Made in USA sneakers and athletic footwear are very hard to find, but we have the list! Our readers have been asking for American made sources for their sneakers, athletic shoes, running shoes, gym shoes, tennis shoes… or whatever you call them.

We have finally put together a source list for American made sneakers and athletic footwear for men and women that even includes walking shoes, minimalist running shoes, athletic sandals, bike shoes, golf shoes, and more. I used to sell shoes, so I have included some tips on footwear selection.

If you really want to buy American made shoes for sports, these are your options. (As always, if you feel we've missed any, let us and everyone else know by posting in the comments section.)

American Made Sneakers: SOM Footwear

SOM Footwear‘s made in USA sneakers are made around the foot so they won't hurt the foot while letting the toes do the work they were meant to do.  Many of SOM Footwear's athletic customers appreciate these sneakers for that specific reason. If you are looking for a shoe that treats your feet right while you are out on a trail run, the Trailhead has you covered! The Trailhead is SOM's most technical, sports-driven shoe, using the abrasion-resistant SuperFabric® while keeping out the mud, rain, and other elements Mother Nature can throw at you.

Casual Sneakers

Casual sneakers are shoes that are great for every day wear. They are comfortable and look fashionable too. Casual sneakers are usually fashion sneakers and not sneakers that would be used for any athletic activities.

Running Shoes, Walking Shoes, Cross Fit Shoes & Gym Shoes

If you are looking for a sneaker with more foot support, than a running shoe or walking shoe is what you need. Running shoes are usually lighter than walking shoes. Both are built for foot support. The exception is Minimalist running shoes , as they are made to be more like running barefoot, so they will have the least foot support.
