Munro American: Specializing in hard to fit feet

Hard to fit feet

Munro American makes shoes for hard to fit feet

Munro manufactures shoes in its home state of Arkansas.

The number of shoes I own is small, both by choice and by chance. By choice, because I believe in buying high quality shoes and having fewer pairs. By chance, because I happen to have been born with a horribly narrow foot. Really, it’s the reason I used to cry when my mother took me shoe shopping.

Which is why I love Munro American. Their tagline says “We make shoes for the forgotten feet.” And they do. Not just narrows, but slims!!! And wides, too! In fact, they have five different widths: superslim, narrow, medium, wide, and wide wide. Women have options whether they have carefree or hard to fit feet.

And they manufacture in the U.S. Only a handful of shoe companies still do that.

Personal appearance

I was thrilled when Munro visited my hometown recently for a trunk show, or what the company calls a “personal appearance.”

It was awesome to have so many of their shoes to try on all in one place. And to meet other Munro fans. During my visit, half the 20 or so women I saw walked in wearing Munro’s most popular shoe, the Abby, which I bought last year. I bought the Kirsten (see photo) because I needed a neutral shoe for summer.

For the hard to fit feet, Munro American shoe, the Kirsten

My newest Munro American shoe, the Kirsten

I’ve worn these peep-toe platform slingbacks for a month now and they are extremely comfortable. As regular readers know, I’m pretty klutzy and I’ve nearly turned my ankle once or twice because they’re higher than I usually wear, but I’m working on becoming more graceful. I would estimate the Kirsten is my 7th or 8th pair of Munro shoes, and every single one has lasted several years and fit great.

Munro American are available on their own website as well as a host of online retailers like Zappos. Many bricks and mortars stores like Nordstrom carry them as well. Shoes range from $118 to $228; boots go up to $278.

There are other flashier, more fashion-forward brands out there. But if you want attractive shoes you can wear every day and be comfortable, Munro might just be your go-to shoe.
