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.
