Camper History

Camper is known for its flexible, durable, lightweight shoes using state-of-the-art manufacturing methods including 360 degree stitching and goodyearwelt construction. This follows its valued and commitment to the shoes involving four generations of family.

Although Camper was not founded until 1975, you have to travel back 130 years to discover the origins of this remarkable brand. A talented cobbler named Antonio Fluxa sailed to England in 1877 to explore new methods of industrial manufacturing. On his adventure back he gathered the best craftsmen from Inca and introduced them to the pioneering shoe manufacturing machines.
