~I replaced my running shoes this week and was very disappointed to see that New Balance shoes are now made in China and Vietnam. There was one pair of the 9 NB types that said made in US but none in my size.
I think you can still get made in USA sneaks online but how do you do that without trying them on?
I bought the most comfortable pair(Asics)instead of automatically choosing NB.
Our income is from manufacturing so it makes me mad and nervous when this stuff happens. :( ~

I love Menard's ads. They tell you what items are made in the states as well as the town/state where the item is made. I couldn't find any made in USA tennis shoes when I bought mine back in June. I ended up buying 2 pair of Sketchers-made in China. Is there any shoe made in the US anymore? I work in manufacturing also and try to support our economy when possible but it is getting harder to do so.

Thanks for all the sites...........

There is no way I could buy shoes on-line......BTDT....and gave up cause I always had to send them back.

Was just reading an article today that said that China's economy could be bigger than ours within two years.
