We’ve had many inquiries about American made boots for women. I admit, they are difficult to find, but I’ve done the searching for you, so you can easily shop for made in USA boots.
Cold Weather Boots: Steger Mukluks
Steger Mukluks are manufactured in Ely, Minnesota. These cold weather boots are made in the Northern Cree Indian style so they are light AND warm. They have a flexible moosehide outer, durable treaded rubber soles, and wool felt liners and insoles.
Steger Mukluks are so warm and comfortable that they have been worn in Alaska on the Iditarod Race Trail, and on expeditions to the North Pole and the South Pole. You can buy them in regular or wide, depending on the width of your foot. I have a large calf and typically cannot wear boots that go over my calf; I can wear these though. They are really warm and comfortable!
