The Kamik Story
A Walk In Our Shoes
We have over 100 years of manufacturing history and it all started with a man named William Cook. In 1932, William purchased a company called Charron Manufacturing (est. 1898). And in the midst of the Great Depression, he took a gamble and completely overhauled the company to focus on performance footwear. In doing so, he saved 200 jobs and built the foundation for the company that he later renamed Genfoot, now the Canadian, family-run parent company of Kamik.
To this day, our company is still family owned and operated.
