Confession: I am obsessed with boots. To my husband's dismay, boots have taken over our closets. Hiking boots, ankle boots, knee high boots, cowboy boots….you name a type of boot and I own it. Out of all of the boots I own, only two brands are made or assembled in the USA. I have vowed to add more American made women's boot brands to my collection and went on the hunt to find them.
American Made Women's Boots
It is really, really hard to find boots that are made in the USA in brick and mortar retail stores. Unless you know what brands you are looking for, it takes a lot of time to search every shoe and every box for the country of origin. I have found that finding selections online is a lot easier. All of the American made women's boots include in this list can be purchased online. Make sure to read the product description before you add a boot to your online shopping cart. Many brands on this list only make select styles in the USA. Those that are, are clearly labeled.
To make your search even easier, I broke all of the boot brands I found up into lists by category. As always, we update our lists frequently, so let us know in the comments below if we missed a brand you love.

Let’s buy American made gifts. We’ve got all the good ideas.
How to Avoid Tariffs: Buy American! Start Here
Freebird makes some of the sexiest and quality cowgirl boots and booties in the world!
What about Grunden’s?
Dehner Boots, in Omaha, NE makes custom and stock boots and shoes in a variety of styles. They specialize in the military and equestrian markets but have a variety of products. http://www.dehner.com
Red Wing Shoes (huge selection of boots) are made in the USA! Even their components are USA.
Unfortunately, Red Wing and others are known to support left leaning causes so saying “made in America” is a way for them to appear more American. It is worth the extra step or two more and more people are taking to avoid supporting these type of companies. Also, you can have a button put on as the final step in manufacturing and call it “Made in America”. Proceed with caution if you are trying to truly support local jobs and companies.
C… left or right American shoes and boots support AMERICANS. Leave politics out of this.
Kamik boots are no longer made just in the USA or Canada. Really disappointed when I ordered a pair only to find they were made in China. There are many companies out there that don’t disclose where they are made but I had read several articles on Kamik and thought I’d be getting a boot made in the USA or Canada. Not true.
Thanks! I noticed this too and removed Kamik from our list.
Chief is no longer in business. I went to your link and it took me to a page explaining. You might want to check that out. Darn. Thanks for this list though!
Thanks! I took them off the list. 🙂
Lucchese makes marvelous cowboy boots and other styles for women and men in Texas. I wear my cowboy boots constantly…they are well worth the price.
Weinbrenner Shoes are made inMarshfield WI. They are in Fleet Farm store under the Thorogood name.
Absolutely must add Red Wing Shoes to your list. Each boot is made using just one cut from a cow hide ensuring the strongest leather. Made in Red Wing, MN.
I don’t need boots like these but mukluks look so pretty. Love the look of them.
I love these style boots and for someone like myself I am very picky at choosing boots.
Manitobah Mukluks are handmade in Canada by Native Americans who own the company.
I love this list!!! Thank you so much 🙂
White’s Boots in Spokane, WA are made in the USA. My husband had a pair custom made from there and has worn them for years.
LL Bean are some of the best — indestructable!
I second that you missed Red Wing Shoes. A couple years ago they started making beautiful USA made Heritage boots for women.
can you tell me who makes the mens mukluk in the picture?
I love mukluks and have a pair- and yes they are USA made. I also believe Minnetonka makes boots and they are in Minnesota. There are quite a few boot makers still in the USA some are quite small and do wonderful work.
Ellen, be ure to check your labels when looking at Minnetonka boots. They look like they might be made in USA, but every pair I have ever picked up has not been American made. The Steger Mukluks are a good alternative. I’m thinking about a pair myself!
I had no idea that UGG was making boots in this country now. There are some really nice looking boots here.
“Frye” makes good quality, fashionable, leather boots in USA as well. They are sold in Nordstrom‘s, Bloomingdales, maybe Macy’s and other stores for sure too.
The ‘Red Wing Shoes‘ company has been making BOOTS in Red Wing, Mn for over 100 years.
Caution with Danner Boots: They also make their boots in China and the market is full of them. They do not feel anything like the American made Danner boot.
I’ve heard of a couple these well known companies, but I’m excited to have this list so I can check out all of them, as I would be looking for boots and want them made in USA!
I am glad more American Companies are making boots, so many countries use child and slave labor practice.
All of these boot companies seem terrific to buy from. I do like the boots in the photos, the colors are great!
I read on another site that “If every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made products, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs.” If that is true, it is a reason to buy American in and of itself. Do you think taht statistic can be right?
I just adore those TwoAlity Boots. I like the Raspberry color. The idea is so cool looking!
I love the design of the boots in the photos! So modern and colorful. I do need a good pair especially after last winter.
We also offer American-made boots. Check out our blog post about them http://blog.coastalboot.com/2015/12/buy-american-made-boots.html
Also you have forgotten, tony loma boots, redwing still makes some in the usa, wolverine still has some usa made, and or assembled, and there is hersey custom running shoes, and carolina boots, as well, as thurgood, and belview boots of Ill. and johnason shoes as well as aerolite, and bass still has at least one model shoe made in the states.
also Sloggers are rain/garden boots and shoes made in USA
Love when boots are made here I’m so sad thaT I can no longer buy Frye because they don’t make much here any longer. My old campus boots are going to have to last a while. Maybe time to look into these others!!!
Hi, there is at least one company left out, Chippewa Boots originally out of Wisconsin. They make excellent Made in the US outdoor leather boots including hunting, work, emergency service personnel, hiking footwear just to name a few categories. Also Justin Boots, the leader US made western footwear and boots.
could use any of them
Definitely could use new boots this season! Super cute ideas
