About Us

We exist to keep your feet happy

Happy feet deserve more; more choice, more service, more value. 

Over 67 years and three generations we’ve learnt what it takes to keep feet happy and comfortable. Our family began designing, manufacturing and working in the footwear industry in 1948, honing skills in fitting and crafting Canada’s most comfortable shoes. 

Shumaker was launched in 2015 bringing the best sourced and manufactured footwear into Canada directly. This direct-to-consumer approach keeps us value-conscious and gives us visibility on the shoe-making process, to deliver the best quality footwear to you, our customers.

Our history

A proudly Canadian family business, Shumaker opened its first brick and mortar retail location in  Peterborough, Ontario. Located on the upper level of Lansdowne Place Mall, our first Shumaker store wowed patrons with its modern design, bright interiors, and signature red and rose gold accents.

With increasing demand, we opened four additional locations in the same year spanning the Greater Toronto Area from east to west. Phase two of our expansion came only a few months later with two additional locations in the nation’s Capital and another on the 401 belt. Phase three naturally followed with further store openings in Ontario and the Shumaker family continues to expand across Canada to bring our customers the finest fitting shoes and the best service there is. 

Shumaker Ethos

Happy feet are our mission, but a thriving community also makes a big difference; for us success is worth sharing. Shumaker has already raised tens of thousands of dollars for hospitals, local charities, and organizations around our stores and in the communities that we are part of. 

Our promise to you

We would like to thank you sincerely for being our customer and becoming part of the Shumaker family. We promise to continue to search for and deliver the world’s best footwear to you in Canada.
