Shoemaking in Kumanovo has a long and rich tradition dating from the 19th century. Surfacing as one of the characteristic trades in this part of the world, shoemaking represents an important economic branch in Kumanovo today.

The "Chik" Factory, also known as "the Balkans' university of shoemaking", generating skilled workers and creative personnel, was at the same time a synonym for quality shoes. It was those people that continued the successful tradition of shoemaking after the factory closed. Thanks to their knowledge, persistance and creativity, today there are a number of private companies in this particular trade, making shoemaking in Kumanovo boom once again.
