If you must have athletic shoes then New Balance should be your choice. A bit more pricey than other brands but they are made in the USA. Made in England for the European markets.

4 million pairs worth? Yes. All? Not so much.

Relevance of my prior comment?
13 styles, Made in USA, men’s: New Balance USA Collection - New Balance
370 styles, no country filter, men’s: Men's Running, Casual & Athletic Shoes - New Balance

But don’t take my word for it. Take some time to ponder a fair labor audit prepared for the board of directors in 2018:
As of 2018, New Balance produces and sources in approximately 160 facilities from around 30 countries, with the majority of its production coming from Asia. The top sourcing and production countries for New Balance are: China (54 factories), Vietnam (25), and the USA (16).

New Balance and Manufacturing in the US
We are proud to be the only major company to make or assemble more than 4 million pairs of athletic footwear per year in the USA, which represents a limited portion of our US sales. Where the domestic value is at least 70%, we label our shoes Made in the USA. Our commitment to domestic manufacturing allows New Balance to employ American workers at our five facilities in Maine and Massachusetts. Whenever possible, we purchase materials from domestic suppliers who employ more than 7,000 workers locally.

Branco has had a good comment on Fox News.com for 157 days. Weekends not included. A portion has been brought here and I suspect a fair number here has seen the rest there.

This one belongs here.

The USA made New Ballance shoes have been hard to find locally for the last several years around here.
The USA has been hard to find anywhere lately.

BREAKNG NEWS - CNNLOL REPORTS THAT PRESIDENT BIDEN HAS WON THE NEW YORK CITY MAYORAL PRIMARY WITH OVER 80 MILLION VOTES. BIDEN HANDILY DEFEATED A FIELD OF THIRTEEN DEMOCRATS AND TWO REPUBLICANS.

Not too hard. I just purchased a new pair of New Balance shoes on Monday. Clearly labeled "Made In The USA".

The dogs would have got them long before they got to the front door. I would be concerned for the dogs health after sinking their teeth in that red haired witch.
