I can’t wait to tell you about! I was introduced to Chaco’s about a decade ago when I was going to live abroad for a couple years. My co-workers and family members insisted I buy a pair for my trip and swore they would come in hand. They weren’t my style at the time, but I decided to give them a try. They are one of the most utilized and cherished shoes in my closet, mostly because they are sturdy, dependable and versatile. I wear them on walks around the neighborhood, on outdoor hikes and love them for city walking too. What I love about them is that I can walk in them all day and feel supported and comfortable. In the past when I’ve tried to wear a different pair of shoes all day, I end up with sore, throbbing legs. Lucky for us, the custom pair of Chaco’s are made  in the USA – the other styles are not. Order your custom pair online – you pick the color of the sole, the pattern and style of the straps, and even other same details including the color of the stitching. Chaco is making the custom pairs to celebrate its 25th anniversary and each pair is made in Rockland, Michigan.

The Sbicca Brand was originally founded by the Sbicca family in their home in Philadelphia.  The family began producing footwear in the USA in 1920 and moved their thriving business to California following World War II. The company still makes some of its footwear in the USA. If you’re looking for cute sandals, try these Sbicca Arroyo Wedge Sandals.

  1. Gurkee’s Rope Sandals are 100-percent Made In the USA! The owner moved the manufacturing from Mexico to West Virginia a couple of years ago. Made of the same yarn that goes into carpet, Gurkee’s Rope Sandals are so lightweight wearing them is like going barefoot. They’re machine-washable and available in six styles and many colors.

    • I need an arch support in my flip flops, like the Sketchers ones. Can I find anything like that American made???

      • [above] OLA sandals are super comfortable flip flops, with arch support, made in California. They are lightweight and flexible, made from PolyEcoPro. You can even send in your old flip flops to be recycled. Check out the fun and fresh colors they offer.

        Not only are these flip flops great, the company donates 5% of all profits from OLA towards Heel The Bay to help preserve our ocean, rivers and the ecosystem.

      • I’m with Molly B – I have plantar fasciitis and super-high arches so I can only wear high arch support…was wearing Moszkito until they (apparently) went out of business, have switched to Vionics Orthaheel but I would LOVE to wear USA-made!

      • Chaco has a line of sandals and flipflops that are made in the USA–and made to order! Fantastic arch support!

  2. I love that they are made in the USA – I especially think the Sbicca are cute!

  4. Robin Wilson says:

    I had no idea that we imported that much of our shoe inventory! Because my feet are pretty deformed due to arthritis and lupus, it can be very hard for me to find shoes that fit, period. I have to wear a closed toe sandal, no heel, which makes it close to impossible to find shoes that fit, that I can also afford. But I will check into these companies that you listed and keep my fingers crossed.

  5. We do as well sandals,from genuine leather,made here in Miami,Florida,U.S.A. Reach us at

  6. David Froment says:

    Scandic Footwear Clogs, perhaps the best clogs in the world, are made in New Hampshire.

    I am a big sandal wearer so thanks for this review. Great companies featured.

  10. Linda Lopez says:

    Don’t forget SAS in San Antonio, Texas. Great styles and really comfortable shoes. Most of their styles are made in the USA, and those that are not are made in Italy, where they have another factory.

  11. Informative read, the Okabashi flip flops look great!

  12. I had no idea that Zappos let user search specifically for products made in the US – that’s fantastic!

  13. Tamra Phelps says:

    My niece just lives in flip flops, lol. I got her a pair of the Telics & she really likes them. She also has some Oofos; are they American made? I thought they were.

  14. I buy often at Zappos ….it’s very nice to have a filter for American made shoes. Thanks!

  15. vickie couturier says:

    i love the look of these,they look so comfortable

  16. Our company, Tidal New York, manufactures flip flops out of our factory in New Rochelle, NY. We mold them out of soft, durable polyurethane rather than sheet-cutting out of EVA, like most. They also feature some arch support!

  17. V Lapierre says:

    I am a sandal wearer and would wear round if I could. I am glad to know that there is a company out that sells American made products…that purchasing and wearing them would make me feel all the more proud when wearing them.

  18. Tamra Phelps says:

    I got Telic Sandals for my niece & she really likes them. Flip Flops are are Summer staple in footwear, lol.
