History of Finn Comfort Shoes
Finn Comfort shoes was founded in 1945, in Hassfurt, Germany a beautiful little village in the state of Bavaria. The company was started by the Kanner family, and they still run Finn Comfort to this day. In fact, Finn Comfort shoes are still produced in Hassfurt almost 60 years after they rolled out their first pair.
Finn Comfort shoes began their march towards becoming a global brand in the mid ’80s. During this time,
the Kanner family started importing their hand made shoes to Canada. They quickly developed a cult following, convincing the Kanners that they had done the right thing. But they weren’t finished expanding.
Soon, Finn Comfort shoes were available in the United States and other countries as well. Currently, the company has distribution facilities in Montreal, Canada, and Thousand Oaks, California. The shoes are now sold in 35 countries around the globe. Their production levels have exceeded one million pairs of shoes every year.
