    USA made boots and footwear???

    It seems that many manufacturers of shoes have moved entirely or partially over to China.

    You have to really watch them too, because some are sneaky. The stuff being made over in China and put together over here.

    What brand? Maybe model or style?

    Thanks

    Not positive, but I think Danner still manufactures their boots in Portland, OR.

    Good luck, we have been trying to purchase some boots for our guys that are berry compliant and have just now, three years later, have a manufacturer willing to make some.

    Some Danner, but not much these days. Matterhorn (not sure if all are US made). Lots of semi custom shops like White's and Nick's.

    Some of their boots are made in Mexico, but I believe most are still made in the Great State of Texas.

    Smokey Wolf, Danner has been importing some line of boots for over 10 years. About the same time they also stopped their generous warrenty. Seems to be the standard business practice here in the U.S.

    Use the country of origin tab on their website. You will be surprised how few are made in the USA.

    While not quite what the OP is looking for, it is still relevant.

    I wear RedWings, when not wearing rubber boots.....but they are not 100% USA made....it seems that some sole materials have to be made overseas....you see there are nasty chemicals used and they can't be used in the States. The boots are assembled here but some parts are imported. It does make it difficult to buy American when they outlaw the manufacturing processes and materials in this country.

    The higher-end Red Wings for the most part, but also Belleville boots.

    My weekday routine is Red Wings at work, Belleville for off-duty; but for outdoors/hiking/hunting, always Red Wings.
