While they manufacture many of their shoes in the USA, not all of them are American-made. Make sure to check each listing individually if you want to support that made-in-the-USA game.

Oka-B Shoes

Buford, GA, manufactures Oka-B shoes. The brand began working toward the perfect spa shoe, and has since expanded to include shoes for everyday use.

Red Wing Shoes

Charles Beckman founded Red Wing Shoes in 1905. The company’s original goal was to provide quality shoes to miners, farmers, loggers, and more. Today, Red Wing continues to provide that high level of quality in their shoes for work and life. 

We love these Clara boots, which are inspired by Red Wing’s first women’s boot, made in the 1920s.

Full-grain leather forms the upper, and a grippy Vibram mini-lug constitutes the outsole, ensuring these shoes prevent slipping in all sorts of weather.

And of course, we had to include these classic Chelsea boots. We believe every wardrobe should have Chelsea boots as a staple, and we have made these ones with quality. These shoes offer full-grain leather, a clean almond toe shape, and sizes 5-11.
