Munro shoes are designed to provide you with comfort all day, for all occasions, and on all surfaces. Munro uses superior materials such as latex and polyurethane for outsoles, and super-soft leathers for shoe designs. Munro also offers over 75 combinations of sizes and widths so you will be sure to find a comfortable pair of shoes for your type of feet.

Munro shoes are American-made and are sold nationally. They were originally created in New Hampshire in 1950. Don Munro established the company after acquiring years of knowledge from working in the shoe-making business. Munro does not sell shoes directly to consumers. Their shoe collections are available through approved and qualified retail outlets, with the best deals often being found through e-tailers online. Some styles are always available, while others will not carry over into new seasons.

Design Characteristics of Munro Shoes

All Munro shoes are created on a last which is the plastic mold that determines how a shoe will fit your foot. The last also determines the shape of the toe, depth of the instep, and height of the heel for shoe constructions. With 45 years of experience, Munro has created a unique and special combination last for making shoes. The heel is narrower than the toe on every Munro shoe because of their specific last design.

The heel height is an important factor for Munro shoe collections. The height of the heel will influence the level of comfort provided by a shoe. Though flats are more comfortable for most customers, some will need a higher heel due to conditions such as plantar fasciitis or a contracted Achilles tendon. You can choose the appropriate height of heels for your feet by speaking to a fit professional for footwear.
