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.

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!
