Sneakers Made in the USA: 3 Great Brand Names
I am constantly on the search for domestically manufactured products because I believe it is our duty as citizens to help each other prosper. Here are three great brand names of athletic shoes and sneakers made in the USA.
Some are designed for general sports, some for climbing, and others for walking. You might think it is a small gesture, but buying American made sneakers can and DOES help make America stronger. Never doubt the power of your purchase decisions in making a change for the better for our country!
Evolv Sports (above)
Evolv has a great line of athletic shoes called approach shoes. Approach shoes are a hybrid of rock climbing and hiking shoes. While Evolv's customers tend to be into one of those activities, their athletic shoes are also great for people who like to walk long distances.
Evolv Sports approach shoes are available here.
New Balance (above)
New Balance is a New England-based shoe company that is dedicated to its role in American manufacturing. For some reason many people confuse New Balance and Nike, but they are completely different companies.
New Balance has the largest array of domestically manufactured athletic shoes in the U.S. Their line includes over 200 styles and colors of male and unisex sneakers made in the USA.
New Balance also has about 12 styles of American made sneakers for women specifically. There are still more styles that are just "Assembled in the USA," but that is still much better than buying foreign-made.
A note for buying these sneakers: Look for the "Made in the USA" notation next to the shoes to ensure they are a model domestically made.
New Balance shoes are available here.

Munro is based out of and manufactures all of its shoes in Arkansas. They manufacture almost 200 styles of shoes, from heels to boots, and are one of the largest domestic manufacturers of shoes in the United States. Their offerings include a great selection of high-quality walking shoes.
