Welcome to Munro!

Munro is the premier women's line of size and width footwear in the U.S.


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. After decades of ownership Don’s five-children purchased Munro & Company, Inc. keeping the legacy alive. While three of the owners manage the daily operations of the company, Don is still actively involved in the business. 

Today the company operates two facilities in Arkansas; Clarksville Footwear for product development and manufacturing and The Fred Young Center in Hot Springs with our corporate offices, design, distribution and warehousing. Along with making shoes in Arkansas, we also source uppers and finished shoes from trusted global partners. 

Munro & Company, Inc. also is the U.S. distributor of the Spanish brand, HISPANITAS SHOES, a women's fashion shoe line made in Spain.



The Munro Family invites all who live in or visit Arkansas to stop by the Munro Factory Outlet Store [formerly Lake Catherine Family Footwear Outlet Store] located at 3770 Malvern Ave., Hot Springs, AR. Regular business hours are 9-5 Monday-Saturday. Winter hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday-Saturday.
