Welcome to Munro!

We are a family owned and operated business.

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

Our founder, Don Munro (1927-2022), 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. Three of the owners manage the daily operations of the company; Bruce Munro, CEO, Mollie Munro, COO, and Christine Munro, V.P. & Director of Sales.

Today the company operates two facilities in Arkansas; Clarksville Footwear for product development and manufacturing, along with The Fred Young Center in Hot Springs home of our corporate office and distribution center. In addition to making shoes in Arkansas, we also source uppers and finished shoes from trusted global partners.

Don Munro, the founder of Munro & Company.

The loss of Don Munro is felt by many. He was loved, admired, and greatly respected by all of us that knew him. He greeted all of his employees by name every time he walked through the (8) factories, distribution center, and office. He was truly remarkable and will be greatly missed.
