Everyone is looking for American made shoes. I admit, they are difficult to find, but I've put together this extensive list. It contains brands that make all of their shoes in the USA, but I've also listed brands whose lines contain some made in USA shoes and some that are imported. Always check your labels and look for “Made in USA” before you buy! (Sandals featured in cover image are by Earth Runners.)
American Made Shoes: Top Picks
Made in USA Boots: Steger Mukluks
Steger Mukluks makes men's and women’s boots in Ely, Minnesota. These boots are great for everyday wear and keep the tootsies warm in temps down to -10 Fahrenheit, and down to -40F for the extreme styles. You can buy them in regular or wide, depending on the width of your foot. The upper part of the boots are made of wool or canvas (depending on style) and moose hide and the soles are made of rubber with a contour insole.
The Steger Mukluks Arctic Ribbon boot, pictured below, is an extreme style boot designed for cold weather explorers with cold temperatures in mind. They are recommended for extended wear in extreme conditions.
