Dry™ footwear is hand cut to ensure an unsurpassable level of comfort, in an intricate process comprised of over 100 steps, perfected over the last 35 years.

Quality control is an essential ingredient to the finished product. Skillful eyes inspect each skin prior to beginning production and every style made is inspected by hand before being packed. Great fit and consistent quality have become synonymous with La Canadienne.

We take tremendous pride in every item that we manufacture and deliver, continuously trying to improve our footwear to benefit our customers and adapt to their lifestyles.

Fair & Well Made

Our footwear is crafted using high quality leathers sourced in Italy. Handmade in Canada, Spain and Italy, with ethics and the environment in mind. The result is footwear that is as beautiful as it is well-made.

All employees are treated equally according to the high standards of North American labor laws. They enjoy an environmentally safe workplace that is dedicated to using non toxic materials as well as providing the most up to date manufacturing techniques. Offering a respected workplace for our employees is paramount to the success of our products.
