Karrimor Running Shoes

Karrimor was originally founded in the United Kingdom in 1946 by Charles Parsons, Mary Parsons and Grace Davies as a manufacturer of cycle bags. The family owned and operated company grew to include a full range of outdoor sports equipment, including footwear. Financial difficulties in the mid- to late-1990's due to acquisitions and differences of opinion over direction led external investors to force the family out by the late 1990's. The brand transformed from being a manufacturer into a 'fashion' brand. The company went into receivership in 2004 and was acquired by the publicly traded company, Sports Direct International (who also own the Everlast, Dunlop and Slazenger brands). Sports Direct now sell products, mostly made in China, under the Karrimor brand.

According to the number of search engine searches for this brand, the shoes seem to be popular. The running shoe models from Karrimor are: D30 Elite | D30 Excel | D30 Run | Duma | Pace | Pace Dual | Tempo Dual. They seem to be widely available online as retailers like Amazon.co.uk.
