Now you don’t have to wear out any shoe leather finding American shoes

I know what you are thinking.  You’re thinking “what a beautiful shoe!”  And you are right to think that.  It is a beautiful shoe.  It’s an Allen Edmonds shoe made by members of our extended American family in Port Washington, Wisconsin.  I have done several posts on Allen Edmonds in the past.  But one does not live by Allen Edmonds alone.  That’s why I have done posts on Sloggers, Okabashi, and New Balance.  But my friends over at USA Love List have gone me one better.  Last week they put together a very complete list of all manufacturers still making shoes on our shores.  The next time you need a pair for shoes, I urge you to check out American shoe manufacturers such as those listed by USA Love List.

On a related note, for a limited time you can save a few clams on a pair of sneakers that will be truly a one of a kind.  New Balance is running a St. Patrick’s Day promotion on custom 993s

or 574s.

You’ll be able to design a truly unique pair of shoes that simply shouts YOU, you’ll save seven bucks and you’ll get free shipping.  Such a deal!
