We made our first pair of running shoes in 1938 and hold the distinction as the only company that still manufactures athletic shoes in the USA. One out of every four pair of shoes we sell in the U.S. is made or assembled here. Where the domestic value is at least 70% we have labeled them "Made in the USA".
Made in the U.S.A.
As the only athletic footwear manufacturer currently making shoes in the U.S., we know towns like Skowhegan, ME are the backbone of our company. Take a closer look at the people who live there and find out why they take as much pride in their community as they do in their craft.
