A story of passion

AUCLAIR ET MARTINEAU is founded in Saint-Emile, between Quebec City and the Huron Native Indian Reserve, by misters Henri Auclair and Jules Martineau. From its beginning, the factory specializes in the manufacture of slippers and traditional mocassins. Back then, they craft shoes the same way their ancestors have ben making for centuries. The selected leather is carefully assembled by hand to ensure high quality products. It is with the same delicate approach we still work on shoes today

The company will experience a significant growth in the early 80's, reaching to a production of a million pairs per year. In 1995, Xavier Leclercq takes over the entreprise and develop a new market: Winter boots adapted to Quebec's harsh weather. His son, Jonathan Leclercq -today's actual owner- steps in in 1997 and decides to export the famous products to Japan, China, South Korea and Europe.

In 2012, a first flagship store opens in Quebec's Petit Champlain village. This boutique becomes a small laboratory and allows us to connect with customers. It is also through the store that our iconic Banff boot is popularized and gives a new, younger face to the company. This instant success leads to the first online shop platform, Amimoc.ca.

Today, AMIMOC is still known worldwide for its traditional mocs but also for its trusted Winter boot collection and its exclusive, original designs.

Always on the move

More than 60 years after its foundation, AMIMOC is still located in its same factory in Quebec, hiring about 90 persons who create, craft and distribute genuine leather mocs, boots and accessories worldwide. Today, MARTINO is well knowned as one of the top trusted shoemakers in Canada..

Since 2017, a new Teseo machine helps the cutting department to assure we can provide to the growing demand. Automatisation allows more precision and reduces material loss. We are proud to give our valued team tools and training to improve their work.​

In 2019, over 350 pair of shoes are made every day. Each step of the process is important and linked to another. We can say that every shoe becomes, in a way, a piece of art that reflects the good work of our loyal team.​

CUTTING It may seems hard to believe but, not so long ago, each piece of each style in each size was cut by hand with die-casts. We still use some of them these days for some specific styles but we can now rely on the help of Teseo, a high-hand technology machine, to cut leather precisely.

STITCHING Every day, about 40 employees work on stitching every single piece of the boot together, inside and out.

SOLDE GLUE This is the most critical step of making a good pair of shoes. The glue is applied to the sole and then heated. The oven high temperature varies depending on the solde composition.​

FINISHING Clean, shine and protect! Every boot is carefully inspected by our team before being put in our inventory or directly sent home to you.
