    • Please elaborate which styles are made in the US. Redwing DOES NOT make all of its models in the US. MY women’s composite toe are now made in China. I was embarrassed I posted this without reading first and it was pointed out. Thanks for your efforts, lets go the extra effort.

  2. New Balance needs to be removed from the list. They have “Made In Vietnam”. At least the last two pairs I bought were.

    • I wholeheartedly agree. Last visit to NB store turned up Vietnam, Indonesia, and China on inside. Gluing two pieces manufactured in two different foreign countries is NOT Made In America.

      • probably the reason they fall apart a lot faster these days. good for them, they got to keep the price high while finding the extra savings at the expense of a consumer…

    • Totally agree. Just bought a pair yesterday and found when I got home they were made in China.

    • NB has one or two lines made in America. You have to read the labels, because the others are still made elsewhere.

      • Exactly on the New Balance–check to see if US made or not. Wolverine, Red Wing, and a bunch more of the above have lines made overseas. New Balance is still aces with me. They are the ONLY quality athletic shoe that still has ANYTHING made in the US. Check the websites–they will usually have a MADE IN USA filter.

  3. You need to mention that not all styles of Wolverine Boots are made in the US. I recently bought a pair and was angry to find out that they were made in China.

  4. soft Star is a great shoe maker here in Corvallas,OR

  5. P. W. Minor Shoes, made in upstate New York since 1867.

    150 years and four generations later, the Minor family remains true to this commitment. Still crafting shoes in their factory in Batavia, New York. Still engineering and building comfort and precision fit into every pair.

  6. You forgot to put Lowa. Made in Slovakia.

  7. The last three pairs of frye i purchased were made in china!!! Contacted frye and they were evasive about it. I don’t care, frye, if you call it “put together in china” it’s the same thing as made in china which is what the stamp says. No way in hell should you charge hundreds of dollars for shoes made in China pretending that your shoes are US made! The way they get around it: “Oh, we use factories in Mexico, China and USA.” Frye had gone cheap and became nothing but an advertising ploy.

  8. New Balance currently still makes a couple of their shoes in Boston: the 990 being one of them. US consumer buying habits have caused these companies to manufacture oversees. If you see a company manufacturing in the US, then support their efforts. Every product has to show where it’s made. If it’s not made here, don’t buy it. As Americans, we’ve become addicted to cheap crap.

  9. Chippeawa makes great boots In USA so does Danner

  10. Sebago sent out a release saying that they are bringing a line or two back to the US. Also, Sperry Topsider has a VERY small US production of original topsiders. They are about 5 times the price of the Chinese stuff. (Levi Strauss also has the same thing with a small US production of jeans, that cost $$$)

  11. Jeff Bolton says:

    Danner boots of portland oregon while not all of thier line is made in usa as much is as red wing

  12. Great information. I love all the posts, I really enjoyed, I would like more information about this, because it is very nice, Thanks for sharing. I like the site best. Women’s Hiking shoes

  13. Thanks for writing this article! I just started working at Cove Shoe factory in Pennsylvania. A few of the brands on this list are made there: Frye, Carolina, and Walkover – but we make a whole lot more. Increasingly more shoe companies are running a “made in the USA” line, so keep buying USA made! It’s working. :)
