The Top Athletic Shoes Built in the USA
The following athletic shoes are all top quality shoes built in the USA. However, everyone’s feet are unique and each shoe fits differently. The best shoes won’t do you much good if they don’t fit your particular foot shape. I recommend trying on shoes to find the proper size. With this in mind, I have chosen retailers with a stellar return policy, competitive pricing, and affordable or free expedited shipping.
New Balance still makes a variety of men’s and women’s classic running shoes in the USA. My own shoes pictured (top) on the muddy NaPali Coast Trail are American made New Balance 1400 shoes. I’ve found them to be very comfortable and well made. I also own a pair of American made model 574s and have had a similarly great experience with them. Those with unusually wide or narrow feet will be happy to know New Balance caters to them with multiple widths. I’ve included many different styles of American made New Balance shoes on my Amazon athletic shoe pages which you can see here for men and women.
SAS makes athletic shoes in the USA that are comfortable, deeply cushioned, and anatomically correct which earns them Medicare diabetic approval. In addition to athletic sneakers, SAS crafts women’s boots, sandals, women’s pumps, men’s oxfords, loafers, and walking shoes.
Adidas Speedfactory AM4
The AM4 is a lightweight, ultra comfy, yet well cushioned urban running shoe made in Adidas’ Atlanta, Georgia Speedfactory utilizing their latest knit upper and boost sole technology. If you’re looking for a next gen running shoe made in the USA, the AM4 is probably it.
Psudo’s shoes are eco friendly slip-on sneakers made in the USA for under $100. They’re ultralight, well cushioned all-around, and about as practical as it gets. Psudo sneakers come in both men’s and women’s styles.
Keen Men's Braddock Shoes
Keen produces a number of American built work boots and shoes including this Braddock low top shoe. Keen is known for roomy toe boxes that allow your toes some rest. The Braddock in particular has become a popular American made hiking shoe, thus earning it a well deserved spot on this list.
