Our readers have been asking for sources for American made sneakers, athletic shoes, running shoes, gym shoes, tennis shoes… or whatever you call them….since we first published our list of American made shoes almost 10 years ago. We know sneakers made in USA and American made athletic footwear brands can be very hard to find, so I have created a list exclusively for them.

Casual Sneakers Made in USA

Casual sneakers are shoes that are great for everyday 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.

  • COMUNITYMade casual comfort American-made sneakers are handcrafted in downtown Los Angeles, California by highly skilled craftspeople. Style options are available in women's and men's sizes. The COMUNITYMade space is designed as a spot for you to hang out, meet new friends and talk about ways to get involved in our community. The store's “front living room” is the showcase for their handcrafted in DTLA shoes that you can try on and purchase on-site. It is also a place to come and sip your coffee, cozy up, recharge, and network – it's about community! I love the brand for its stylish styles and fun colors! The Womens' Molino sneakers made in USA are my favorite. They're comfortable, easy to walk in, and make it fun to dress up or down any outfit.

American Made Tennis Shoes, 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.

  • Victory Sportswear road, trail, and running sneakers are made with premium sued and mesh upper. They are individually stitched in their Fitchburg, MA shop. Victory Sportswear merged with Hersey Shoe Company in 2019. Victory Sportswear still makes the running shoes that Hersey Shoe Company was known for, but now offers styles for everyone from walkers to marathon runners.
