Welcome to Munro American!


We are a family owned and operated business.

Our founder, Don Munro, moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas in 1959 and established the original Lake Catherine Footwear, which was a division of a New Hampshire based shoe manufacturer. In 1972 Don purchased the Arkansas division and established Munro & Company, Inc.

Three of Don’s five-children are still in the business today, Bruce is CEO, Mollie is Executive Vice President, and Christine is Director of International Development. Don is still actively involved in the business though he also spends a great deal of time working on his many philanthropic interests.

Today the company operates three facilities in Arkansas: Lake Catherine and Clarksville for development and manufacturing, and the Fred Young Center for distribution and warehousing. Along with making shoes in Arkansas, we also source uppers and finished shoes from global partners.

Munro & Company, Inc., also imports and distributes Jumping Jacks Shoes, a size and width children’s shoe brand. The private label division of Munro & Company, Inc., currently designs and imports a men’s work boot program and will last and finish the Khombu Women’s US Ski Team après ski boot for Fall 2015.

Munro American is the premier line of sizes and width footwear for women in the United States and we only partner with those retailers who cater to the needs of their clientele.
