Made in America. Those three words carry weight, now more than ever. Our country’s identity was forged and stitched by generations of makers, but over our short history, that identity has changed. Now, most of us are consumers. The professions that built our nation have since been shipped offshore to fuel our propensity for product. It’s no secret we consume at an alarming pace — imports of foreign goods and services topped $277.3billion in May 2021 alone.

The good news is, many Americans still side with the home team, when given the chance. Instead of competing on price, our homegrown goods trumpet craftsmanship and engineering as driving principles behind better products. There’s a sense of pride when reading Made in USA on a shirt tag, branded deep into a wallet or on the inside of a leather boot. Here’s where you can find the best brands still forging and stitching away stateside.

Footwear

Red Wing Shoe Company

Today, the Red Wing Heritage collection continues those founding traditions with a line of footwear still made to the same standards, all handcrafted in Minnesota.
