NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

American Made Work Boots


Competition with the big box stores continues to take its toll.  Our local shoe stores no longer carry my favorite Carolina brand goods.  Few if anything in stock is American made.  My preferred everyday footwear since 1970 has been steel toe engineer boots and I’ll be darned if I am going to wear something foreign made.  CLICK HERE if you want to walk another mile in our shoes.

Happy hunting.

Nice site. Good selection. I am glad to see that someone is making it possible to buy American-made products. It's sad that it's such a struggle now.

Yup, I saved my allowance and got some Danner's, made in Portland Oregon.

My favorite Carolina boot is now discontinued and the replacement is made in China. I bought Chippewas last time. Nice boots that fit well with a US flag pin attached to the laces. But they say "assembled" in the USA, not "made" in the USA. Apparently environmental regulations have driven most US tanneries out of business. Now it looks like leather goods totally made in the USA are virtually non-existent. Even the leather used in "Made In The USA" leather goods now may be coming from tanneries in China.

We're screwed.
