Finn Comfort Why Handcrafted?

An Intelligently Designed Masterpiece of German Quality


A perfect blend of skillful old world European craftsmanship, medical know-how and state-of-the-art modern technology give Finn Comfort shoes their unparalleled quality, trademark support and world-class comfort. Every pair of Finn Comfort shoes is a testament to their love of detail and steadfast refusal to compromise on the high quality of materials.

Because there is no substitute for the time-honored tradition of exquisite handwork, as many as 150 expertly trained craftsmen meticulously work on the completion of a single pair. Finn Comfort shoes are still handcrafted in the original factory, founded in 1945, located in the bucolic village of Hassfurt in the German state of Bavaria.

In their quest for perfect footwear, The Kanner family began importing these handcrafted treasures into Canada in the mid 1980's. What began with a small cult following flourished into a successful business with North American headquarters and distribution facilities in Montreal, Quebec and Thousand Oaks, California. Today, over 1 million pairs are produced each year and sold in over 35 countries worldwide.
