Listing of Shoes Made in USA

Shoes have been made in the United States with great fervor for a couple of centuries until about the 1980’s with the start of outsourcing. This was followed by an avalanche of shoe manufacturers fleeing the United States in the 90’s and 2000’s until very few companies remained. And This is where we are today. There are a few diehards that have remained and some boot makers. Today, the choices of shoes are not as good as it should be. Choices are few. For instance, in athletic wear, there is only one maker in the USA – New Balance and that is it. For Dress shoes for men, there is Allen Edmonds, Alden, Walk Over and Neil M, are rarely Brooks Brothers. For women, the choices are even smaller. The best bets are going to Nordstrom’s web page and type in “shoes made in USA” and your choices will come up with Athena, Callisto, Dezario, Munro and Sbicca. But there is a new brand I had not seen before, Cordani. And Keen has brought back a limited amount of boot making, see their Keen Nopo Boot. As far as shopping for shoes, I do not like to buy at full retail price, so, always keep you eye out for sales. Allen Edmonds often has sales on selected models as does Nordstroms (maybe you will get lucky and find something at Nordstroms Rack). So, happy shoe shopping. I hope the future of shoes being made in the USA will be very bright.

    I have 2 pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. The first pair was made in 1993 in USA. They have held up well for 20 years!!! I bought my second pair in the fall of 2013. Made In China of course. The sole started to rip from the “canvas” after THREE days! On inspection I found that the new ones are not made of canvas but some type of thick cotton. The stitching on the shoes does not match the Made In USA version of the shoes. The canvas ones have definitely held up better and feel thicker. I emailed Converse about it and was told they make them overseas to keep prices down yet a pair of Chucks retails for around $55. Not cheap if you ask me. They weren’t worth 10 bucks.

      I totally agree with your point. I think it is a travesty when they bring back a brand or the name of a company, when the product is nothing like the original in quality: material and workmanship. One exception, the New Balance 993 running shoes, famous in the 1980s, it is of great quality, made in the USA, and actually improved with its insert compared to the original. -Jack A.
