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.

There are 3 of Don’s 5 children still in the business today, Bruce, who is CEO, Mollie, who is Executive Vice President, and Christine, who is the Director of the International Division. 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 Arkansas facilities: Lake Catherine and Clarksville for development and manufacturing, and the Fred Young Center for distribution and warehousing. It also sources some of it's uppers in the Domincan Republic, which are lasted and finished in the Clarksville facility. 

We are the exclusive manufacturer of the Munro American line of women’s professional comfort footwear. We also import and distribute Jumping-Jacks children’s shoes and a line of men’s safety-toe work boots.

The Munro American brand represents the premier line of women’s footwear in the marketplace that is dedicated to sizes and widths and comfort.
