American Made Shoes

What is the old saying “Never judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes”? Well I hope those are American Made shoes so that mile was walked in comfort. The cobbler has always been an important part of every community and everyone knew the cobbler. Now days most people have any idea where their shoes were made, isn’t that sad? There must be a tremendous amount of shoes sold in the country every year right? How many of those are shoes Made in the US? I don’t know either, however I bet it is hardly a fraction of what is what is was even twenty or thirty years ago. Today’s shoe companies pay celebrities millions of dollars for endorsements while paying millions workers just a few dollars a month. This sounds upside down to me to pay someone so much for their image rather than pay for quality craftsmanship creating living wage jobs. Today shoe sales are all marketing, all hype, no emphasis on quality except the image of quality. So you won’t find any high paid pitchman here but you will find hardworking people that make American made shoes. Buy shoes that matter, buy shoes made in the USA and support your feet and America country all at once.

Aurora Shoe Company of New York was founded on the idea that a good pair of shoes should be made well and fit comfortably. We use American made materials and assemble all of our shoes in house and by hand. Our simple leather shoes are timeless in style and universal in their appeal.Assembled organically, using simple cuts of leather and minimal stitching, our shoes mold to their owners’ feet the way that only natural materials and careful design can.

Then I am not the only one who noticed this with sites that say “Made in USA” in big bold letters. I decided I was tired of spending money on cheap shoes that fall apart after a month. This was the first time I specifically started looking for Made in USA products. I was on the HH Brown site looking at shoes under different names. It says at the top in big letters “Made in USA”. I went to see if there were any on sale at other sites and one of the Born styles I looked at had a big old “Made in China” label inside. I went back to investigate further and found a qualifier. Only certain styles are made in the USA. Born shoes are made in Vietnam, China, and Mexico. I learned from this that I must check out the Made in the USA claims carefully before buying, and that finding stuff made here isn’t all that easy anymore.

I was looking through your list while at the stores. Wolverine, new balance and many more of some of the listed companies are AOL tagged made in china, Indonesia, Vietnam and other such places. I have been extensively looking for American made apparel and footwear. It is near impossible to find anymore. I was under the impression that Merrel and Columbia were also of U.S. origin, I was again disgruntled to find otherwise. It is becoming so overwhelming to have to do so much research and investigation to find things made here. It’s disgusting to find all of our favorite things not local and or American anymore. I was actually disgusted with a retail company recently who proclaims they support American made products yet a hat I was very interested in, that actually had a slogan saying ” American Pride ” , yet the tag says made in china. THAT DISGUSTED ME! You would think store owners who proclaim supporting American products would at least work on seeing that their products that insinuate American industry are actually made in an American facility. Just ranting on the loss of American jobs and products, the reason we are becoming an aggressive society.

Bear Feet are made in USA. We use mostly American-made supplies, including our soling material and most of our leather. Our shoes are artisan made with special attention given to every shoe, which makes each and every one of them particularly unique. We believe in using as many natural or organic products as possible. We produce no chemical waste, donate our 2nds and scrap leather, and keep a low stock since our products are made to order. The soles on our rubber soled shoes are made from the sap of the Hevea tree. The rubber is tapped in a process

Yo “Anonymous”, do you realize that New Balance actually employees American workers? Unlike Nike, Reebok, Adidas and the rest, they actually have created manufacturing jobs for Americans. If other companies would do this, we would not be in the mess we are in now. Take a tour and tell me the shoes they are making in the factories in Massachusetts and Maine weren’t made here. Please be informed when you make comments, because you will be called out on it. I buy New Balance BECAUSE they employ Americans. I am loyal to the brand because of that. I won’t ask what country the shoes you are wearing come from or what kind of car you drive… I can guess…. I also bet you “fell for” Nikes…. They employ zero.zero American factory workers. Congrats!
