A made-in-North America family tradition
At Kamik, we're not just about respecting your feet.
We also respect our neighbours. Our parent company, Genfoot, is a proudly Canadian, family-run company, and we’ve been manufacturing shoes in North America for 100 years. When you’re around that long, you’d better be a good neighbour.
