Our readers asked, so we did the research and compiled this list of made in the USA Men’s boots!

Please remember, not all of the boots/shoes manufactured by most of the companies in this list are American made. We tried to link to the ones that are, but read the descriptions carefully. Also, some of the companies assemble some of their boots in the USA. As always, we support any effort a company makes to keep jobs here in the USA and try to give our readers as much information as possible.

If you are looking for women’s boots, most of the companies listed below also offer women’s sizes. Also check our lists of mens’ dress shoes, made in the USA,  women’s boots made in the USA or our ultimate guide to American made footwear.

  1. I had no idea that Reebok has a line of made in the USA work boots; military boots, postal approved boots, and athletic work boots!

  2. This is an awesome list! I am currently needing to buy a new pair of work boots for my husband. He is really hard on his boots, so we have to get a couple pair a year. I will be looking on this list and choosing USA made boots.

    • I found a pair in sears last year by craftsman. They were $100 but I’ve worn them every working day since and they have no holes/rips yet. Fantastic!! Will definitely get another pair.

    • Alan Osborne says:

      Thorogood American Heritage line is a really good boot. I have ordered twice from them and they hold up very well. I am a bridge inspector so I climb ,go through and under all types of terrain and their boots are still going strong. My first pair I ordered 4 years ago and they are still waterproof but the soles are wearing and so I replaced them with the exact boot. I am going to resole the first pair and use them for yard work. Make sure you look for the Made In USA tag on their site. Good luck!

  3. Ummm. Danner only makes some of their boots in the US.
    The rest are made in either China or Vietnam.

  4. I’d love to have some of these boots for my husband who works construction.

  5. I know some men who could use quality boots like these!

  6. ellen beck says:

    My husband has always made a point off buying American for boots. His feet depend on it since he used to work construction! I know he only made one exception and it was a special shoe when he broke both ankles. It is wort it to look for that USA label.

  7. My hubby needs new work boots so I need to look into some of these.

    You missed AFBoots in Mountain City , TN .

  10. Would love to see Oak Street Bootmakers on this list.

  11. This is a great list of many american made boot makers! I am looking at Justin work boots for my son as the price is great and they are high quality with lots of good reviews. He also walks a lot so likes to have 2 pairs so can switch out each day. Thanks for the list of USA boot brand options.

  12. Men like work boots made in the USA that have the best toe protection to keep their feet safe on job sites so always look for composite or steel toe, Steel toe is well known but composite toe boots are light and even stronger.

  13. Reading this and my favorite boots to wear ever arent on the list! Check out the landships from maelstrom.

  14. AngelaKempsey says:

    Finally! I can buy shoes made in USA!

  15. Hi,
    I’m looking for slippers, does anybody know of anywhere I can find a pair?

  16. White’s in Spokane has been making boots in the USA for over 150 years and in the NW almost 115 years. They make the Hathorn boots you mentioned but they are a significantly lesser boots than the top of the line White’s. White’s is a Northwest legend for logging and set the standard for wild land firefighter boots

  17. Tamra Phelps says:

    I had no idea there were so many. I really like the Yuketen moccasin inspired boots.

  18. Any time I set out to buy a new pair of shoes or work boots, I always first look for the options available which are made in the USA. Not only am I a patriot, but I am a firm believer that American quality is unbeatable, and I want only the best when I am out there shopping for new boots and shoes! Thanks for this nice complete list!

  19. So many people are tempted by the lower prices and “deals”, and disregard the importance of quality and durability when investing in a new pair of good hiking or work boots! Thank you for this list, I hope more people will choose American made boots, which are known for their higher quality and sturdiness.

    i will not support the being made in usa company that uses imported materials, assembled here, or some that are made here others elsewhere.
    we grow sheep for wool, livestock for leather, cotton for textiles. filson company comes to mind first .
    but boots, i use white custom boost, Washington state. they cost more, but i get them fit to my feet, i get leather lined, type of heel etc
    so many of the boots listed here are cheaply made and i have tried many of them

  21. Ethanej says:

    Wesco boots are made in the USA.

  22. LOVE LL Bean boots. They last forever!
